How do we prevent popping up keypad when using this multiselect widget. It is text input box. if we make it read-only then the multiselect feature won't work.

Hello Rasika,

This is the default behavior of an input element on a touch device - when focused the keyboard is shown. The same behavior can be observed without Kendo UI as well. Its a browser behavior that we cannot work around at the current moment.

Have there been any changes to supporting this on a touch device?  Having the soft keyboard pop up is not needed and its an annoyance.

Hello,

As I said it will be the same behavior with a simple input and no Kendo UI scripts loaded on the page. We cannot workaround browser behavior I am afraid.

Give this a try:

      $(".k-multiselect").find("input").attr("type", "hidden");

It seems to be working for me.

Telerik,

Is it possible to incorporate a solution like this into the product in an upcoming release?  This works perfectly.

$(".k-multiselect").find("input").attr("type", "hidden");

Thanks to Oscar for the solution.

Hi,

As it was already discussed this is the default behavior of the inputs so there are no plans to change this behavior for the time being. You can use Oscar's solution as a workaround. Here is a sample:
http://dojo.telerik.com/@parvanov/OLOzE/4

That said, we do want your feedback, feature requests and suggestions for improvements, which is why we’ve set up a User Voice portal for just this purpose. By funneling feedback through a dedicated feedback portal, we’re able to gauge customer interest, clarify needs and measure the status of requests over time. It has been a critical part of our product development over the last years, so I do hope you’ll head on over to the portal to enter future requests.

Best Regards,
Misho
