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.
I have same problem as this guy http://www.kendoui.com/forums/ui/panelbar/expand-all.aspx Via some tricky magic I managed to expand just first sublevel It will be nice to have an option to render all panelBar item sublevels expanded and a method expandAll
When PanelBar items are disabled they are greyed out and the controls on them are disabled. It would be nice if the user had the option to disable a panelBar but also enable whether they are still expandable\collapsable. This way the user could make the panelBar replicate a readonly View.
