  1. A TreeView in ComboBox - once again

    A TreeView in ComboBox would be most helpful as both a stand-alone control and when editing within the Grid.

    something like this: http://www.brad-smith.info/blog/archives/193 (example from .NET Windows forms world)

    * Used for relative small tree data structure.
    * User may select one (many) item(s), without _loosing context_ (no interrupting dialog box, 'flat' interface).
    * User may accept selection by click on item, or pressing 'enter'.
    * User may cancel (hide) popup when click outside control/popup (ie in another control, that received focus) or pressing escape - like in combobox/dropdown.
    * It will be nice if user can select items using…

          • Please support Kendo Tree List column resize for touch devices

            Kendo tree list does not support column resize for touch devices. It would be very helpful if this can be considered since our application supports touch devices and without column resizing feature in kendo tree list columns it is very difficult to read the text in tablets, etc

              • Configure Kendo Spreadsheet to paste values only (keeping cell configuration)

                I know that Kendo Spreadsheet works like most popular Spreadsheets (Excel and Google Spreadsheet) where, if you copy or drag and paste values from cells, you will copy also the styles, validations, etc from that cell to the new one (unless you select "paste values only" in a context menu or ctrl + shift + v).

                It would be awesome if we can set how this works by configuring a property in the Spreadsheet configuration, something like pasteValuesOnly: false/true or even more complex with an object where you can choose if paste values, validations, formulas, styles or whatever. Also you…

                • MultiSelect: SetOptions

                  In Angular we want to lazy initiate the options of a multiselect. After angular loads the multiselect directive, the control does not react on changing the k-options variable. If I recall, it should be solved when the control supports the setOptions method, like Kendo UI Grid.

                  • Show scheduler events >24h as normal events, not in the all day slot

                    Currently events >24h are automatically shown in the all day area. This is confusing if the event starts or ends somewhere during the day. E.g. it starts at 5 p.m. on tuesday and ends on 11 a.m. on thursday.

                    Noone knows when the resource is really available if the event is shown as all day from tuesday to thursday.

                    There should be an option to turn that behaviour off and show such events as regular events.

                    Maybe the only thing needing change is this line in _renderEvents:
                    var isMultiDayEvent = event.isAllDay || event.end.getTime() - event.start.getTime() >= MS_PER_DAY;

                        • improve description of options in api

                          I find the documentation is critically lacking with regards to the available options for a feature.

                          Here is an example of what I mean...

                          http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/diagram/layout#configuration-alignContent

                          The diagram Layout > alignContent feature "Specifies the alignment of the content."

                          Ok, but the documentation does not even say what the allowed values are. Instead, it just has "alignContent String (default: "start")".

                          Now, I guess the allowed values here are the same values allowed for an SVG text-anchor.
                          https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/text-anchor

                          How about adding those possible values to the api documentation, or including a link to the relevant area of the SVG specification?

                          Hope this makes…

                            • Allow customization of generated HTML

                              The Editor is currently very reliant on inline styles. Inline styles can be used for XSS attacks, and per the OWASP guidelines they should be sanitized: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/XSS_(Cross_Site_Scripting)_Prevention_Cheat_Sheet#RULE_.234_-_CSS_Escape_And_Strictly_Validate_Before_Inserting_Untrusted_Data_into_HTML_Style_Property_Values

                              This is not easy to do "after the fact", as it needs to be two way.

                              Suggest that the editor can be customized similar to TinyMCE (https://www.tinymce.com/docs/configure/content-formatting/#exampleofusageoftheformatsoption) to allow classes rather than inline styles.

                                • Separate options for Filters and Fields to include in KendoPivotGrid

                                  Now if you set filterable true for KendoPivotGrid you get two options - Include Fields and Fields Filter.
                                  In some cases you need only one of this options and it is not good to be with one option - filterable.

                                  • Improve your documentation.

                                    I am trying to use the DropDownList and find this level of documentation:

                                    <div class="demo-section k-content">
                                    <h4>Products</h4>
                                    @(Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
                                    .Name("products")
                                    .DataTextField("ProductName")
                                    .DataValueField("ProductID")
                                    .DataSource(source => {
                                    source.Read(read =>
                                    {
                                    read.Action("GetProducts", "Home");
                                    });
                                    })
                                    .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width: 100%" })
                                    )
                                    </div>

                                    The only other source file is a simple Controller Action method to return a result. There is no indication of what type of data is to be returned by the read.Action("GetProducts", "Home");

                                    What fields are required in the data?
                                    What field or fields are passed back to the Controller on Submit?
                                    Is it JSON?
                                    Is it in a wrapper like…

                                    • add pushInsert method to DataSource API

                                      The DataSource API currently includes the methods pushCreate, pushDestroy, and pushUpdate. These methods roughly correspond to add, remove, and set. Unfortunately there is no pushInsert to enable adding new items to the data source at a specific position. Adding such a method would be consistent with the existing add/remove/insert methods.

                                      • Make template expression delimiter '#' not conflict with HTML encoding &#123;

                                        Kendo templates are broken if they contain any character, which is encoded to '&#123;' since '#' is en expression delimiter for kendo templates. Documentation suggests to escape '#' with '\\#', but this makes the very basic syntax (example using ASP.NET MVC) look ridiculous: instead of writing @Localization.Get("aaa") I need to use @Html.Raw(Html.Kendo().TemplateEncode(Html.Encode(Localization.Get("aaa")))) for every localization string I have in kendo templates (since any string may contain unicode characters in some language).
                                        If you had '##' or '$' as expression delimiter, simple @Localization.Get("aaa") would work in 99.9% of cases.
                                        I suggest you:
                                        1) Fix current template syntax parser to not treat…

                                        • Support for multiselect in kendo scheduler across resource grouping in Horizontal grouping.

                                          To select multiple events from different groups in kendo ui scheduler with angular js, but currently it only allows multiple events selection in same group.
