Let's say I need to use a widget that is not available as part of Kendo's offering:

Q1: Can I use a third party jQuery widget, like a "Rating" widget and do the data binding with Kendo Datasource?

Q2: If yes, how can we implement Kendo's theme with third party widgets so all widgets on the page look uniform?

Thanks!
..Ben

Hello Ben,

 You need to extend the third party widget with support for the Kendo DataSource. This blog post shows how to create a custom data bound widget. The code can be used as a starting point.

 If possible you could  use the Kendo CSS classes in the custom widget.

Thanks Atanas, I'll look into those links you provided.
Since this is going to become widely used, meaning third party widgets based on jQuery, will there be some sort of automation tool to ease the databinding and themeing?

Thanks!

Hi Ben,

Currently Telerik provides support only for widgets built in house. I guess depending on interest we may extend some popular widgets with data binding support. However I don't think we will do this for competing products.
