I think it would be more helpful if the Kendo UI Documentation is structured similarly to other Telerik Product Documentations where each control (widget) provides a complete overview, visual structure, getting started, and a how-to section (which I'm guessing is a compiled list of frequently asked scenarios).  I'm struggling/spending too much time having to research how to do (what should be) the simplest things with these widgets.  It seems that' I'm having to revert to the Demo's and online threads more than the documentation.. that' can't be good!

ANY improvement in the docs would be welcome.

I agree.  What would be great, would be a mini-site for each Kendo UI element which clearly shows all the documentation.  For example:

Validator
- Overview
- Configuration
- Demos
- Forum threads
- Code library
- Issues
- Stack overflow

Instead what we have is validator documenation in different parts of the site:
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/validator/overview - located under "Framework and Utilities - Validator - Overview"
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/validator#methods-validateInput - located under "API Reference - Javascript - Ui - Validator"
http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/validator/angular - not referenced in the above menus.
http://www.telerik.com/forums/kendo-ui/validation - link only appears in the footer for the above link but not for the first two
http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/kendo-ui/validator - as above
https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue - not linked anywhere (as far as I know)
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/kendo-ui

All this makes it very difficult to make sure you have read all the relevant documentation and seen the examples.  I am also sure there is a link to your bug tracking system which people ought to be aware of.

These comments can equally apply to any of the Kendo UI elements.

Thank you for the feedback. I will forward it to our documentation writers to have it in mind for future online documentation updates.
