    I am working on a hybrid app that is currently using Kendo UI Core framework. I would like to know if it is possible to integrate some UI components from WinJS inside the project. I had tried to add the WinJS libraries and css styles. However, every time the app is loaded, the style is override by the Kendo UI style as well as the WinJS style would mess up the Kendo UI style.

    Also, in the case of it is possible to do that, how would I handle the navigation and the loading of the mobile view, since Kendo UI and WinJS have different way to do that.

    Hello Thai,

    Both Kendo UI and WinJS are separate mobile application frameworks and as such, their framework parts - the app initialization, navigation and rendering - cannot work together. Usually such frameworks consist of two parts - a framework and controls. The most clean solution would be to just use one or the other, not the two combined, but you can also choose one of the two to be your main framework and simply use the controls from the other. However, nobody can guarantee that the controls from one framework will work flawlessly out of the box with another framework as a base. Even if they work now, there is no guarantee they will work in the future.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

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