  1. List View Batch Editing

    Since grid view support batch editing in client side (without postback). It would be good if List View could support batch editing in client side without postback as well. It will allow lesser server side calling.

      • Make Widgets independent of the Font Size

        Currently, if a page's font size is just a little bit larger (for example 14px), some widgets do not display correctly. Sometimes the images alignment is wrong, sometimes borders do not fit. As an example, look at...

        http://www.kendoui.com/forums/ui/general-discussions/widget-display-with-changed-font-size.aspx

        With frameworks like Bootstrap it is quite common that the font size is not too small. So currently it means work to use Kendo and Bootstrap together,

        I suggest you either improve the widgets' rendering so they do not rely on a certain font size. Or another solution would be if each customer could create a specific CSS from the LESS by…

          • Allow labels to be applied to plotbands

            As they are, plotbands are meaningless. There should be a facility to attach a permanent label or at least a tooltip to the plotband areas.

                • Allow a grid column's groupHeaderTemplate to be set via data attributes.

                  The groupHeaderTemplate property for a column can only be set if initializing a grid and defining columns via javascript.

                  The following post describes the issue and the area that requires modification (Grid._columns):

                  • Tooltip offset

                    Please allow us to set tooltip offsets, so I whatever value you calculate it to be shown at I can "push" it off further.

                    Also please append a class showing of the location of the tooltip (top, bottom, left, right) to help us style appropriatly.

                    • Option to make Menu Action Ajax enabled

                      An action that would work just like the MVC @Ajax.ActionLink with the AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId , HttpMethod , InsertionMode }

                      Which adds the data-ajax attributes to the anchor tag:

                      Example:
                      data-ajax="true" data-ajax-method="Get" data-ajax-mode="replace" data-ajax-update="#AjaxContent"

                      • make dropdowns open on mousedown, not click/mouseup

                        Best practice dictates that dropdowns open on mousedown, such that that user can press, move to the desired item, and release all in one movement. You'll of course find this behaviour across many apps and OS's, including MS Office, Windows and OSX. Sadly, Kendo UI dropdowns open on mouseup/click, rather than mousedown, which means the user has to do two clicks to get to what they want. For heavy-usage applications, this is a big pain for users, and definitely affects usability.

                        • Allow a menu to be defined with split buttons

                          Split buttons would allow to have a menu item that target a specific page and at the same time have sub items. It is possible to do it with the current version however it only works with mouse devices, the split button would provide the same functionality for touch devices.

                          • Use fully semantic HTML to support mobile and browser native functionality

                            I know you have special tag structure so that you can implement certain features. However, for UI elements like the drop-down, numeric input and date-picker, it would be really great to use (or have an alternative control to us) native html elements and data- attributes that are easily recognized by mobile devices and newer, desktop browsers. For example, for the drop-down, it would be great for it to render a select so that when received by a mobile device, the native option selector can take over. I am posting this in the Web controls for those of us creating responsive…

                                • Hyperlink upgrade for tel and mailto

                                  For the editor, I would like to suggest an upgrade to "Insert hyperlink". It would be great if you would split out the prefix from the address and have a selector that allows the user to choose website, email, or phone.

                                  Address:sales@kendoui.com

                                  Tooltip: Click Here
                                  Open Link in new window: No

                                  • Allow text input for Height and Width of MVC controls

                                    Currently for the Window and Tooltip controls (possibly others, but those are the ones that I'm working with), the Height and Width properties are both integer properties which set the height and width in pixels. I would like the ability to be able to enter Height and Width in 'em' units, much like can be done with the grid column widths.

                                    • Intelligent DataViz Pie Chart label positioning

                                      You can currently set series labels to position "center" on the pie chart to get them to render on the slices, but sometimes slices are too small to contain these labels. It would be great if there were an option for the chart to detect when a slice is too small and render the label outside the chart, while still rendering labels on pie slices that are big enough to contain them.

                                      • allow boolean field that will only show editor for grid column

                                        Right now if you want to only show the editor for a column (eg bool field) you have to override the client template among other things and if you want to do it for many fields it can take a lot of code to accomplish. It would be nice if there were a way to just specify for kendo to only show the editor for the field.

                                        • Support binding of DateTimePicker to type DateTimeOffset

                                          Globalized applications use the DateTimeOffset type instead of DateTime since it includes the offset from UTC for different time zones. If DateTimePicker could bind to this type it would simplify UI development. It would have to have the offset or timezone value provided as either a property or as a second binding.
