In order to be able to use the Paner Bar as an assistant, or to be more polivalent as such, I think that this would be a nice feature to boost the use of Panel Bar
This is a must have. Sooner rather than later please!
Allow each item in a PanelBar to be named via Name() and then allow access to the items with alternatives like: var pb = $("#panelBar").data.("kendoPanelBar"); var item = pb.Items("myName"); or var item5 = pb.Items(5); Further, make the expand. collapse, select methods become methods of the item so that.... $("#panelBar").Items("myItem").expand(); is the way it is done. I am sure the same principle can be applied to other widgets like Menu, for example.
