    Check / Uncheck A TreeView Item When Clicking The Label

    Normally, when you click a label for a Kendo UI Treeview item, the item toggles between selected and not. But in some scenarios, you just don’t need the item to be selected. Sometimes it makes more sense for the checkboxes to act as the item being selected or not. I’ve had a number of people ask me how to do this recently, so I wanted to share a quick and easy tip on how to make it work.

    Udemy.com Course: The Kendo UI Scheduler

    The Q2 2013 release of Kendo UI saw the introduction of the new Scheduler widget - a highly requested, highly customizable widget that allows you to schedule things in a calendar view. Along with a new widget, of course, there is a lot of new documentation and new resources for getting started and using it. The schedular, with it’s already powerful and flexible feature set (in spite of still being a ‘beta’) is no exception, of course. And one of the best resources I’ve seen for getting started with it, is the Kendo UI Scheduler screencast course at Udemy.com.

    Binding Kendo UI Widgets In A Backbone.View

    It's not terribly difficult to get a Kendo UI control in to a Backbone.View. I've written about this before, and I do it a lot. Sure, there are a few little things you need to know about - like when to initialize the control - but for the most part, getting the widgets in place is easy. Once you have the Kendo UI Widgets in place, though, things get to be a little more ... interesting. If you want to respond to standard DOM events within a Backbone.View, you can just use the events configuration. But if you want to handle events that comes from the Kendo UI widgets directly, you would be in for writing some extra code in your view to manually wire this up. Until now.

    How To Load And Save A Single Record In A Kendo UI DataSource

    In my last post, I talked about storing user credentials from Everlive in localstorage. This gave me a nice way to keep a user logged in, between page refreshes. After having used this for a bit, I realized that I was adding new records to the local storage on every login. This was causing a problem because I wasn't getting the right credentials loaded all the time. Every time the wrong credentials were loaded, the app thought I was not logged in because the credentials were invalid. To fix this, I needed to fix my storage so that it always loaded a single record and saved that single record.

    Using LocalStorage And Kendo UI's Observable To Cache Icenium Everlive Access Tokens

    Using Icenium Everlive for data storage and user authentication is easy. Everlive won't persist your access token for user authentication, between browser refreshes, though. Using a simple combination of Everlive, Kendo UI's MVVM, and a local storage dataSource adapter, you can easily persist the data between refreshes to ensure the user stays logged in.
