    I'm part of a team rewriting the UI of a heavy desktop ASP.Net application using kendo components.
    One of the objectives is to have a multibrowser and multiplatform (desktop + mobile) application.
    Currently I'm using kendo 2013.2.716 version.
    I tried the application on Ipad with Safari as browser. 
    I included as scripts kendo.all.min.js and as stylesheet

    I got stuck on the first page as the original application uses menus that I converted to kendo menus. This worked satisfactorily on desktop but failed miserably on Ipad since the menu was rendered as pure
    html.The menu has the familiar shape with a couple of levels.
    See enclose image below.

    How can I convert menus in the mobile environment ? 
    I saw the list of mobile widgets and no menu exists.
    What could be a workaround to reproduce the menu functionality without writing a new
    application from scratch ?

    I'll be grateful for any hint,
    Thanks for your attention

     best regards

    Hi Marco,

    The Kendo UI Menu works in mobile environment as well as on a desktop device. I have tested our demos on an iPad, and was not able to observer any discrepancies. Could you reproduce the issues that you are having using our online demos?

    From the screenshot posted, it looks like there is some custom CSS styling applied, so is it possible to extract a runnable sample, demonstrating the issues that you are having with the Kendo UI Menu, that we can run locally and investigate further?

    Hello Kiril,
    thanks for your response. I discovered a wrong initialization.
    Anyhow it looks like we need a major replanning and refactoring of our interface.
    I wiil get in touch if we will encounter a specific problem.
    Sorry to have triggered you for nothing,

    best regards
