    Does anyone know if it's possible to chain promises on the click of the 'ok' button in kendo.alert(), like you can do with kendo.confirm()?

    If not, is there any other way I can latch on the 'click ok' event for a kendo alert?

    Hi Roohi,

    The predefined Kendo Alert dialog does not return a promise. However, you could define the action of the alert and bind a click handler as follows:

    <button id="showAlert">Show Alert</button>
    <div id="alert"></div>
      $("#showAlert").click(function() {
      function showAlert(message) {
            okText: message
          actions: [{
            text: "#: messages.okText #",
            action: function(e) {             

    I have also prepared a Dojo example where the above approach is demonstrated:

    I hope this helps. In case you have any additional questions, please let me know.

    kendo.alert *should* return a promise.


    Please add to back log.


    Consistency is so import in these types of frameworks.
