    • captcha

      I'm using kendo ui for mvc and a control that could be very useful is a captcha for form submission.For sure you can integrate it by using Google reCaptcha in a easy way not only for kendo ui for web but for mvc also.A good idea could be to integrate you own captcha control (for intranet environment, or private internet network ) because reCaptcha only work with a stable internet connection (Google Web Service).

      • Add .k-i-minus style for normal size icons (since there is .k-si-minus for small ones)

        It's obvious enough. I made normal size buttons with plus/minus functionality but there is no "minus" icon now.

        • More positioning options for window

          Right now the only position option I see is center. It would be nice to have greater options for positioning the window in the viewport. I know that most people are fine with center but there are times when my business needs to display a lot of data. The center causes the window header to be center but then the user has to scroll or move the window to the top of the screen. Even just an option like TopCenter() would be enough for me. jQueryUI uses a position that takes strings.

          • Create auto magically a Form UI if i pass it a model.

            I hate to create or have hardcoded ui in my view.
            Similiar with what Silverlight does with the dataform ,if i bind my form to a model for each property in my model Kendo could create the label and the right input field on the ui.

            • Provide a <button> style on focus, right now you can't tell when tabbing to a button

              Try tabbing through a form with a bunch of inputs and tabbing onto a button at the end. Although it works you can't tell because the button doesn't indicate the focus!

              • DataSource Model separately DataSourcable

                The DataSource Model including validation should come from the server and not defined within javascript where possible. There should be two primary ways to populate the model using the DataSource widget.

                1.) Retrieved from the DataSource call itself as a JSON property off of the data call. You should be able to define a schema: { parseModel: function(data) { return data.model } } to retrieve the model directly from the data call.

                2.) You should be able to specify the schema: { model: new DataSource({ ... }) }. The model itself should be DataSourcable so you can retrieve (with ETag/Last-Modified…

                  add a No Records template option to the Mobile Listview to handle scenarios where a datasource is empty - without having to wire in additional special logic to deal with this (common) scenario

                    • Provide default mode for Kendo Mobile

                      Provide default mode for Kendo Mobile.

                      When working in kendo mobile web applications, give the user the ability to specify a default or fallback render mode if iOS, blackberry, or droid are not found.

                      Implement it much in the same way you implement the platform application property but instead of saying use this platform for all render modes, this property would equate to saying use this mode IF none of the other supported modes within Kendo Mobile are not found.

                      This also would be good for future development as you add render modes we could response with our "default" style.

                      • PanelBar control needs "FillSpace" property

                        Originally jQuery UI accordion control has such property for filling free space of parent control and stretching appropriate accordion item to fill this space. Will be really nice to have this functionality in KendoUI PanelBar control. For now the workaround is to calculate space and set it trough JavaScript which is really naive solution.

                        • Integrate validation into MVVM

                          It should be possible to specify a validate() method on each viewmodel that gets triggered each time a new model value is .set(). In case of an unsuccessful validation an error event or binding could be triggered.

                          • Fix a new grid multi-sort

                            Right now there are two options for sorting, single and multi-column. We would very much like to use the multisort version, however our users fail to understand the functionality. We suggest a new setting, "ctrl-multisort":

                            Single-sort when clicking and multi-sort when ctrl-clicking, similair to most desktop grid controls.

                            • Allow Javascript expressions and function calls in MVVM bindings

                              Currently Kendo MVVM only supports a very simple binding syntax, one view attribute can be bound to one model attribute. I'd like to have real javascript expressions or function calls in bindings to support more complex scenarios, e.g. you only want to show the "submit" button in a form when all fields have been completed.

                              KnockOutJS supports this: http://knockoutjs.com/documentation/visible-binding.html#note_using_functions_and_expressions_to_control_element_visibility

                                • Kendo window restriction to specified area or parent

                                  Windows should be able to be contained or restricted to a specific area. This can either be using parameters or by containing it to a parent object/DIV.

                                  Reasons:

                                  Windows can be dragged anywhere on the browser document and when maximized they take up the entire document. This is a problem if you have an area of the document that you always want to have visible. In my example, I have a toolbar at the top of the screen 25px high and I would like the windows to never move into that area so that it is always accessible.

                                    This feature is tentative for the next major release, R1 2017.

                                  • Code Formatter for Editor

                                    It would be nice to have a code-formatter like the one in the MVC Extensions, or even an easy way to plug-in an open source code formatter into the Editor.

                                    • Bar Char baseline label positions (bottom, top) when both -ve and +ve values

                                      It would be great if there are customization of categoryAxis label when ploting has both +ve and -ve values.
                                      The label need to be settled down at bottom (base line) automatically when there are negative values and same for +ve values.

                                      • Legend Mouse Hover - Highlight Series in Chart

                                        When hovering over a chart legend item, it would be nice if the underlying series/data item in the chart could be highlighted in a similar way as when the mouse is over the series/data item.
