I can assure you that here, at Progress, we are looking into improving our products as per to the best understandings of our clients and the developers using Kendo UI. In order to best put all feedback, feature requests and ideas into a well-organized planning procedure we are using the feedback portal as a channel: http://kendoui-feedback.telerik.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback
. This is why we encourage everyone to post ideas, feedback and opinion on the product there. That way every single item is evaluated and planned according to votes, which affects the importance of the task. That way we can make sure that every single feature/improvement is added based on exact demand.
With that said, I suggest you to vote for this item here: http://kendoui-feedback.telerik.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback/suggestions/17024842-modify-the-title-of-the-predefined-dialogs
. That way the task about including a title option in the predefined dialogs will gain more priority and put it closer to the to-do features.
As for the predefined Dialogs, maybe, using imitate is a wrong word here. In terms of design concepts and specification of the provided predefined dialogs, the requirement was to create Alert, Confirm and Prompt dialogs that function just like the browser's predefined dialogs. The ones we provide, however, have the Kendo themes and stylization, which improves the UX behavior of the web application. Generally, when using a Kendo theme, the predefined dialogs will look like a part of the web application instead of a plain browser dialog. And that is the main idea of having the Kendo UI predefined dialogs.
I entirely understand that there are many cases that customization is needed. And there are application requirements that those predefined dialogs may not be suitable for. However, such needs can be also accomplished, by using directly the Kendo Dialog widget
and define a dialog that best accomplishes the needs of the particular application. The Kendo Dialog is the base of the predefined widget and you can set it up the way you need it.
