The only documentation regarding the classes and styles that I could find is at http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/web/appearance-styling. However, this article lists only "commonly-used CSS classes" and I wouldn't consider the article to be "documentation" like the API reference.

I also couldn't find any mention of the various widget constructors or declarative initializers in the API reference. They are mentioned in scattered articles throughout the various sections at docs.kendoui.com, but they aren't in the API section as far as I could tell.

I really want to buy the Kendo UI Complete for MVC product, but I've been so frustrated by the documentation during my free trial period. Is there a Kendo UI user manual or reference book that you could recommend, or is docs.kendoui.com the only available documentation?

Hi Michael,

Currently full documentation of all CSS classes used by the KendoUI framework is not available. Basically most important components use common class names or class names formed according to the convention. For example each widget has a class k-[<widget name>], components of the complex widgets have class names like k-grid-toolbar, k-grid-content, k-grid-pager and etc.

We also have demos that demonstrate how to style common HTML elements such as buttons, inputs or panels.

If you need to find the class of a particular element I recommend browsing the DOM tree with the Developer Tools of your browser.

Regarding your second question, this help article describes data attribute initialization. Please check it and let me know if you have any specific questions.

Documenting is a time-consuming process and we are doing our best to improve and enrich the resources with every release. If you have any concrete recommendations please:
  1. File an issue; or
  2. Make some edits and send us a pull request.

For more information please check this blog post.

Kind regards,
