    I am using Kendo UI in my hybrid app and have a login form, when the user presses the GO button after completing their password, I want my script to process the form.  I have searched and found a few posts about adding either an onsubmit parameter to the form tag or a keyup handler.  Neither have worked.

    What is the proper way to handle this for a hybrid app using Kendo UI?  I will have a similar situation with a search field.

    Hello David,

    To be able to handle the Go button, you can define your login as a form with a submit button and handle the submit event of the form:
    <form id="login">
        <ul data-role="listview">
                User name: <input />
                Password: <input />
                <input type="submit" value="Login" />

    $("#login").on("submit", function () {
        alert("Form Submitted");


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