I've tailored the splitview demo on the Kendo UI demo site.
Prior to the splitview view displaying, I have an initial view asking for some information including what default category the user is interested in.
I'm looking for a solution where I can automatically navigate the user to their selected category. I.e. #side-inbox?CategoryID=15
This is effectively mimicking the user navigating to the split view and clicking on category 15. I will still give them a facility to go "back" so they can look at the contents of other categories.
I've done the easy bit of navigating to the splitview using app.navigate("#splitview"); but I'm struggling to fire the default category.
See extract of categories view on left side of the splitview:
<div data-role="view" data-title="Categories" id="side-root" data-use-native-scrolling="true">
<ul data-role="listview" data-style="inset" data-source="splitViewCategories" data-template="categoriesTemplate">
<script id="categoriesTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
<a href="\#side-inbox?CategoryID=#: CategoryID#" data-icon="mostviewed"><span class="daysfont">#: CategoryName #</span></a>
Appreciate any help,
