  1. The text binding is not supported by the DatePicker widget

    I'd like the formatted "text" property of the DatePicker widget to be bindable to a model. The DatePicker widget currently supports the value binding.

    This way the model would contain the same string value entered by a user and not a javascript date object.

    • Customize scrollbars with your themes

      Especially with dark themes such as Metro Black, the traditional browser scrollbar does not really fit. I know scrollbar customization is not available in all browsers, but no fallback support is required (as the css is simply ignored by these browsers), and I believe it would greatly benefit users of the browsers that are supported.

        • Kendo UI Map control marker select tool

          What I want to do is click with the mouse and draw a rectangle on the map, around one or more markers, to select all the markers in the rectangle. I've seen this done on other map controls by being able to select what happens when the user clicks on the map and moves the mouse.

          User selects "Pan" (usually from a tool bar) - this is the standard behavior now
          click on the map and move the mouse - map pans / moves with the mouse

          User selects "Rectangle"
          click on the map, hold down the left mouse button,…

          • Add spell check to Kendo UI editors

            I'm resurrecting this on the suggestion of Todd Anglin. An earlier request for this feature was declined because modern browsers include spell check.

            However, there are many use cases where this is no use. In my particular case I need:

            - Spell Check to work in IE8
            - Custom (and programmatically accessible) dictionaries
            - The ability to programmatically turn spell check on/off on a field by field basis

            • Add image crop and edit tools similar to the asp.Net ajax editor

              We build a project on Kendo, and incorrectly assumed we would see similar levels of tools in the ditor as per the ASP.Net ajax implementation. We were surprised to find the image editor was not available. I guess I dont really understand why you couldnt call the existing functionality from the server side using Ajax as a fast way to beef up the functionality for Kendo?

              • In a navigatable grid with row selection mode, It should be possible to focus row using arrow keys (up or down) instead of spacebar

                In a navigatable grid with row selection mode, It should be possible to focus row using arrow keys (up or down) instead of space bar.

                Right now when user press arrow keys, only once cell is being highlighted and focused. If user wants to highlight that row then he needs to press spacebar.

                this behavior is confusing for end user.

                • Make an example/blog post about Kendo UI Web + Facebook React

                  React uses a declarative paradigm that makes it easier to reason about a JavaScript application. React computes the minimal set of changes necessary to keep your DOM up-to-date.

                  Kendo UI seems not to have such an update feature. But since React works with most libraries and frameworks, please create an example app with React or make a blog post about how to use React together with Kendo UI Web.

                  • SPA View Locator and Collector

                    Hi,
                    i think SPA View needs to be extended with tools to dynamically load new view template/scripts for scenarios (if already loaded dont call server load) in with there are many views that cannot be loaded af first time. Maybe it could implement it as a sort of view datasource for example based on server side with web-api or similar. It can be also extended with a binding for initial view script execution. It will be interesting also the ability of collect rendered or loaded view to quick reuse them with switch transition (extend layout switch with animation switch).

                    • Add a small nanoscopic progress bar

                      Add a small nanoscopic progress bar featuring realistic trickle animations to convince your users that something is happening. This would be perfect for Turbolinks, Pjax, and other Ajax-heavy SPA's.

                      • 3D option for Funnel Chart

                        The new funnel in the Q3 release is great, but it looks very flat.
                        It would be great to have a more 3D look.

                          • Consider changing scheduler behavior regarding exceptions from recurring events

                            Currently, if you create a recurring event, then edit a single occurrence (make an exception), and then later edit the series, the exception will be lost.

                            Let's say you've booked a room from 10 - 12 every Tuesday for the next year, then edit a single occurrence maybe two months ahead, and then later need to perhaps correct a spelling error in the series title. The edit you made to the single occurrence would then be lost, and that's not so easily spotted...

                            I would suggest letting the user decide whether or not to delete exceptions from the series when…

                              I discussed the matter with our developers and they explained this behavior is by design.

                              We’ll discuss further whether this behavior should be modified in a future version and will follow the votes in this thread to gauge the interest in that.

                            • Use .children() instead of ">" in jQuery selectors

                              We were recently going to upgrade from Kendo 2012Q2 to 2013Q1. Unfortunately we can't because we require support for IE8+.

                              Our issue is the grid's dataItem method. In IE, it's just too slow. In order to use the newer version of Kendo, we have to upgrade to jQuery 1.9.1 (supplied in the Kendo package). In some cases, the selectors you are using are 13x slower than they were in jQuery 1.7.1.

                              http://jsperf.com/jquery-1-9-performance-issues

                              In the dataItem method, you're using the ">" selector instead of children. This, coupled with :not causes this method to crawl.

                              In the jsperf test I linked above,…

                              • Allow Scheduler to have an EndTime after midnight

                                Some schedules require appointments that exceed midnight (for discussion's sake, a company that operates night shifts to accommodate customers on the other side of the world). In this case I would like the "Monday" column to start at Monday 6pm to Tuesday 7am.

                                This is instantly doable in WPF RadScheduleView by setting the property. I would expect this to be useful here as well, since there's an EndTime property it just needs to be expanded to display appointments correctly.

                                • When user clicks to open a popover, any other open popovers should be closed

                                  When multiple popovers are supported, clicking on a button to open popover1 should automatically close popover2. Your popover demo demonstrates the problem, but bypasses the pain point by positioning the popover buttons on opposite sides of the form. Often multiple buttons on a Nav bar will cause popovers, which will overwrite portions of each other when multiple are displayed simultaneously. I tried a quick workaround, which didn't work.

                                  • Add RadScheduler functionality to Kendo Scheduler to allow resourceplanning

                                    I need a resourceplanning scheduler, with horizontal grouping like http://demos.kendoui.com/web/scheduler/resources-grouping-horizontal.html

                                    But I don't want one calendar for each resource like the mentioned example does. I only want one calendar displayed, but each day will provide one column for each resource.
                                    RadScheduler has an exact example here - http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/scheduler/examples/resourcegrouping/defaultcs.aspx (check both "group by speaker" and "group by date" and then select week view).

                                    But this is not possible with Kendo scheduler and it's not in the pipeline as of nov. 19. 2013.
                                    Buy supporting the same possibilities as RadScheduler it would allow a "one glance" resourcescheduler - it would be easy…

                                    • Add a search option to the header/footer of the grid

                                      Give the developer an option to show a search field in the grid. This option should be configurable so we could chose which column(s) to search in. With a single keyword the user would be able to get a specific row.

                                        Thank you for the suggestion, I will pass it to our devteam.

                                        A possible option for you at this point would be to utilize the grid’s toolbar template for inject this search box and perform search based on your custom logic.

                                      • Customization of Grid Scrollbars

                                        It would be great to have a couple of CSS classes to do customization of the style of scrollbars in Kendo UI Web controls (multi-browser) because otherwise its really complicated to integrate javascript plugins to do this in the Kendo UI structure.

                                        • Shared Data Source with individual filters per component

                                          Add functionality that will allow adding shared datasource to multiple components with individual filters.

                                          This way we will be able to have one data source and multiple grids showing different part od data.
