Kendo UI mobile widgets are really falling behind and now need an urgent refresh. Most mobile widgets have not been updated in 3 to 4 years (https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/tree/master/src).
The most urgent is for styles to be updated to match LESS and SASS styles. Currently, styles are a mess and making a mobile app including the grid and other recent responsive widgets with consistent styles takes a lot more time than it should:
- NOVA has many specificities not available in other themes
- OS skins have no match to style the grid and other web responsive widgets
- Material UI is not consistent and up-to-date
Kendo UI supports PDF export. It would be great if you could add glyph mirroring support to it as well (https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/blob/master/src/core/bidi.js). PDF export of RTL languages such as Arabic and Persian need this trick to work properly.
Allow creation of custom labels that can be placed any where on the chart surface using x, y coordinates.
Support for injecting some custom header information in the export PDF and Excel? e.g. You are exporting some grid to excel or pdf and you want do display the search parameters in the header of the document.
Extend "filterable" to match the datasource's "filter" (singular, not "filters") configuration option.
Please see 'Subject' line the <div> resizing didn't work as advertised and the splitter itself resizes to '0px'
It would be really nice to have slide out panels or drawers (not the same as the existing mobile drawer, but similar). The demo below shows a good example (left, right and top). http://responsivewebinc.com/premium/sheldon/sheldonadmin/index.html
The new funnel in the Q3 release is great, but it looks very flat. It would be great to have a more 3D look.
It would be a great help if there was a way to add a Trendline to a line chart in the DataViz collection. This function is available in excel and other similar programs. The wiki page explains: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trend_line_%28technical_analysis%29
A heatmap (grid-style at least) is very much useful in any decent project management application. A widget that could remotely connect color-shades to jSON data would be really great.
kendo.mobile.ui.Loader: It would be helpful to get a configuration option to define an own loader or to provide a set of different loaders (including the well known simple "turning wheel").
For a column chart, both the column and its (optional) label can be clicked and wired up with seriesClick. However, the cursor only turns into a pointer (hand) when hovering over the column; it does not do this for the label above, even though it's active. I'd like this to be consistent, and thus have hovering over the label turn the cursor into a pointer as well.
Add a way to keep the highlight in list view - useful in split view so that it's clearly visible which item is selected (to be consistent to iOS, e.g. Mail app)
I would love to see this happen in the next release! The hacks out there work, but we're still forced to use the Select2 library to do this well. We want to use Kendo for the whole project.
Once created, many Kendo components root DOM element are wrapped under new HTML elements. Any class of the original input will also be copied to some parent elements. As each widget (DateTimePicker, DropDownList, ComboBox...) are wrapped differently, it might be a good idea to add a class to the root input (k-root) that would allow us to search for that specific input. See this post for more details: http://www.kendoui.com/forums/ui/general-discussions/best-way-to-find-the-root-element-by-class.aspx
