  1. To auto save child grid when saving parent grid when creating new data

    Currently Jun 2014, when saving new data on hierarchy (parent/child) grid, there is no possible way to save the header data, get the pk of the header and pass the pk to child data and save the child data.

    I suggest to add a feature to auto save both parent and child data when user click save button when creating new data.
    Basically do ajax save for the parent, on success pass header's pk to do ajax save for child.

    • Make the Upload widget bindable to a datasource

      In order to be able to manage files attached to server objects, it would be nice if we could bind the Upload widget to a datasource.
      The read() method of the datasource could be used to load the widget with the list of files attached to a given server object.
      The create() method would be used to upload new files to the sever.
      The destroy() method would be used for deleting existing files on the server.

      This would make the upload widget more consistent with other widgets like the combo boxes or the dropdown lists.

        • Calculated grid columns

          Currently, it's very difficult to set up a grid that has a calculated column, where the result is not editable by the user.

          It's pretty easy to set up a javascript function to calculate and update the value using `dataItem.set("Column", value)`, but this does not work if the column is not also Editable.

          Currently, you need to hack together some kind of text replacement for the Editor Template, and there doesn't appear to be a simple way to do this from the MVC wrappers. You can create a disabled or readonly textbox, but I'd prefer that it looks like those…

            • extend table initialization for grid

              The current table initialization used in grid is not robust and does not supports many features. The main reason is because _columns function in grid does not leverages existing framework functionality. I propose to slightly modify the existing code responsible for parsing column configuration to use kendo.parseOptions instead of working directly with attributes. You can see my re-implementation of this function at [http://jsbin.com/pihefuva/1].

              • Option to activate incell editing mode in the Grid on double-click

                Based on the examples here (http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/grid/editing-custom.html), "incell" editing allows editing a single cell at a time. The edit mode is activated upon a single click in the cell.

                I would like to have a way to combine this with "cell" selectable mode, e.g. like this?
                * A single click on a cell selects the cell and fires the "change" event.
                * A double click on a cell activates the edit mode for the cell.

                  • Grid Keyboard Navigation Problem (please fix)

                    Hi, Please refer to the following forum for more detail about the problem and my suggestion:
                    http://www.telerik.com/forums/grid-row-navigation-by-keyboard#ncKqVMBBqUe5ZymNXwpFgg

                    Summary: I think in Grid widget, there should be difference between selectable="cell" and selectable="row" (for keyboard Up&Down Arrow navigation). or perhaps you want to add another choice, example selectable: "row cell" (to replace the current setting for "row") and the selectable = "row", just select the row not cell and also DO NOT go to grid header!
                    I believe it's good that you enhance/solve this shortcoming inside the Grid design, because developer like us who has already decided row selection (selectable: "row") during…

                    • Make all widgets instantly responsive

                      Sometimes there is a delay between when a user interacts with a widget and when something actually "happens". This is especially evident on mobile apps (e.g. AppBuilder) when there are complex bound value changes/dom changes.

                      An example would be clicking a button in a ButtonGroup to display a ListView that uses a remote bound DataSource which displays images and text in the list. Sometimes, in scenarios such as this, you'll click on the button of the ButtonGroup and nothing will happen for a few seconds. This makes for a poor user experience.

                      Since we can't make the app react instantaneously…

                      • The new diagram looks like an awesome control, will it be possible to add the datawiz charts within the diagram as well?

                        Right now it seems to support only Shapes and Textboxes, what plans do you have for supporting Charts and perhaps any plain HTML (that would then be possible to "kendoify")?

                        • Support Server Side Aggregating When Grid Bound to DataTable

                          The documentation wrongly says that the grid will perform all server operations of paging, sorting, grouping, and aggregating whether bound to an iQueryable interface or a DataTable (http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/getting-started/using-kendo-with/aspnet-mvc/helpers/grid/faq).

                          It turns out, after an extensive support ticket, that the documentation is plainly wrong. I have been told that only the COUNT() aggregate is supported when doing server side operations and bound to a Grid.

                          My request is that this gap in functionality should be fixed so that server operations work for both iQueryable datasources and DataTables.

                              • Right Side Column Freeze in Kendo Grid should also be there rather than only in LHS

                                There is an option to freeze the left most column of the Kendo Grid by setting the lockable property.
                                But this is limited to the Left Hand Side columns only and there are no ways suggested to freeze the Right Most columns.

                                  However you cannot add an id to the menu item you are creating. This makes it very difficult to remove items by using:

                                  menu.remove("#Item1");

                                  The only way round this is to assign a unique class to each menu item and then remove them using:

                                  menu.remove(".news");

                                  If an id can be added that would be great. You have an example here:

                                  http://docs.kendoui.com/kendo-ui/api/web/menu#methods-remove

                                  Which is what we would like to do except the items will be created via a program…

                                  • Enable "Binding" for Drag and Drop

                                    The "Drag and Drop" system in Kendo is pretty good, but it has the distinct characteristic of being pretty much DOM only; It won't really "bind" to underlying data.

                                    This would be an extremely useful feature - the "suggested fix" for this right now is to use the kendo ListView and do a search for GUID on the events firing, and while this isn't really "bad", it's pretty cumbersome and kind of obtuse most of the time.

                                    I have spent extensive time looking at the source code for Drag and Drop, and it would not be very difficult to give…

                                    • to add section separator on kendo.format

                                      http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0c899ak8(v=vs.110).aspx describes all sorts of format strings which can be used in formatting templates. For example, if one wants a conditional on positive, negative, and zero values, one can use such format "{0:N2};neg{0:N2};no value". Search in the link for Section Separator

                                      • Add new event to the Validator, raised only by validateInput

                                        The currently existing 'validate' event is only triggered on submit of the form or by developer code. Ideally, an event should be available that is raised by any unobtrusive validation event.

                                        Ádd new event to the Validator, raised by validateInput. This will allow custom handling of validation errors, even when the user is not trying to submit the form.

                                        Usage : for example, toggling bootstrap 'has-error' class on the parent element 'form-group'.

                                        • Add support for group mask sections in the MaskedTextBox widget.

                                          Instead of only supporting single character masks, I suggest support be added for group masks.

                                          Example:

                                          $("#time").kendoMaskedTextBox({
                                          mask: "HH:MM TT",
                                          rules: {
                                          "HH" : /^(([0]?[1-9])|([1][0-2]))/,
                                          "MM": /(([0-5][0-9])|([1-9]))/,
                                          "TT": /[AaPp][Mm]$/
                                          }
                                          });

                                          or

                                          $("#time").kendoMaskedTextBox({
                                          mask: "t",
                                          rules: {
                                          "t" : /^(([0]?[1-9])|([1][0-2])):(([0-5][0-9])|([1-9])) [AaPp][Mm]$/
                                          }
                                          });
