Replace the current implementation of ObservableObject/ObservableArray with the new js features Object.observe/Array.observe.
As discussed here: http://www.kendoui.com/forums/framework/mvvm/min-max-bindings-for-datepicker-and-timepicker.aspx Provide a way to bind the minimum and maximum dates to a model, so that changing the model changes the min and max dates. This would be useful in creating a date range selector where the start date must be prior to the end date.
It is possible to retrieve IEnumerable collection from DataSourceResult, but there is no option to get IQueryable collection that has not been evaluated. I think it might be helpful to use filters from grid that can be used to generate a query.
Currently if you have combos that are bound via MVVM or knockout etc and have a kendo data source on them for doing suggest lookup they will query everything without a filter to get the display value for the bound value that is set to the value property of the combo. I should be able to pre-populate an initial set of data on the datasource which it will use when the value property is set. If and only if it isn't set, it should then go and do an odata query with filtering for the specific item and only the specific item based on the field that the dataValueField is bound to, not everything. Further the combobox and auto-complete should cache data and searches previously done so that it doesn't have to hit the data source again in these scenarios as the user types.
Excellent work, I think (one/two way) form data binding with JSON/XML serialization will be very helpful. Templates are good but need to support attribute based data binding expressions without templates.
can you advise if the upcoming mvvm framework can be replaced by knockoutjs and / or work with it. we have invested heavily in ko and love it as an mvvm framework. we have also started to use kendo to replace telerik mvc (where appropriate) but would like to know if we can ensure that all 3 products will work together... telerik for server-side UI, ko and kendo for client.
Mapping xml with namespace prefixes is not currently possible. Basic XPath predicates should be supported (no less than is already natively supported by jQuery). Kendo UI should have first-class support for XML. As it stands, Xml support is currently second class to JSON.
I have a Site http://www.amb-selfiesquaregurgaon.com/ . Can i track its page views,browsing time and any other statistical methods on this..can you please suggest me how can i achieve my goal.
When calling the update method on the grid the update is being called after read. When using a pop up modal to update a row that using a hidden member of the model as an id the display name isn't updated and the update call is actually firing off after the read so the value on the grid looks unchanged until you sort or refresh the page.
It would be nice to have the IF and IFNOT bindings like KnockoutJS has. It would help keep the DOM cleaner instead of having to use the Visible binding.
Apologies if this is not the right place to post this, but couldn't find a bug section for Kendo UI. The problem: [DataSourceRequest]DataSourceRequest Custom binding doesn't seem seem to add the WHERE into the generated SQL, when using DataSourceRequest.Filters ( i.e. myCollection.Where(request.Filters)). However, paging, and sorting working as expected. I would appreciate some feedback on this issue. Thank you very much, Panos.
CRUD operation with data source without using grid
Currently the default model binding of Kendo assumes that enums will be serialized as numbers. While this is the case with the default MVC JSON serializer, there are a number of problems with it (including this poor handling of enums) that make people replace the default JSON MVC serializaer with other popular ones - such as the https://github.com/JamesNK/Newtonsoft.Json. If would be really nice if Kenod datasources could be able to map enum values in both integer and string value name format and if they were binding back the same format returned in the request.
Instead of using JSON to create a pie chart in Dataviz, it would be so much easier to use an SQLDataSource, So that the pie chart can be dynamically updated.
