    Is there some kind of a guide that explains how to work with fixed / relative sizes in mobile development ?

    I Have seen this documentation

    But i'm lucking some information about how to define a size of an element (is it by px , should I always use em units) , same about font size ect.

    It would be great if you can direct me to some guide or give a short explaination about the BKM's on mobile development lyout & sizing.

    Hello Sagi,

    Since this is a general and extremely broad topic it's not included in kendo's official documentation. Moreover there is no universal guideline that can explain in which case a specific metric should be used.

    The best thing I can advise is to approach the problem theoretically and explore the characteristics of each measurement unit straight from the W3C official web specification: .

    Next you can search for some examples and different guidelines from trusted authors like


    MDN: (plenty of examples)


    and of course many others.

    Most of these vendors already have responsive and/or mobile sites that you can explore, see how they work and borrow ides from there.
