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.
Globalized applications use the DateTimeOffset type instead of DateTime since it includes the offset from UTC for different time zones. If DateTimePicker could bind to this type it would simplify UI development. It would have to have the offset or timezone value provided as either a property or as a second binding.
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
Please think the Kendo UI validation farmework not only in terms of client-side validation but also in terms of reporting server-side errors. A framework that would only provide a way to display a validation error message based on a client-side rule after each related input field would not be very helpful in my opinion. All errors need to be reported in a consistent way. My preferred option is: - a message box at the top of a form to display all messages including OK messages and error messages (client-side and server-side). - higlighted fields with tooltips (not to clutter the form layout) to repeat error messages in context when applicable. Although the framework built into Kendo UI might only provide client-side validation, please make sure to provide entry points into the UI used to report errors. Alternatively, leave the UI to the developer and provide a simple way to collect all validation error messages on a form.
Check out this idea. It may help solve this issue and help with UI presentation. http://feedback.kendoui.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback/suggestions/3767009-treeview-in-combobox
Admin edit: A Knowledge Base article that shows how you can achieve this: https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/knowledge-base/disable-multiselect-items
Suppose a model is defined with settings for editable, required, validation, etc. Then this model is used a datasource's schema. Instances of the datasource's data will be models. However, if a model is bound to some HTML view, it's settings are not applied to the view. All settings have to be manually applied to the HTML elements. I suggest that these settings are applied automatically. Then for example, a field's property like "required" wouldn't have to be coded at two different places.
It would be really nice to have an easy way to dynamically create Kendo Windows in AngularJS. And also with separate controller and template. https://github.com/kjartanvalur/angular-kendo-window Here i´m trying to do this but it would be really good to have a similar way integrated into Kendo. There is also a demo on the repo. http://plnkr.co/edit/6lyrblMhZ5ofuonmGoPZ?p=preview
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.
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
Your silverlight Timebar is Briliant. I suggest you implement something like that(maybe a litle less complex) in KendoUI.
The new funnel in the Q3 release is great, but it looks very flat. It would be great to have a more 3D look.
Personally, I much prefer image buttons over text buttons in the grid just to keep bulk down especially when you have a wide grid or a number of custom command buttons with long text. To do this at present requires some fancy css styling in the grid databound event. I would like to see more configuration options for grid commands to allow for .... - Built-in commands (Edit, Delete, etc) and custom commands to be image only - Built-in commands and custom commands to have a "tooltip" option
Some kind of animation for the splitters when you collapse/expand them? Even nowadays there are people not used to the web environment, and if the collapsible pane just hides instantly (or almost) they will first think 'Where did my *whatever* went!?' so having some kind of easing they would see where did it go.
I have a list view of unassigned users, I can drag and drop from listview into a treeview to assign them to a group node in the treeview. (This works) I need to drag multiple items to the same group node to add more than one person at a time. multiple draggables to one dropTarget.
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.
