I want to know if anyone has a quick guide on how to make my elements apply the CSS prior to a kendo element applying them. An example would be the kendoAutoComplete. It looks at the element and does some changes to the HTML and applies CSS when it finishes. The problem is this causes a flash of elements that look different depending on the speed of the JS in the browser. This doesn't look professional. I've tried to take the classes that KendoUI applies to the elements and add them to my HTML but then the final look is not correct. Am I just doing something wrong or is this how it was designed?
