Add the ability to disable buttons
It would be nice if you could add a disabled state for k-button.  That way, we don't have to hide the buttons from the users to force them to enter some information before clicking a button.

I will forward your suggestion to the product team, looks quite reasonable.

By the way, is applying the k-state-disabled style to disabled buttons dynamically applicable for your scenarios? Here's some more info about the css styles used by the Kendo UI widgets:

Update: Since this functionality produces the desired outcome for buttons and there are no objections, I am closing this entry.

You can wrap the button nicely in your own.  I've done this very thing with images making a nice little api for image buttons:

    $.fn.p1pCommandButton = function (clickHandler) {
        var btn = {};
        var isEnabled = true;
        var self = this;

        btn.disable = function () {
            isEnabled = false;

        btn.enable = function () {
            isEnabled = true;

        $(this).click(function () {
            if (isEnabled) {

        $(this).data('p1pCommandButton', btn);
        return btn;

Is it possible to delete a row in Kendo grid ? I hardly found any example :(

I second David's comment regarding all widgets.

Meaningful suggestion, will take it into account for future versions.

It would be nice if a disable() and enable() method were available to all widgets
