    Hello Matjaž,

    The described behavior is expected. Through the options there is only the meta data of the custom action existence. However, after setOptions, widget is re-rendered. Therefore, any events bound and classes added are removed after the DOM operation. This is a normal behavior when DOM elements are recreated.

    The solution is to process the custom action in the same way as initially done: 

    window.setTimeout(function(){"kendoWindow").setOptions({title: 'Not working'});
          .find(".k-i-mycustom").addClass("k-i-close").click(function (e) {
              alert("Custom action button clicked");
      $('.armchair').html('Not working after setOptions. Icon is also changed.');
    }, 2000);
