    Hello Prashant,

    Currently, the Kendo UI Web Splitter can not be fully used in Kendo UI Mobile apps - not all features will work. You still could use it as a layout for the view content, but you won't be able to resize the panels.


    All the best,

    Hi Eduardo,

    Currently we are not scheduled any improvements for the Kendo UI Web Splitter used in mobile apps., but this idea sounds good and I would suggest to share this suggestion as a feature request at our UserVoice page. This way the community would be able to vote and comment it and if this suggestion turns out to be popular, we will consider its implementation.

    I have the same problem and voted on user voice.

    Is it really that hard to make it work to justify the user voice votes ?

    Seems like you're no longer working on the core controls...

    This is actually really disturbing to me. All the controls work fine on a mobile device (iPad) and just the splitter doesn't? We would be happy if the collapsing stuff would work fine - but now we have to implement an extra button which handles that...

    I also voted on the user voice for this fixes and I really hope that they will come soon!

    Regards,

    The weirdest thing is that resizing the splitter dragging the bar works on ipads and other tablets (though it may take a few tries), but the click on the collapse arrow does not work.

    Yeah but the dragging thing takes way too much tries to get it working. It works but you have to hit the splitter exactly...

    But ok I would be fine with it if the collapse arrow would work correctly. A workaround of this problem would be way too complicate. Thats why its really nescessary that this arrow works.

    But as I can see this bug was reported a year ago and there is not a fix yet. I don't think there will be a solution in the near future. :(

    Hello, it's not perfect but I've managed to make the splitter larger and easier to touch with a finger. If I get more time, I'll try to inject bigger button to replace the current ones. (This really should be done by the kendo team!)

    I wonder if it's caused by the button being bind on 'click' instead of 'ontouchstart' when on iPad. 

    var Control = $('#' + controlName).data("kendoSplitter");
     
    var SplitterDiv = $($('#' + controlName).children()[1]);
    if (Control.orientation == "vertical") {
      SplitterDiv.height(SplitterDiv.height() * 2);
    }
    else {
      SplitterDiv.width(SplitterDiv.width() * 2);
    }If I get more time, I'll try to inject bigger button to replace the current ones. (This really should be done by the kendo team!)

    I just ran into this too, after converting a layout to use splitters and promptly getting complaints from my tablet customers.  From the KendoUI Web product page:
    "Out-of-the-box, Kendo UI Web is ready for touch. All Kendo UI Web widgets provide full support for touchscreen devices, such as the iPad, iPhone, and Android."
    Except splitter?  The panel bar seems to work erratically too.  Is there a collected list of these "not really fully supported" controls?
