Admin edit: A Knowledge Base article that shows how you can achieve this: https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/knowledge-base/disable-multiselect-items
A kendoDropDownList places an arrow to the right of the <select/> element, indicating it's a dropdown (.k-i-arrow-s). It would be cool if kendoMultISelect did the same thing. Clicking the <select/> element or the arrow should also toggle the visibility on the list items. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31825788/kendo-multiselect-to-have-arrow-icon-and-behavior-to-close-on-click .
It will be very nice if the AutoComplete, DropDownList, ComboBox, and MultiSelect components have the floating label functionality like the TextBox widget
When there is no filter enabled in the DropDownList it is possible to select an item just by typing, without opening the DropDownList popup.
It would be useful if such an option is available when the filter of the widget is configured.
the multiselect control should have the possibility to define elements as not editable (readonly) so that those elements can not be removed while other elements can be removed or new elements can be added.
When the user enters a filter, the list is filtered. But if the user deletes the filter by clicking on the X in the filter box, the list remains filtered. It does not revert to the full, unfiltered list. To get back to the full list, the user must delete the filter by backspacing or pressing the delete key on the keyboard. This behavior is confusing some users, who have used the mouse to delete the filter in IE11. There's no longer a filter string there, but the list is still filtered. Can the dropdownlist listen for the click that clears the filter string from the textbox?
Populate selected items when using browser back buttons for both Html and MVC Wrapper versions
I'd like to be able to style the matching text from autocomplete, so I'd like the option for kendo to perhaps wrap the text in a span or something I can get a handle on... So if I typed "Back" it'll give me results like this <li><span class='t-match'>Back</span> to the future</li>
On MultiSelect have an option when they type in a complete name and then blur out to save that name. It works if they hit enter or tab. But if they don't (like if they immediately press the Submit button), then it looks it took their entry but it really did not.
Create the ability to customize tag templates on the combobox and autocomplete widgets just like the tag template functionality on the multiselect widget
Make up/down arrow keydown events fire a DropDownList change event when in the expanded state. When a user clicks on the DropDownList, the list gets expanded. There is no change event fired for up/down arrow keydown events. I currently have to intercept the up/down keydown events manually. Having up/down arrow keydown events fire a change event would make the widget more intuitive and helpful for user interactions.
Best practice dictates that dropdowns open on mousedown, such that that user can press, move to the desired item, and release all in one movement. You'll of course find this behaviour across many apps and OS's, including MS Office, Windows and OSX. Sadly, Kendo UI dropdowns open on mouseup/click, rather than mousedown, which means the user has to do two clicks to get to what they want. For heavy-usage applications, this is a big pain for users, and definitely affects usability.
Users wonder why the filter has not been removed from the dropdownlist when they use a browser's text INPUT[X] to delete the filter. The browser raises no event is raised when the X is clicked, and so the list does not revert to the unfiltered list. Users must hit the Delete keys on the keyboard. Although developers can use CSS to remove the browser's [X], it would be more convenient if kendo could do this by default for the dropdownlists's filter box, so that developers would not have to remember to add the CSS every time.
Hi Support Team, Current, we are facing a problem when using "kendo ComboBox" and options in attachment. To reproduce this issue, you have to run sample(kendoui.web.2013.1.319.commercial\examples\web\combobox\index.html) from attachment on safari of iPad. Step by step: 1. Click on arrow icon to expand items 2. Click on textbox 3. Type data to search items near the last item on textbox Actual: ComboBox don't auto scroll to item of user typed.
If you're trying to create an accessible form, "the value of the for attribute must be the same as the value of the id attribute of the form control" . Since the ComboBox widget generates a new element and hides the original select element, the for attribute no longer matches this new input element. I think it would be good if the ComboBox widget would somehow keep the for attribute of the associated label element in sync with the newly generated input element. : http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/H44
ComboBox and DropDown are different because the first allows you to enter values non in list, but if you are using Cascading ComboBox, entering a value non in list in the first choice, the second choice is disabled. I'like to have cascading for values in list with option for inserting values non in list.
Currently it is not possible to show the filter row until some data has been received and the dropdown is visible. Please enhance/change the DropDownList widget so that it will be possible the enter a filter expression before any data is queried.
