I'm trying to run an application using WP8 layout, but it only shows a black screen with navigator bar bellow.
Texts and input fields are not visible (see screen attached).

IOS, IOS7 and Android runs like a charm, only WP doesn't.

I'm using these CSS and JS files:
<style type="text/css">
    @import url(css/kendo.common.min.css);
    @import url(css/kendo.default.min.css);
    @import url(css/;
<script src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>
Running this code at the end of HTML:
  var app = new$(document.body), {platform:"wp"});
I'm using trial version of Kendo UI  (2013.3.1119.trial).

The same happens with examples that came in ZIP file (

Thanks for help.

Hello Andre,

The WP theme is specifically designed to work on a WP8 phone and it automatically adapts to the current WP8 theme foreground and background colors. However this affects its rendering on desktop, especially in browsers that don't support these features - WebKit and Gecko based. Can you check how your application looks in IE10+ with WP8 user agent or better yet in WP8 simulator or real device?
