Here's what I've done:

  1. Created an Electron app, and verified that it works
  2. Copied the Kendo UI js and styles directories into my app's directory
  3. Modified the index.html file per the demo instructions to use a datepicker:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Welcome to Kendo UI!</title>
        <link href="../telerik/styles/kendo.common.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <link href="../telerik/styles/kendo.default.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <script src="../telerik/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <script src="../telerik/js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
        <input id="datepicker" />
        <script>
            $(function() {
                $("#datepicker").kendoDatePicker();
            });
        </script>
    </body>
</html>

 

However, when I run the app, I get a text box on the page; not the datepicker.

Is there something else I need to do?

I found the workaround.

 After referencing jquery.min.js, the following line is needed

<script>window.jQuery = window.$ = typeof module === 'object' ? module.exports : jQuery</script>

Hello Tom,

I'm glad to hear that the issue is resolved.

Also, I can suggest checking the following post in our blog describing the integration between Electron and Kendo UI:

http://developer.telerik.com/featured/desktop-apps-with-electron-and-kendo-ui/

Additionally, I would like to thank you for sharing the solution with the Kendo UI community.

Regards,
Stefan
