    • Menu is detached and always on top

      Have the menu act the same as a DropDown with detached Popup which lives in the document.body so it can expand over splitters and other things that hide the menu expansion.

        • Built in PDF Viewer control for Both Kendo UI and Kendo UI Mobile

          It would be nice to have a built in PDF viewer control in the Kendo UI and Kendo UI Mobile. Especially Mobile so we do not have to search the net for decent controls that may or may not work for the different devices.

          • add cross-page checkbox selection to grid

            include checkbox-based selection in the grid and allow the persisting of selections in paginated grid (i.e. user selects rows on page 1, switches to page 2, returns to page 1 --> previous selection is restored)

              Thanks for propounding this feature, we will weigh the interest for the time being.

            • Server Rendering for Templates

              Add Server-side rendering engines for templates. I would love them in .Net first and then php and then Ruby. Having server side is huge for SEO and with a rendering engine could basically take a huge chunk of server code out of the mix and just replace with templates.

              • DataViz support for empty data sets

                I'm building an app that is using DataViz for charting but there are scenarios where it's possible to *not* have any data returned to map out in the chart.

                I'd like to be able to:
                - Set an X and Y axis value so the plot area is displayed
                - Provide either a message, a function or a DOM element which will be displayed over the chart

                Here's a snippet of how I think the API could expose it:

                $('#chart').kendoChart({
                noData: {
                seriesMax: 100,
                category: 'Some category',
                message: 'No data!' || function () { return 'No Data!' } || $('.no-data-message') …

                  Presently the chart will display the axes when no data is available, without empty data message. I will log your request for future consideration, for now you can output the message in a div and position it over the chart.

                • Integration with JetBrains Webstrom

                  WebStorm 3.0 is the coolest JavaScript IDE at this point in time and I think its the best complement for Kendo client development. It can be also seen by many developers as perfect statement of Declaration of Independence from Microsoft on behalf of Telerik!

                  • Integration with Play framework

                    Play framework is probably the fastest growing framework in the Java space due to its container-less deployment and non-blocking IO features.
                    I think its an ideal vehicle for Kendo/Kendo MVVM to visit Java land for the first time!
                    Normally this means adopting logic-less mustache templating (see https://github.com/pk11/play-scalate/) but other options may exist.

                      Thanks for the suggestion, Dimitris.

                      Right now you could try testing out Telerik UI for JSP (http://www.telerik.com/jsp-ui) with Scalate. However, I’m not sure if this would work, though. Please comment below if you do that.

                      1. Time Pie - A small circle not unlike a pie chart, with the full 24 hour cycle around its perimeter. Example: http://oakland.crimespotting.org/

                      2. Calendar Week Bar Chart - A bar chart associated to the calendar week. Example: http://oakland.crimespotting.org/

                        Thanks for voicing your idea. For now we are focused on other data vizualization components like gauges (planned for the next release), sparklines, more chart types, etc.

                      • provide css/widget for simple box (raddock)

                        Like k-textbox and k-button css provided with kendoUI - I would like to have it extended for simple box with title, expand collapse button etc. This may be more like [Group] control in winforms. so we can group the controls and enable/disable it as needed.

                          Thanks for posting this proposal. We will gauge the interest in it and sync our plans in accordance with it.

                        • Merge Kendo UI with already existing Telerik for asp.net ajax.

                          I confess that I got surprised after checking Component One "Studio for ASP.NET Wijmo"! They already have super fast controls based on jQuery UI with support for ThemeRoller, and supporting client and server side operations. Why did you decide to go for the client side approach?! Also, the controls work really fast and have nice widgets like differente types of galleries. I hope Telerik decides to go this way with Kendo UI.

                          • Google-Like odata autocomplete

                            When bound to oData, the autocomplete contains filter should treat each WORD as a new "substringof"....or make a new odata advanced contains type\property.

                            This is more what users expect when searching...and the odata spec has it covered.

                            • Provide more client control over colors/shading of Chart items

                              The current set of Kendo DataViz components are pretty nice but it'd be great to have more control over the colors/shading of chart items. This is more important for interactive charts where a user might click on an item, and then a small snippet of code would re-fresh a sibling chart to show more detailed data, etc. Visually you'd want to highlight the currently selected item (similar to the piechart Explode option) with a different color/shade.

                              • Crop and resize gui widget for images

                                At typical usecase for web applications is to let the user upload and image (portrait, avatar, picutre of real estate etc.) and then resize and crop it to a specific contrain.

                                An easy widget for handling the cropping and resizing might come handy for many.

                                There are solution for cropping and also resizing in jquery plugins already, however a successful and pretty combo of the two seems to lack a bit.

                                Inspiration:

                                        We will keep an eye on the interest of Venn diagrams with drag and drop support and based on it will contemplate their inclusion in the Kendo UI suite.

                                      • Dynamically creating Kendo windows

                                        Please allow for the dynamic creation of kendo windows (straight from javascript) that don't require you to have an existing element to attach the window to (or having to manually create div's in the DOM). Telerik.Window has a name property that sets the ID of the window so one can create windows easier by calling $.telerik.window.create({}) and set the name/id there. Kendo currently doesn't have that functionality. Why can't Kendo.Window do the same - either attach itself to an existing element like it currently does or if a unique name is given and no matching element with the same ID,…

                                            Thank you for the suggestion. We will consider covering this resizing behavior that with the Kendo UI panelbar widget, if not supported already.
