    • PanelBar orientation (vertical, horizontal)

      On the panelBar I want to set orientation to horizontal. This would make many nice design oppertunities.

      • Enable the reloading of remote views

        There may be cases where you need to fully refresh / reload a remote view after CRUD operations instead of amending the data in the view via ajax / jquery.

        In my case I had already built an application and hoped I could plugin Kendo Mobile UI for a mobile version, but have ended up having to change the way the application works to use the Datasource component.

        So if purging loaded remote views cache is something that may be considered for future releases, that would be great.

        • Allow custom complex MVVM bindings

          As of today, it is possible to create custom "simple" bindings as per this code sample:

          http://demos.kendoui.com/web/mvvm/custom.html

          This works fine, but it would be appreciated to be able to create custom bindings with "complex" syntax, such as this:

          data-bind="foo: {condition: somePropertyOnViewModel, option1: A, option2: B }"

          • Provide a syntax to "navigate" MVVM models

            In the context of MVVM bindings, it would be great to have a way to evaluate certain conditions/expressions, especially within template bindings, by "navigating" to other properties of the ViewModel, or to other properties of the currently iterated object.

            For example:

            <ul data-role="listview" data-bind="source: anObservableObject" data-template="some-template"></ul>
            <script id="some-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
            <li data-bind="text: whatever, visible: $source.someProperty == $data.otherProperty"></li>
            </script>

            In this example, $data refers to the current iteration data, and $source refers to the source. So the visible binding would be true/false according to the expression which would evaluate an arbitrary property on the source and an arbitrary property on the iterated…

            • Sorting as standard method for TreeView

              I am using TreeView and many other Kendoui HTML controls in my WebPart and I am finding it very fast and good looking, just I am facing only issue while sorting the nodes because I am creating HTML element ul dynamically with multiple nodes and then applying KendoUITreeView()
              Please provide sort as standard method on TreeView.

              • Prevent paging/sorting/filtering when cells have been edited

                With a batch edit grid, it would be nice to have the ability to cancel a data operation if cells have been edited. Currently if the user edits some cells and then does a filter or paging operation before they save their changes, there is no way to warn them and prevent the operation from taking place. So they will lose their changes. Ideally, I'd like to have an event that fires before the read() operation is called on the datasource which would allow the read to be cancelled.

                  I reckon I understand your idea.

                  Do you think that a command event exposed through the grid API (where you can somehow determine the command that is about to be fired) can help in this scenario? Thus wiring this event can give you the needed trigger to execute your custom logic.

                  Let us know.

                • Tooltips and background images/borders for Gauges

                  Add tooltips and background images/borders to the Gauges.

                  The current way of setting the background image using CSS works but is somewhat complex.

                  Setting a border on the gauge does not surround the shape of the gauge, but rather results in a square. Allow a border around the gauge's physical shape (for example, in a half circle radial gauge, the border is around the half circle), or some nicer built-in backgrounds/borders.

                  • Please allow Headers map to be added to transport for DataSource

                    Something like this:

                    transport: {
                    read: "http://localhost/SentryWebAPI/api/Transactions",
                    datatype: "json",
                    headers: { Authorization: "user/password" }
                    },

                    NOTE: This syntax actually works now but does not get propagated with the HTTP request Headers.

                    I think this would be a simple fix as JQuery.$ajax supports this. It would make custom transport level security possible. There are a lot of requests for security and this would allow a roll-your-own method.

                        • Loading Animation Min Duration

                          If my callback takes 10ms or 300ms I still get the control whiting itself out and showing a loading animation. Problem though is if it takes 10ms it looks like the control is flickering.

                          Let me set a min duration before the animation shows up. So I could say only show the loading animation if it's taking longer than 100ms.

                                Please add horizontal navigation with arrow keys when the grid area is smaller than the container window and there are scrollbars. See demo here: http://jsfiddle.net/epqR4/. The vertical navigation with arrows works fine, but horizontal does not.

                                  • Column alignment property for grid/list columns

                                    Right aligned columns are common for number fields and it would be nice to simply set a property in HTML and/or the view-model:
                                    E.g { "field": "amount", "align": "right", "title": "Amount", "width": "110" }

                                      This can be a useful enhancement for the grid widget columns, we may conveive it for a future version.

                                    • Auto-Impliment ASMX Handling

                                      In the datasource can you give us a property which will tell the DS that it needs to stringify the parameters so I don't have to keep googling this syntax?
                                      parameterMap: function (options) {
                                      return kendo.stringify(options); // kendo.stringify serializes to JSON string
                                      }

                                      So just like read: { stringifyParams:true ...}

                                      • Menu - Allow full control over click and hover events

                                        Kendo UI is so customizable, which is why I'm transitioning away from DHTMLX, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile. The Menu currently allows some control over click events, but I think, in keeping with Kendo's current customization options, full control over click and hover events would be a great thing to have.

                                        I was able to mock this by commenting out 1 line of code, so to add as a configure option, this should be pretty easy to implement.

                                        • Create a graph visualization widget

                                          It would be nice to be able to display data visually - basic network graphs using layouts such as Hyperbolic tree and Radial tree.

                                            Thank you for sharing this idea. It will be mulled for future releases of the DataViz suite.
