    I would like to layout my kendo ui mobile with separate .html files for each view, so that my project tree would end up looking like


    I have tried this using this structure but the 'designer' errors with "Designer View is only available with the Kendo UI Mobile or DataViz templates" when i try to open view1.html

    Is what i am attempting possible with the designer?

    Hello Si,

    The Designer View is only available if you are using Kendo UI Mobile or Kendow UI DataViz templates to create your project. If you create Blank project or jQuery mobile project the Designer View will not be available.

    It is possible to create the structure you described and use the Designer View but first you have to create your project as Kendo UI Mobile or Kendo UI DataViz project. The other option for existing project is just to add to your project.

    If you want to create html page and edit it in the designer that html page should have jquery.js and included. Here is a small snippet you can use when you want to create html page that will work in Designer View

    <!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <link href="kendo/styles/" rel="stylesheet" />
        <link href="styles/main.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <script src="cordova.js"></script>
        <script src="kendo/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
        <script src="kendo/js/"></script>

    Note that Designer View is still experimental. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any other problems you expirience with Designer View.
