All Kendo UI Mobile widgets (except the Scroller, which is enabled for certain web widgets, too) assume to be inside an instantiated Kendo UI Mobile application (and mobile view) in order to function correctly. All demos and code snippets in our documentation showcase that approach.
By coincidence, the scrollview widget was not using any of the mobile application features until the Q1 release. However, we introduced certain improvements related to the way widgets refresh when the container is displayed. This is the reason for the change in the source code in question.
Currently, I can suggest the following workarounds for your case:
- reverse-engineer and mock the container element and its respective widget instance;
- modify the source code and remove the container references;
- keep using the previous version of Kendo UI.
