  1. Miscellaneous text annotations for all charts in Kendo UI DataViz

    We need functionality to allow annotations to charts (e.g. free text).

    We need to annotate our charts with text that is:

    - not a series value or note
    - not a category note
    - has no relationship with the plot data
    - not a title

    An example is text outlining the source of the data,

    We have succeeded in annotating charts with Snap.svg.js but the annotations do not survive the imageDataUrl() function for download (or the svg() function).

    Axis & series notes won't achieve what we want to do.

    We need to place free text (for example) at the top-left,…

    • Include a catchable "errorDisplay" function

      In followup to my last statement about adding data to the validation events, Kendo UI's validator would be greatly, greatly, GREATLY augmented with an extremely simple function...

      onErrorDisplay(target, message, invalid) {

      }

      The sole purpose of this function is to allow users to hook into it, and custom handle error display more finely. It is fairly simple to add, look at line 11924 of the kendo source file; At Line 11948, there is the code to show the error message. The onErrorDisplay function would allow for catching that and interpreting it differently if requested.

      • Expose API to get selected timeslot from the scheduler programmatically

        There should be a way to programmatically get the selected timeslots from the scheduler. This might need to have the ability to not lose focus on blur of scheduler

            • Keyboard navigation for mobile

              At least, including:

              1. Tab stop for mobilebutton, mobilebuttongroup, mobileswitch.
              2. Selection support for mobilebutton (spacebar), mobileswitch (spacebar/left/right), mobilebuttongroup (left/right/up/down)

              MobileButtonGroup and MobileSwitch are elegant replacements for radio and checkbox inputs, but they need keyboard support to improve desktop accessibility.

                • Kendo Web - Mobile as ListView - search field should not be scrollable

                  In Kendo Web - Mobile as ListView - search field should not be scrollable, only listings should be scrollable.

                  If user scrolls down couple of pages down and now he wants improvise the search, then again he has to scroll back to type in search field. If only listing scrollable then search field is always visible where user can type whenever wanted.
                  I dont know how this is missed in the current release. This is very basic.

                  • Make Grid really responsive

                    Currently when screen sizes get smaller and smaller the grid is squeezing the columns as much as possible. But if there are a lot of columns this will soon hit a size that couldn't be squeezed any more. So the result is scrolling which is giving a bad user experience. However often there are columns in a grid that could be omitted on smaller screens because they aren't that important.
                    How about adding some type of "class" to the grid column to tell Kendo that this column should only be shown on medium sized screens and up and another one…

                    • Add support for Labels for Bullet Charts

                      My marketing department has requested a specific look for a chart. The Moc up image is http://i.imgur.com/Z2hKaei.jpg in order to achive what they are asking I need the Labels to work in the Bullet Charts.

                      It would also be great if you could add a label to the Target as pictured in the image.

                      • Kendo grid does not use the OData option of selecting specific columns for retrieval

                        We use the Kendo Grid with a DataSource connected to an OData service. We also use the OOB Kendo Grid functionality to hide columns in the UI (column.hidden = true). Through testing we found out that the Kendo grid does not use the OData option of selecting specific columns for retrieval. The grid will request all columns for a table, which leads to overhead in the amount of data sent from the server to the client. We sometimes have tables with 50 columns, for which only 10 columns are shown.

                        • Grid - Virtualization of remote data (odata) - Keyboard Support with virtual scrolling enabled

                          It will be nice to have keyboard support for Grid with Virtualization of remote data (odata) and virtual scrolling enabled.

                          As it can depicted in your demo:
                          KendoUI meets Wakanda, http://wakanda.spirit.de:8081/

                          if you try to press key down, the grid is not scrolling down when you bypass the limit of visible rows. In addition, if you scroll down using mouse (scrollbar), if you try to press key up then the grid is not scrolling up. Also, keyboard keys page up / down, home, end and in general keyboard functionality is not supported.

                          Despite of keyboard support, your demo is impressive!

                            • Support Mixed Filtering (client + server)

                              For controls like ListView (web and mobile). We have features like server filtering. I feel there should be a configuration to perform filter operation mixing both client side and server side filtering.
                              Scenario 1: Lets say I have 20 results to be populated based on the filter criteria and I have 2 results already present on the client side and rest 18 are present on the server rather than fetching all 20 results from server freshly this way data transfer can be optimized up to certain extent.

                              Scenario 2: filtering should results based on the client side results and list…

                              • Drawer widget: allow for configurable open direction.

                                I'd like to use the newly-decoupled Drawer to be able to design a context-sensitive help section, a la manage.windowsazure.com. Doing so would require that you be able to configure the drawer to open from the bottom.

                                Technically, it should already be configurable anyways, as many mobile apps (like the Facebook app) have a drawer on the right and the left.

                                  • Add the onRowSelect event to the grid

                                    Please consider adding the onRowSelect event back to the grid so that it functions like it did in the free telerick code before Kendo.

                                    In Kendo If you have data and buttons (edit, destroy) on the same row: if you click one of the buttons it will act as if you clicked the data to select it. Also, you have not provided any documentation as to how to work around this kind of problem.

                                    • AutooGenerateColumns should support column names with spaces

                                      Just getting started with Kendo Grid - below is my VB.NET razor code (I know, I know) working against a System.Data.DataTable for a model.

                                      The DataTable contains columns in it where some of the ColumnNames have spaces. The web page successfully renders my table, but, it errors due to the Kendo's row template, it seems.

                                      Dim mainGrid = Html.Kendo().Grid(Model.MainTable) _
                                      .Name("Grid") _
                                      .Columns(Sub(cols)
                                      cols.AutoGenerate(True)
                                      End Sub) _
                                      .DataSource(Sub(dSource)
                                      dSource.Ajax()
                                      End Sub) _
                                      .Pageable() _
                                      .Sortable() _
                                      .Filterable()

                                      • Add Cross Site Scripting (XSS) prevention

                                        Concerning Cross Site Scripting (XSS), from the client-side perspective, data coming from any server cannot be trusted, even when it's one of your own servers (which may have been hacked).
                                        While it is true that you need XSS protection on your server, it's certainly not a luxury to have additional protection on the client-side.

                                        The kendo.template() function for example can be extended to filter out any unwanted <script> tags. The following code would do it:

                                        <code>
                                        var kendoTemplate = kendo.template;
                                        kendo.template = function () {
                                        var templateFunction = kendoTemplate.apply(kendoTemplate, arguments);
                                        return function () {
                                        var htmlWithoutScripts = $.parseHTML(templateFunction.apply(templateFunction, arguments));
                                        return…

                                        • Telerik AJAX controls for KendoUI

                                          Look at the Telerik AJAX controls to start implementing in KendoUI as well like the list below. Now some wouldb probably only be used with the server wrapper like Captcha and Zip Library.

                                          - MediaPlayer
                                          - File Manager/Explorer
                                          - Barcode
                                          - Gauge
                                          - Image Editor and Gallery
                                          - Social Share
                                          - Ticker
                                          - Zip
                                          - Captcha
                                          - Etc.....
