    Hi there,

    I would like to disable or remove the <li> containing the "never" radiobutton, to force the user to set an end for the task. I managed to do this on the edit-event, but only for existing tasks. When I tried to hook the "change"-event of the recurrenceEditor, I couldn't get the selector $(':radio[value="never"]') to work. This part is undocumented, and a bit hard to "guess". Anyone got a hint?

    Some example code:
    01.<div data-container-for="recurrenceRule" class="k-edit-field">
    02.    <div data-bind="value:recurrenceRule" id="recurrenceEditorDiv"></div>
    03.    <script>
    04.        $(function() {
    05.            $("\#recurrenceEditorDiv").kendoRecurrenceEditor(
    06.            {
    07.                frequencies: ["never", "weekly"],
    08.                change: function(e) {
    09.                    // This would be nice if it worked
    10.                    var rb = e.container.find(".k-recur-end-never");
    11.                    rb.attr('disabled', 'disabled');
    13.                    // Or this. This works in the grid's "edit"-event
    14.                    var li = e.container.find(".k-recur-end-never")
    15.                                        .parent()
    16.                                        .parent();
    17.                    li.remove();
    18.                },
    19.                messages: {
    20.                    end: {
    21.                        after: " efter ",
    22.                        occurrence: " händelse(r)",
    23.                        label: "Slut",
    24.                        never: " aldrig",
    25.                        on: " på "
    26.                    },
    27.                    frequencies: {
    28.                        weekly: "per vecka",
    29.                        never: "aldrig",
    30.                    },
    31.                    offsetPositions: {
    32.                        first: "första",
    33.                        second: "andra",
    34.                        third: "tredje",
    35.                        fourth: "fjärde",
    36.                        last: "sista"
    37.                    },
    38.                    weekly: {
    39.                        interval: " vecka(or)",
    40.                        repeatEvery: "Intervall",
    41.                        repeatOn: "Dagar "
    42.                    },
    43.                    weekdays: {
    44.                        day: "Dag",
    45.                        weekday: "Veckodag",
    46.                        weekend: "Helgdag"
    47.                    }
    48.                }
    49.            });
    50.        });
    51.    <\/script>

    Hello Par,

    In general, the recurrence editor is not designed to allow control over end pattern. I will suggest you open a user voice discussion on this subject, as this is will be a great way to gather community feedback about that functionality.

    If this is a must for you to stop the never  option then you can hide/disable the first radio button like it is shown here. Please note that the suggested approach is a custom solution and I cannot guarantee it will work in future releases.

    Thank you Georgi!

    This solution is more than enough. This is for a very special solution, for a special customer. My personal thought of this being stupid idea wasn't enough for them so I guess they will have to live with it. Hopefully I won't have to do this again.

    Resurrecting an old thread here but is this still the only/recommmended way to hide the Never radio button for the end pattern in the recurrence editor? It would be great if there was a declarative way of doing this similar to the frequency options:


    <div data-container-for="recurrenceRule" class="k-edit-field">
        @(Html.Kendo().RecurrenceEditorFor(model => model.RecurrenceRule)
            .HtmlAttributes(new { data_bind = "value:recurrenceRule" })
            .Frequency(frequency => frequency


    Similar to the OP, it's more of a user issue here, we really don't want some one to pick a recurrence of Daily and an end of Never!

    Hello Simon,

    I am afraid, that there is no built-in functionality to achieve the desired appearance. If you need to hide the 'Never' option for recurrence end, you could follow the example suggested previously in this thread.

    Another suggestion is described in the following link from StackOverflow. For your convenience I prepared a Dojo example based on the sample code in the link. I hope you will find it helpful.

    Neli, can you set the "After" radio button to be default selected after hiding the "Never" radio button for Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Yearly options? As it is now radio button is selected ("After or End") which confuses our users, they have been selecting neither radio button...

    Hello Simon,

    You could achieve the desired result as follows:
    function onRecurrenceEditor_Change(e, obj) {
      var buttonNever = obj._buttonNever;
      var buttonCount = obj._buttonCount;
      if (buttonNever) {
      if(buttonCount) {  

    Here is an updated Dojo example that demonstrates the above.
