    When deleting an item a prompt message will appear:

    if a single occurrence: "Are you sure you want to delete this event?" <Delete> <Cancel>

    if recurrence: "Do you want to delete only this event occurrence or the whole series?" <Delete current occurrence> <Delete the series>

    I would like to add in the title of the event to the prompt text so the user can verify her/she is deleting the proper event.

    Hello Erik,

    The required could be achieved by injecting the task title text into the prompt message using jQuery. To do that, in the dataBound event of the Scheduler you could attach a click event handler for the delete cross of the task. This click handler injects the additional text directly in the prompt element:
    dataBound: function(e) {
        $('.k-event-delete').on('click', function(e) {
        var targetEvent = e.target.closest('.k-event');
        setTimeout(function() {
          var eventText = $(targetEvent).find('.k-event-template:not(.k-event-time)').text();
          var messageElement = $('.k-popup-message');
          var currentText = messageElement.text();
          var newText = currentText.replace('this', '"' + eventText + '"');
        }, 0);

    Here you will find a simple Dojo, implementing the above.
