We use data-testids (an attribute) for our test automation.  It looks like on an internal component like buttons in popup boxes and rows in a grid that we can no longer add these.  Is there some way in KendoUI that we can add these tags for our automation testing.  KendoMenu items  is an example where we like to add them for each menu item that it seems like we can't

Thank You,
Anthony Rizzolo

Hello Anthony,

Currently it is not possible to set and id for the Menu items through the Menu nor the MenuItems configuration. Following is a full list of the supported item properties:

One thing that we can suggest is changing the rendering of the items and add an inner element containing the "data-testids" attribute:

The same applies to the Grid's rows, where you can override the row rendering and add the attribute in question:

Please note that the solution might differ per component and some components might not provide option for overriding the rendering, in which case a pure JavaScript solution after the rendering might be required.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the response and the suggestion...I will have the developers look at doing the inner-element to contain the data-testids...

Just wondering if it would be possible to add the ability to add attributes and id's to these elements for testing at some time in the future.  Thanks.
