    I'd like to understand the reasoning for having no basic 'input' PHP wrapper available.

    The problem it presents is while adopting an MVC approach but without a KendoUI basic input wrapper, it forces a messy approach to coding.  I have ended up with using wrappers in my Controllers to serve the View, but am forced to put 'input' tags in the View as well.  So, I end up with UI controls being created both in the View and in the Controller.

    If I had a basic 'input' wrapper available from KendoUI, I could use ALL wrappers.

    Hopefully this makes sense, and either someone can suggest a better way to do this, or someone can explain the reasons behind excluding a standard 'input' wrapper - hopefully both.

    Many thanks in advance

    Hello Jim,

    The Kendo framework simply does not have such regular input, the closest that we have is an AutoComplete widget. Anyway you can create your own widget extending our framework which renders a simple input. To get the idea you can check how the AutoComplete is implemented and remove most of the options there.

    I am afraid there is nothing else I can suggest to your scenario.

    Kind Regards,
