      • Combobox support for paging and virtual scrolling

        Combob support for paging would show use the datasource paging settings similar to the grid control and show a label at the bottom as you scroll (Ex. "Displaying 10 of 100 items) and as you scroll increment the items in the list by the configured page size from the datasource.

          • Add few basic html helpers in Kendo()

            it would be nice if Html.Kendo() would has:
            - textboxfor
            - checkboxfor
            - button
            - actionlink
            with apropriate KendoUI styling. Now we have to add CSS classes.

            • KendoUI MVC Serverside wrappers should allow exporting grid data to PDF, Excel and CSV.

              KendoUI MVC Serverside wrappers should allow exporting grid data to PDF, Excel and CSV. While this has been asked for before, what I am asking is that this feature be part of the KendoUI complete with server side wrappers so that this is no longer just a limitation with the client-side framework. Every business application we have with grids requires the ability to export in PDF, Excel and CSV formats.

                Thanks for the feedback, we are researching whether export functionality can be accomplished using our internal services, possibly utilizing Telerik Backend Services for that matter.

                At this juncture you can use third-party libraries for export, as demonstrated in these code library samples:
                http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/export-grid-to-pdf
                http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/export-grid-to-excel

              • Ribbon UI Element

                That would be great if you create UI element Ribbon. With automatic buttons scaling on window resize.

                • DataSource's "read", "fetch", and "sync" methods should return a deferred

                  There has been many scenarios where I've needed to know when a DataSource finishes a "read" or "sync" operation.

                  I know there's the global "sync" event that I can bind to, but a lot of the time I only care about the result of one specific sync call. I can use the "one" method to only listen to it once, but this complicates things when I also care about errors. Since I need to register callbacks for both the "sync" and "error" events, and then unregister either one or the other, depending on which event fired.

                  It's even harder hooking…

                  • Ability to specify data format (MVVM)

                    It would be convenient if you could specify the output format using a data attribute such as the following rather than having to write a new viewmodel function:

                    <span data-format="{0:C}" data-bind="text: amount"></span>

                    Currently you have to bind the element to a new viewmodel function which doesn't lend itself to the observable concept with remote data sources.

                      • Support select elements with optgroups in kendoDropDown

                        Currently it seems that kendoDropDown only supports select elements with options and not optgroups. Would like to see this widget support select elements with both optgroup and option elements.

                        • Cache and load static files from local storage

                          To speed up website load time dramatically, it should be possible to cache and load static KendoUI-Files from the local browser storage.

                          Discussion / Example: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4733102

                          Maybe KendoUI can also provide us with an API to store files, data etc. on local storage...

                                  Thank you for the suggestion, I suppose you expect this feature to be supported via a service or API method which exports the content of the grid on the server, is that correct? Let me know if otherwise.

                                  Note that the logic for grid content export to PDF/Excel presented in the examples below should be applicable for different server frameworks:

                                  Export to PDF
                                  http://www.kendoui.com/code-library/mvc/grid/export-grid-to-pdf.aspx

                                  Export to Excel
                                  http://www.kendoui.com/code-library/mvc/grid/export-grid-to-excel.aspx

                                  You can also check this thread:
                                  http://feedback.kendoui.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback/suggestions/3494585-kendoui-mvc-serverside-wrappers-should-allow-expor

                                • save/restore grid column state

                                  Currently in Kendo UI if a user sorts a grid column and leaves the page, when they come back the sorting has been reverted. I think there should be a way to automatically save the grids sorting state (potentially in cookies) so that when a user leaves the page and comes back, the state is how they left it.

                                  • Allow users to search in the grid for NULL/ NOT NULL values

                                    The grid has a number of built in filters, what is not supported is searching for cells that have no value or some value (i.e. NULL or NOT NULL).
                                    This would be a very useful addition.

                                      • MVC RemoteAttribute support for remote validation

                                        Since the new grid only works with kendo validator, it is important to support all the same jquery validate features that work seamlessly with MVC. The old telerik grid worked just fine with remote validation.

                                        • Display Aggregate Information on collapsed Grids

                                          Grids correctly display aggregate information in a groupFooterTemplate, but it only shows this information when the section of the group-by is visible (not collapsed).

                                          Is there a way to display the aggregate information in a template that shows when that section is collapsed?
