        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.

          • In-Place Edit Widget

            Having the ability to do "in-line edits" can sometimes be helpful. Here is a link to a jquery plugin I use often. Perhaps this would be something useful for Kendo.

              Thanks for the idea. To elaborate further, what would make you use Kendo UI-powered inline edit widget as opposed to Jeditable?

              • Checkbox wrapper UI element

                What i think of it is converting checkboxes list into more friendlu UI element. For example we have list of checkboxes with the same name but different key

                Name="checkname[1]"

                and so on. So i set something like

                $(".checkbox[name=Checkname]").kendoCeckboxes()

                Then kendo convert it in to togle buttons. You can set how namy columns for example. And it will convert to something like table with every cell as toggle button and selected options are highlighted. Of course you do not use table html elemnt i just describe idea.

                This will be more friendly as on desktops as on tablets.

                • Allow validation method to be called independently of a form submit event.

                  When working with AJAX it's essential to be able to validate a form on the fly, return errors, and deal with them without needing to actually submit the form. Please make sure the validation library works as a callable method rather than just a form submit event binding.

                  • The template is not so friendly with document db such as MongoDB. Data in MongoDB are schema free, it means some data fields may be missing.

                    The template is not so friendly with document db such as MongoDB. Data in MongoDB are schema free, it means some data fields may be missing. It may lead to an error while rendering templates. jQuery's API can have a optional arg to provide default value, but I don't how to do it in Kendo.

                    • Validation is both a client-side and a server-side issue

                      Please think the Kendo UI validation farmework not only in terms of client-side validation but also in terms of reporting server-side errors.

                      A framework that would only provide a way to display a validation error message based on a client-side rule after each related input field would not be very helpful in my opinion.

                      All errors need to be reported in a consistent way. My preferred option is:
                      - a message box at the top of a form to display all messages including OK messages and error messages (client-side and server-side).
                      - higlighted fields with tooltips (not to clutter the…

                        Thanks for the thorough feedback on validation. It will be conveyed to our devs to be taken into account while developing the validation extensions for the framework.

                        The Book control is great in Silverlight. It may be possible to create a similar control in Kendo

                            • Decorate the autocomplete matching text with an element for styling

                              I'd like to be able to style the matching text from autocomplete, so I'd like the option for kendo to perhaps wrap the text in a span or something I can get a handle on...

                              So if I typed "Back" it'll give me results like this
                              <li><span class='t-match'>Back</span> to the future</li>

                                • Add chunking option to upload widget.

                                  I think, it would by great, to have option to chunk files into smaller pieces. It allows better uploading big files. When using PHP backend, there is max post size restriciton. I think, chunking method is faster etc.

                                      Hi,

                                      We're building a large JS app that uses jQuery templates. When the number of templates got out of hand, I moved it to another HTML page, and did a $.get("templates.html") and appended that to the DOM.

                                      We load each template one by one. We wanted to do parallel loading using something similar to head.js

                                      Maybe you guys can come up with a way of doing it neater. Maybe something like this:

                                      kendo.templates.remote = ['templates1.html', 'templates2.html'];
                                      kendo.ready(function(){ //kick ass! });
