    Is there a list for Kendo UI that outlines in one page all of the 'data-' attributes embedded in Kendo UI and what they do.

    Just by happen-stance and chance and looking at some examples scattered around the web and in AppBuilder I figured out a few but coming in blind, I have no idea what some actually do.

     Is there documentation about all of the 'data-' attributes that we can see in one page.


    "data-role=" - can include layout, view, listview, etc

    "data-value" - (found this by accident) and what does this do?


    "data-source" - what is the difference with this and using data-bind="source : myDatasource" and can they be used interchangably?



    It just seems there are specific parts for SOME of the "data-" attributes, but a comprehensive list on each type would be greatly helpful.

     Seems like they are scattered a bit. 

    Maybe if you have a list or table with each one in it, short description and maybe a link to the detail about each 'data-' type would be very helpful.

    Hello Carlos,

    We don't have such a list. Instead our API documentation lists all configuration options for every widget and element available with Kendo UI. The data-source and data-bind expressions you mentioned are interchangeable.

    The data-source attribute is available only for some Kendo UI widget, while you can use data-bind in all cases described in the bindings section of the Kendo UI documentation.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
