Type: Feature Request
Confirm/Alert widgets or window widget modes
KendoUI has window widget, but it's too simple, I suggest just like jbox or artDialog.

Are there plans to make the Dialog widget responsive?

I wrote my own in a couple hours last spring with a deferred object. Glad you finally implemented this.

We released a brand new dialog widget -

FYI: I've been using John's KendoUI-Extended for a few years and it is still working for me with 2016.2.504.
I use Alert and YesNo dialogs extensively.

Developing a stable cross-browser solution for confirm/alert dialogs is a bit cumbersome and would take time to implement, Drew. 

If the solution posted by John doesn't work with the latest releases, you can either ask him to update it or request assistance from our support team at to get an updated version of the sample code.

John DeVight's code is from April 2013 and blows exceptions.

I use kendo ui modal windows all over but for a simple delete confirm, javascript confirm pops up. This should take one developer a day to get this in alpha form. Why is this still mulled over since 2013, three years and counting?

This is still on hold due to various items with higher priorities, Larissa. Hope that the interim solution provided by John DeVight below is applicable for you.

Can believe the framework is missing this feature! Something this basic should have being release on the first version. And yet not done.

I updated the link, Adrian. It was indeed broken, sorry for the temporary inconvenience. The ModalView is still present in Kendo UI and applicable.
Posted on: 24 Jan 2016 18:02
@Admin: The link you posted does is dead and the demos section does not seem contain any mention of a ModalView control. Is this still your suggested workaround?

As someone already said, "having to hack around in the wild defeats the purpose of paying for a framework". I totally agree: a professional (and commercial) framework like Kendo UI needs and deserves a widget like this. I think something just like SweetAlert ( should be appropriate.

I agree with Denis and James, I would really like to have convenience methods for easily creating confirm/alert popups. I miss these now that I use Kendo UI in place of the UI for ASP.NET AJAX library.

We required footer in kendo window same as the way you are providing the header.I think it is not possible in current version.It will be helpful if you provide in next versions

Having a simple PnP method of displaying common elements such as Alert or Confirm and an easy to use custom dialog (with simply configured buttons/actions) would be a tremendous help.
Posted on: 08 Apr 2015 22:11
I don't see how the Modal View Widget would help. The point is to have a PnP way of displaying confirmation dialogues. Think of a new option for the Window widget called "buttons" that works akin to "actions" and accepts parameters like "OK", "Cancel", "Yes", "No", etc, clicking on which fire a function that tells the developer which button was clicked on.

Guys, can you reply to the comment I left in this thread? Is the proposed alternative applicable for you?

It's 2015 and still missing this feature. :(

This is a must have feature!

yes, please implement.  having to hack around in the wild defeats the purpose of paying for a framework.

Yes, I was wondering the same, why this doesn't exist yet. They are trying to include all the advanced features to make complete HTML toolkit but lacking these basic ones?

@John DeVight

I tried but almost half things didn't work. Unfortunately it seems like you've already abandoned the project.
Posted on: 01 Mar 2014 23:25
Come on guys do this already. This should have been included from the beginning. Don't let us wander to find or code our own, beats the purpose of having Kendo UI.
Posted on: 28 Aug 2013 16:55
Let's get these implemented!! Very useful.. thanks
Posted on: 07 Aug 2013 02:12
And allowing the inclusion of other Kendo UI widgets... for UI consistency !...

How come this doesn't exists yet ???!!!

Take a look at the "Kendo UI Extended API" Library at:

It has support for Alert, Input, OK/Cancel, Yes/No and Wait dialogs.

Helper Window-related extensions that introduce popup dialogs, consistent with the theme and allowing content localization.
