The most requested feature for ComboBox was that popup could be another widget. For example Grid and TreeView.

Now the Q3 is out, and I want to use this functionality, but I don't know how. All demos are showing me some popup window example and not DropDownList popup.

I was expecting to do something like Grid in Combobox, Grid in ComboBox 2, TreeView in ComboBox, TreeView in ComboBox 2.

 

Can you please provide a demo or Dojo example how we can achieve this?

Hello MatjaĆŸ,

The newly released feature which was planned based on the listed requests is the Kendo UI Dialog:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/layout/dialog/overview

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/dialog

As described in the GitHub issue we did not plan to release exactly Grid or TreeView in ComboBox but instead, we suggested the following two solutions:

- TreeView in Dialog

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/dialog/treeview-integration

- TreeList in Dialog

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/dialog/treelist-integration

Let me know if you need additional information on this matter.

Regards,
Stefan

In dialog solution will not work with my design. I need to find a way to include it in DropDownList. How?

I also have a question. Does this mean that 2 requested features in UserVoice will stay open, since they are not supported yet?

Hi,

the UserVoice items we refer to are marked as complete. We do understand that the provided solution is different than the one requested, and acknowledge that.

We do, however, believe that the UI pattern we suggest works better for a number of scenarios, the most notable one being the mobile devices. The traditional dropdown drawer is relatively small for complex UI, and, by default, closes when clicked or scrolled. None of these disadvantages are present with the suggested dialog approach. 

If you are facing a specific scenario, which is not compatible with the provided solution, I may suggest that you suggest a new idea in the portal - we will re-iterate over the case, and if a lot of people still consider it the dropdown implementation necessary, will include it in one of our next iterations. Thank you!

Regards,
Petyo
