    I noticed that kendo.ui.progress method removes the loading indicator from all of it's descendant. I have 2 async processes which started (almost) at the same time. One indicator showed on a div, and an other indicator showed in a child div. The longer process indicator belongs to the child div's indicator. When the shorter process finished (which has the indicator on the parent div) both the indicators removed.

    <!DOCTYPE html>

        <script src=""></script>
      <div id="parentDiv" style="position:relative;width:400px;height:400px; background-color:red">
        <div id="childDiv" style="position:relative;width:150px;height:150px; background-color:blue">
      kendo.ui.progress($('#parentDiv'), true);
      kendo.ui.progress($('#childDiv'), true);
      setTimeout(function() { kendo.ui.progress($('#parentDiv'), false);  }, 1500);
      setTimeout(function() { kendo.ui.progress($('#childDiv'), false);  }, 10000);

    Is it by design behavior or is it a bug?

    Hello Laszlo,

    The kendo.ui.progress is meant to be used for Kendo UI Widgets (especially the Kendo UI Grid) and nesting progress elements in parent/child containers is not supported by default. Therefore the behavior in your example is expected and there is no workaround.
