    I have added a view to my scheduler:

                    .Views(v => {

    ...and so on

    ...and I have defined this custom view as follows:

    var MyCustomView = kendo.ui.MultiDayView.extend({
        options: {
            selectedDateFormat: "{0:D} - {1:D}",

            title: "this does not work"

         title: "this does not work, either",
        calculateDateRange: function () {
            var start =,
                idx, length,
                dates = [];
            for (idx = 0, length = 14; idx < length; idx++) {
                start =;

    But I cannot seem to provide a title to this view to appear on the button. Specifying a title either in the view config, or the options of the view config does not work, and the CustomView method takes only one argument. I believe the javascript equivalent takes two arguments, with one being the title of the custom view, but the MVC version does not. where do I set the title?

    The answer, for posterity, is as follows:

    .Views(v => { v.CustomView("MyCustomView", view => view.Title("Custom View Title"));})

    Hello Tom,

    You are correct, the title can be changed by configuring the views.title property as specified in your second reply. You can find the respective documentation here.
