  1. custom date format in (editable) grid column

    When you configure a grid date-column with a custom format, the value configured in 'format' is parsed using JSON.parse. This requires the use of double quotes for both keys and values.

    var a = "{0:dd/MMMM/yyyy}"; // example from docs
    JSON.parse(a); // SyntaxError: JSON.parse: expected property name or '}'

    var b = '{"0":"dd-MM-yyyy"}';
    JSON.parse(b); // jey!

    However, if you use the latter, the generated template goes fubar with the message:

    "Invalid template:' ... <td>${kendo.format("{"0":"dd-MM-yyyy"\}",theDataField)}</td> ... "

    This makes sense when you look at the quote mismatch..

      • Add Additional Marker Types and/or Support for Custom Marker Images

        It would be nice if the charts supported more marker types. Currently only circles, triangles and squares are supported. This poses a problem when you have more than 3 series and want to show distinct markers for each series. I suggest adding support for a cross and star. It would also be nice to support custom marker images.

        • Add coverflow support

          It would be great if we could easily build a coverflow experience that matches what you have in your siliverlight components or what Apple does with iTunes

            We do have a rotator widget in mind for the forthcoming versions of Kendo UI Web. We may conceive exposing modes for it (coverflow, rotator, carousel) to cover wider set of scenarios.

          • Images in Grid Columns Header

            Grid should allow to place images in the header of each column instead of text on per column basis.

            • Allow validator error messages to be reset from the api

              I use a common form to bind data objects to. I also perform validation on this form. If I validate the form through a submit and it fails (validate() returns false), I close the window and then rebind with the same or a different object (from a grid or some datasource). When the window comes back up, the validator messages are still there from the last failed submit. I need a way to clear them. I could call validate on the rebind, but I want to clear them, not reevaluate them (as there could be some that come up...especially when…

              • A dashboard/webpart/widget controls

                It would be great to have such controls as webparts/widgets to place in a dashboard where we could move them around the screen to reorder how data is presented with option to save/retrieve the layout from a persistent source.

                In the dashboard the functionality would be to define a layout where we could add/remove, change position the widgets (like in dropthings or pageflakes). The widgets would contain controls like Kendo Grid or DataViz controls to display information.

                That would be a killer feature.

                  What you describe here is rather a stand-alone BI product which allows you to model dashboard-like interfaces and utilizes Kendo UI widgets.

                  We will keep this idea in mind, and explore further possibilities.

                  For now your option is to utilize our AppBuilder IDE (http://www.telerik.com/appbuilder) and the DataViz template project with its Visual Designer for DataViz widgets. Thus the developers can customize the application interface visually via drag and drop.

                  Another option might be to make use of our sortable widget for this purpose, if applicable. See this demo for reference:

                  http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/sortable/sortable-panels

                • in menu widget each item should gets its down callback function or at least an easy value to find out what item got selected. Text not enoug

                  its not very easy and transparent to find out what menu item was clicked and what function is to be executed. A simple callback reference would be most convenient. Or at least a simple value to compare. Other advantage is that in case of international translations the code is not impacted

                      Lightbox widget will be deliberated for the future releases of the Kendo UI Web suite.

                    • Support for changing min max value of slider

                      Please provide support of changing min and max value of slider since this is a good way to avoid selecting invalid data. We have business rule that currently must set these values, but unfortunatly the slider does not get redrawn.

                      • Selecting rows in Grid

                        Add the ability to select grid rows by providing data objects from a viewmodel instead of specifying html/css selectors.

                        For example:

                        var myGrid = $('#myGrid').data('kendoGrid');
                        myViewModel.Items.forEach(function(item) { myGrid.select(item); });

                        • Web Service Javascript Proxy generator(JSON and SOAP)

                          Visual Studio plugin to generate javascript proxy classes for communicating with web services.

                          Normally in ASP.Net the .Net proxy classes would be generated for me, but since I am now moving towards building RIA applications most of the WS calls now take place client side. The process of manually setting up service calls is a bit cumbersome so if KendoUI could include a tool for this it would be great.

                            • Splitter easing animation

                              Some kind of animation for the splitters when you collapse/expand them?
                              Even nowadays there are people not used to the web environment, and if the collapsible pane just hides instantly (or almost) they will first think 'Where did my *whatever* went!?' so having some kind of easing they would see where did it go.

                              • Add support for VoiceOver on iOS

                                I've experimented with the Kendo UI on my iPad, with the VoiceOver feature enabled and some of the widgets work well, but not all do.
                                Adding support for VoiceOver would add a huge level of accessibility to our apps.

                                  • Add multiple date selection & more events to Calendar

                                    Add a multiple date selection to the Calendar. A multiple date selection calendar is very important for professional web applications in many situations. Also, there is a lack of events in the API.
                                    It is always important to provide more events then less.

                                    Here a few suggestions:
                                    Property year; /// Year displayed by control.
                                    Property month; /// Month (1 to 12) displayed by control.
                                    A method in the API to easily get the selected date(s).

                                    An option to indicate if we allow/disallow multi-selection.

                                      • Adding custom css setting for column in kendoGrid

                                        It's a common scenario to set custom css on <td> for specific column, for example, using columns: { field: "ScoreNumber", css: "right-align", title: "Score" } to get <td class='right-align'>, then I can make every every score field text-align: right.

                                        Maybe adjusting _tmpl: in Grid Widget as
                                        rowTemplate += "<td" + (column.css ? " class='" + column.css + "'" : "") + ">"; is a easy way to accomplish it.

                                          It would be nice to have the possiblity to toggle edit mode on and off for the Grid.

                                            We will monitor the interest in your proposition. For now you may consider disabling the editing option in each fo the rows on demand programmatically.
