    Hello Team;
    Since Kendo is missing several of the key HTML helpers for inputbox or checkbox for data entry and we need to use the ones that come with MVC out of the box, how do we make/match the MVC standard helpers to match the skin & Theme of Kendo?

    Our Data entry would look very out of place to put a @Html.TextBoxFor next to a @(Html.Kendo().NumericTextBox<double> if they don't share the same skin * theme. What's the procedure to share Keno's Skin?

    Thanks!

    Hello Ben,

    You can apply Kendo UI CSS classes to generic HTML elements, so that they receive appropriate consistent styling. The following page lists the CSS classes that you can use:

    http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/web/appearance-styling

    We do not provide styling for checkboxes, as it requires additional HTML and Javascript.

    Hello Dimo;

    Thank you for the speedy response. The link you provided is very helpful. Is there plan to add support for Checkbox and Radiobutton to you CSS or is Kendo plan to add it;s own widgets to the list of widgets?

    I hope you will add support for these two as well to cover most popular widgets.
    Thank you again for your support.

    Hello Ben,

    I am afraid we have no short-term plans to introduce styled chekboxes and radio buttons. We might implement them in Q3 2013, but consider this as preliminary and unofficial information.
