    I have a list view that I have created.  I would like to trigger an event when an item in the list view is double clicked.

    To do this, I have the following template:
    <script id="uxMyTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-tmpl">
            <div class="cwcs_listItem" data-id="${ID}">

    And the following function to register the event:
    function _setItemDoubleClickEvent() {
        var items = $(".cwcs_listItem");
        items.dblclick(function() { alert("Double Click!"); });

    Unfortunately this doesnt do me any good before the data has been retrieved and the template rendered in the list view.
    My question is: Is there an event I can register for which will be called when a kendo control has finished rendering a template?

    Hello Joshua,

    To achieve this you could hook up the dataBound event of the Kendo UI ListView. For example: 
       dataSource: dataSource,
       template: kendo.template($("#uxMyTemplate").html()),
       dataBound: _setItemDoubleClickEvent
    // ...
    function _setItemDoubleClickEvent() {
       var items = $(".cwcs_listItem");
       items.dblclick(function() { alert("Double Click!"); });

    Another approach for implementation of such functionality is to use jquery delegates. For example:
    $("#listView").delegate(".cwcs_listItem", "dblclick"function() {
        alert("Double Click!");

    I hope this helps.
