    I'm trying to implement my own drop down with custom controls on it, but cannot find proper control to that. In fact I would like achieve exactly the same result as Kendo Grid filter window. On on some button press it drop downs a popup (window) which automatically close if clicked outside the window, but allows usage, normal drop down list, multiselect, datepickers inside. So exactly what grid filter does. However I cannot find proper control to achieve that.

    Could you advice?

    Hi Marcin,

    Those widgets (dropdownlist, combobox, filter menu widget, etc.) use a component called popup. This is an external Kendo UI component and as such is not documented.

    You can see its code in the open source Kendo UI Core repository and use it on your own risk.
    You may examine the usage of the popup control in the DropDownList:

    Note that as this is an internal component, Kendo Team cannot provide further guidance about its usage and will not warn for any breaking changes in it.
