Hi all,

I am excited about the prospect of using KendoUI and am in my trial, but I can't even make a simple tabstrip UI page work correctly. I was following along with the intro tutorial here: http://docs.kendoui.com/howto/build-apps-with-kendo-ui-mobile

Couldn't get that to work. CSS works and the widgets are there, but when I click on the About tab the about.html is appended to the URL, but I don't actually go to the about.html page. 

I decided to rip open the sample apps and take a look. I changed my index.html around to try to load a different view when clicking on the about tabstrip:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>My App</title>
     
    <link href="css/kendo.mobile.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
</head>
<body>
    <div data-role="view" data-layout="default">
        Hello Mobile World!
    </div>
 
    <div data-role="view" id="about" data-title="About">
        About this app.
    </div>
 
    <div data-role="layout" data-id="default">
        <header data-role="header">
            <div data-role="navbar">My App</div>
        </header>
        <!-- View content will render here -->
        <footer data-role="footer">
            <div data-role="tabstrip">
                <a href="#">Home</a>
                <a href="#about">About</a>
            </div>
        </footer>
    </div>
     
    <script src="js/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="js/kendo.mobile.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 
    <script>
        var app = new kendo.mobile.Application();
    </script>
</body>
</html>

I get the about view to load, but not "inside" of the layout, the screen is white, no title bar and just has the about text.

So, am I going mad? Any ideas are welcome. Thanks!

Hello Christopher,

The data-layout option should be specified to the "about" view in order for the layout to be used e.g.

<div data-role="view" data-layout="default" id="about" data-title="About">
    About this app.
</div>
Kind regards,
