Hello folks,

I have a question related to Kendo and jQuery compatibility. In my project, we rely on Kendo UI for jQuery for most of our UX components. We are using Kendo UI version 2018.1.117 and the jQuery version 1.12.2.

We are trying to upgrade jQuery to 3.5 and want to know if this will still work with our current Kendo version (2018.1.117). I understand jQuery and Kendo are closely related and we eventually want to upgrade Kendo to latest 2020.2.617 too but upgrading both at the same time is not something we would prefer. We prefer to take incremental approach of upgrading jQuery first, followed by Kendo upgrade.

Documentation here specifies the supported jQuery version for Kendo. Is there any documentation that will point what components will break if we are at an unsupported jQuery version? I did a quick spike with [ Kendo 2018.1.117 + jQuery 3.5 ] and there were no visible issues.

Looking for your suggestions here. Thank you!

Kiran

Hello Kiran,

We do not have the suggested documentation that lists the components that will be affected. Generally, as the unsupported jQuery version may break only specific features of a component, all the Kendo widgets might be affected in a way. That is why we do not recommend using Kendo with jQuery version that is not officially supported. In that case, I would suggest updating jQuery to 3.1.1, which is the latest compatible with 2018.1.117 before you are ready to update to a more recent Kendo version.

I hope I was helpful. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Regards,
Martin
