    I'm not sure if I'm doing something unsupported, but it looks like you cannot preview remote views from 3rd party servers in Mist. The aim is to generate Kendo UI markup on a server and then render as part of the client app.

    It works correctly in Icenium Ion on IOS 7.0 (It successfully loads the remote Kendo code)

    Example code (last link)

    <div data-role="footer">
                <div data-role="tabstrip">
                    <a href="#tabstrip-home" data-icon="home">Home</a>
                    <a href="#tabstrip-login" data-icon="contacts">Login</a>
                    <a href="#tabstrip-location" data-icon="search">Location</a>
            <!--        <a href="#tabstrip-weather" data-icon="globe">Weather</a>-->
                    <a href="http://external-server/custom_code.htm"  data-icon="globe">Remote File</a>

    When clicking the link in Mist, it comes up with the below error : 

    Possible CORS error!
    • Tips:
    • -Check your request url
    • -Use Graphite
    • -Debug on device

    You would have this error only in Mist as it is a browser based i.e. your requests are coming from and CORS issues would arise. For more information refer to this forum post.

    If you're using the in-browser client in Chrome, you can get the Telerik AppBuilder Helper for Chrome which enables Ajax CORS requests for the device simulator to spare you the CORS errors.

    You can get it from here. The team plans to bring more improvements in the Helper in the future, so keep an eye on it.
