    Hi Guys!

    I notice in the demo section of the Kendo UI mobile website under Mobile Framework -> Forms there appear calendar controls when clicking on the down-arrow of "Type date", "Type month" and "Type datetime-local" elements, in all simulator types "iOS", "Android", "Blackberry" and "Windows Phone".
    I can see the calendar appearing but somehow something looks out of place as the calendar popup is displayed outside of simulator frame and with different look and feel from other mobile elements.

    I'm wondering if the calendar control is really available in the Kendo UI Mobile suite ?

    Cheers!

    Hi Guys!

    Looking again at it i think those drop-down arrows are rendered only by Chrome because of the HTML5 new input type attributes.

    Cheers!

    Hi Cornel,

    Kendo UI Mobile does not feature a Calendar widget, because mobile devices display a calendar / date selector automatically when there is a <input type="date" /> element. One of the purposes of Kendo UI Mobile is to provide native look and feel on mobile devices. Since date inputs provide this already, there is no need to duplicate the look with custom widgets and additional CSS code.

    The Calendar indeed pops up in a different fashion on every device, depending on the system defaults.

    Can you tell me where this is documented? I would like to see a list of all possible values for the type property for Kendo Mobile UI.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Maura,

    The list of possible <input> type values are available in various online resources, e.g. the HTML specification. This is not something directly related to Kendo UI.
