Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC

Design System Documentation


We launched the new Telerik and Kendo UI design system documentation site containing resources, design assets and frontend documentation for Telerik and Kendo UI libraries.

This initial release of the Progress Design System site contains related design and frontend documentation for nearly 20 of the most essential components, and we aim to continuously expand it with the ultimate goal of providing everything you need to create intuitive and beautiful digital experiences and design systems based on Telerik and Kendo UI component libraries.

Our plan is to continuously enhance the design system documentation site throughout 2023 and allow you to easily build your own design system based on Telerik and Kendo UI components.

Change in Icons


As part of our continuous efforts to improve the Telerik and Kendo UI products’ quality, theming mechanism and Content Security Policy (CSP) compliance, we are planning to transition gradually from font icons to SVG icons.

Step 1: SVG Icons (R1 2023 – January 2023)

Starting in R1 2023, we introduced and started incorporating SVG icons into Telerik and Kendo UI products. We provided a global configuration setting that enables you to keep the current default font icon type, but also allows you to render SVG icons.

Step 2: SVG Icons as Default in Telerik and Kendo UI Components (R2 2023 – June 2023)

With R2 2023, we will perform a change in the default type of icons in Telerik and Kendo UI libraries and components from font to SVG. This change marks the next milestone in a series of improvements related to Content Security Policy (CSP).

Step 3: Detach Font Icons from Themes (R3 2023 – October 2023)

With R3 2023, we aim to extract the Font icons as a separate package and detach the inline font declaration from the Telerik and Kendo UI themes.

Important to note is that the themes will continue to support both font and SVG icons in components, thus allowing you to decide which type of icons to take advantage of. However, using the font icons will require a separate stylesheet to be referenced by clients.

These last bits of changes will allow us to provide our customers with a more secure and efficient icon system and the option to load and reference only needed resources.

Read about the strategy for improving Telerik and Kendo UI web component libraries by moving from font icons to SVG icons in the dedicated blog post.
