  1. Fix touch drag and drop on Chrome 56+.

    Chrome 56 has a breaking change that impacts Kendo's drag and drop widget: https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2017/01/scrolling-intervention
    The fix seems trivial - a CSS rule like "div[data-role=draggable] { touch-action: none; }".

      • SASS Default v2 theme is too low-contrast

        In the new SASS Default v2 theme, you took away too much contrast compared to the original default theme. Why? Don't you know that many people find it hard to read things where the text color is too close in value to the color of the background color?? Please stop with the very low contrast.

              • 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…

                • Improve the search in tree view- partial string plus other node data

                  Add the ability to search for partial text in tree view as well as search for other properties not just by name or UID. When searching, often times you are doing so without remembering exact names or UID. Exact match is pretty much useless in this case. Also being able to search for other properties of the nodeData would be extremely helpful. For example, I have an item type property which I would like to search on.

                  • Add Sorting to Kendo UI PivotGrid

                    You really need to add sorting to your Kendo UI pivotgrid for flat/local data sources. The entire point of a pivot grid is to analyze data. We did a POC with it for our salesmen. The feedback was: "It's almost useless if I can't sort it and see my top and bottom sellers, etc...". So, we're swapping out the pivotgrid for Infragistics Ignite UI. It's a shame too, cause most everything else is there.

                    • Allow rowTemplate to reference alt as a template parameter, rather than needing altRowTemplate

                      Right now kendo's system for alternating rows is to specify rowTemplate and altRowTemplate. For any non-trivial row template, this makes for a big ugly DRY violation as you copypaste the entire template just to give it a different css class and leave it otherwise identical. Any future changes to the template have to be made to both copies, and any potential template issues have to be tested on both even and odd numbered rows.

                      If rowTemplate received whether it's an alternate row as a template parameter, it would be easy to do common things on alternating rows without ever needing…

                      • Initialize spreadsheet based on schema/DataViewModel when instantiated with an empty datasource

                        Can the Spreadsheet widget be updated to initialize a sheet that is bound to a datasource when the datasource is an empty object?

                        Generally, when a sheet is bound to a datasource, it is for the purpose of editing data, creating new rows and updating/deleting existing rows. If a datasource comes back empty, the sheet isn't initialized. So there are no column headers, which can be confusing to users when they don't know what data to enter in which columns. The other thing is that the sheet itself is not fully initialize so that even if we assign column headers…

                              • Generic Control methods

                                Currently there does not seem to be a way to get a reference to all kendo controls within a specified element or otherwise and perform generic operations on them.

                                I would propose you be able to call a JQuery method and do such things as the following:

                                $(.kendoControlClass').each(function () {
                                $(this).getKendoControl.enable();
                                });

                                or call methods on specific type of controls

                                $(.kendoControlClass-selectable').each(function () {
                                $(this).getKendoControl.clearSelection();
                                });

                                  In some applications data will be so huge to load on PivotGrid, and the manipulation of filtering, reordering and changing dimensions between rows and columns take a long time, freezering the browser for a moment. With data paging this frozen time is avoided.

                                  • Add displayName to models for localization/validation

                                    All controls which work with Models (validation/grid etc) should recognize displayName instead of field name to allow localization.

                                    Model.define({
                                    fields: {
                                    Description: { type: "string", displayName: "Beschreibung", validation: { required: true, maxlength: 200 } },
                                    Number: { type: "number", validation: { min: 0, max: 300 } }
                                    }
                                    });

                                    • 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.

                                      • give more control over chart title

                                        We may place legend on custom offsets - no such option for title - only top and bottom. Give us more granular control over it and make option to place it on top or behind visualized dataItems. Will give watermark like effect
