Currently, a modal window allows for tabbing out of the window to controls on the page below. See forum posts http://www.telerik.com/forums/tab-key-and-modal-windows http://www.telerik.com/forums/kendo-window-tab-order-and-section-508 On a web app I run into the problem where the dialog is dependent on a grid row to be present, but due to tabbing out of the not so modal window I can delete the applicable grid row removing the context on which the modal window is based. This is a bug.
Currently kendoWindow class publishes a "minimize" event but not the corresponding "restore" event, as far as I can tell. We need to catch the "restore" for our UI case, as follows: The default Minimize action leaves the window width unchanged, and collapses the height to 32 pixels. But we'd like to also shrink the minimized width, in order to further save space. It's easy to do that, via the minimize event, but then getting the original width back upon Restore is a problem - I can't find a straightforward way to do that, because the presence of the Restore button ("k-i-restore" class) is elusive - it isn't present at startup, nor is it found at the end of our custom "onMinimize" method. In the absence of the "restore" event, if anyone can suggest a straightforward way to accomplish the above, we would be grateful.
Right now the only position option I see is center. It would be nice to have greater options for positioning the window in the viewport. I know that most people are fine with center but there are times when my business needs to display a lot of data. The center causes the window header to be center but then the user has to scroll or move the window to the top of the screen. Even just an option like TopCenter() would be enough for me. jQueryUI uses a position that takes strings.
If the close method can accept the parameter object, then we can check if execute our logic in the close event.
I need to call .center() on a kendo window to have it centered on the page. Position and size are already included in the configuration properties of kendo window so it would be logical to include the alignment as well.
We should not lose functionality that the jquery dialog already supports. Keydown is an important aspect in many web apps and right now a user can click the escape button if entering in a bunch of data and it closes out the window.
I am loading content into the window asynchronously and would like to see an event that I can subscribe to that would fire when this content has finished loading.
Allow the toolbar to be docked to the Kendo window at the top under the title or tabstip at the top under the tab, this way the scrolling would keep the toolbar in place and would be always visible for user action
