    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?
