Category: Kendo UI for jQuery
Type: Feature Request
Basic nice form effect include:text,textarea,checkbox,radio,select,file,button
Maybe CSS3 can do more nice text,textarea,button, but in IE7&8, can not support border-radius,box-shadow,text-shadow, so we must use picture to do this. I want to all the form element seems the same in KendoUI support browsers.
Just like: Uniform,Niceforms,Jquery FormOne,jqTransform,jNice and so on...

Interesting idea, common decoraton of simple html elements as you depicted might be handy.

Update: Note that you can style regular html elements like buttons, textboxes, links, etc. reusing the css definitions used by the Kendo UI widgets. See this help topic for more info:

In case you are searching for this in our ASP.NET MVC server wrappers, see this item:

For simple using, kendo ui has these functionalities. This is also needed for complete styling

Agreed, I would make a lot of sense (and provide a good user experience if all UI controls had a similar theme.)

Immediately I would say the following as a minimum:
Textbox (Already done)
Checkbxes & Radio Buttons
Standard Input Buttons

The issue is that the css classes result in a textbox that looks different than all other auto-complete and comboboxes. As a result it is not a substitute for you guys implementing them. A textbox should look exactly like the auto-complete when done. Further, masking should be added, along with max length, min length etc.

It would be really good and important to change the style of the checkbox and radiobutton when we change the theme. 
The status of this post is STARTED but i cannot see it in the roadmap:

uniform is great. I really like the way it makes select items searchable. That would be super sweet!

I can't believe Kendo doesn't have styling for checkboxes and radio buttons. WTH? Every javascript UI framework I can think of has this, why not kendo? At least offer us some type of alternative, like a how to make these controls look nicer when paired with kendo skinned controls. Telerik has a nice set of controls how can you not do these basic ones?

Yes, but we need it in the Desktop side of things.

Form elements enhancement is already available in Kendo UI Mobile with the Q1'12 release. 
Posted on: 20 Apr 2012 13:10
Yes please! Both Desktop and mobile! All elements should have a Kendo equivalent that automatically styles and configures them.

We also need a good masking control, Dock (XtraLayout style would be even better!), and Scheduling controls. Basically fill out the Kendo UI library with everything you have for MVC and ASP.NET :)

Yes~ I mean the Kendo UI Web need styling for desktop HTML form elements!

This is already in the works for the Kendo UI Mobile suite, i.e. providing enhanced styling for HTML form elements: Do you think we should consider the same for the desktop apps built with Kendo UI Web?

I really really want the nice checkboxes & radio in KendoUI, you already have nice select & file upload, and we can use CSS to style text, textarea & button, but the checkbox & radio is so uglily, I do not want use other plugin to style it. Kendo UI is "The art of ...", this is the base art needs. You can look over “uniform”, it use “opacity” to hide the real element, but you click the real one in fact, it's the smart way to style this to element.

Brilliant. Currently I'm suing jqtransform to style my checkboxes, radios, and drop select boxes. I would LOVE to see this built into kendo. You can already style the select boxes, but the checkboxes and radio buttons are lacking in Kendo.
