Kendo UI for Angular


Coming in 2023

The Kendo UI for Angular Team is excited to announce the roadmap for new components and features on our list for release. Many of these items will be released this summer as part of R2 and others will come shortly after. 

To keep the flow of updates dynamic, we release interim updates that lead up to each major release. Here is what we plan for this year:

  • March - R2 2023 Iteration 1 
  • April - R2 2023 Iteration 2
  • June - R2 2023 (final)
  • July - R3 2023 Iteration 1
  • August - R3 2023 Iteration 2 
  • October - R3 2023 (final) 

Your feedback is a huge factor in these plans. After all, our mission is to make your life easier. We encourage you to keep sharing your thoughts, plans, and ideas for what next you would like to see developed in the Angular component library in our dedicated feedback portal.  

The items below are what we feel comfortable announcing, but there is more on our radar. Check back periodically for updates.

Kendo UI for Angular

PDFViewer Component

New component R2 2023

The upcoming Kendo UI for Angular PDF Viewer is a component designed to display PDF files within any Angular application. This enables end-users to view and interact with PDF files without having to download them locally or rely on third-party tools, including the built-in browser capabilities to view PDF files in a separate tab.

Data Grid Features

New feature Customer Feedback

We recognize that the Data Grid is among the most widely used components in the Angular component library. For that reason, we constantly monitor feedback, support, standards, and UX trends to ensure the Data Grid remains the best in class. Here is what we are working on:

  • Tabbed column menu
  • Aggregate function upon cell selection
  • Printing the data view 


Improvements in Gantt Component

New feature

We plan to deliver two new valuable features to the Gantt Chart component.

  1. PDF export functionality
  2. UX improvements for the popup edit form such as adding a tabs feature and exposing additional task properties that can be configured in it.

Date Editing UX Improvements

In 2023, we plan to improve the UX related to navigation, editing, and validation in the Kendo UI for Angular DateInput and Date & Time picker components.

Chart Enhancements


Thanks to your requests in the product feedback portal, we plan to ship the following new features and improvements:

  • Drill-down option for data series
  • Improved animations
  • Control of chart legend display
  • and more!

Trendline Chart Component

New component
In 2023 we plan to expand the collection of Angular Chart components by adding a Trendline chart. You will be able to easily illustrate trends in data series and provide charting predictions capabilities to your Angular applications.

TreeList Drag and Drop

New feature

We will enhance the Kendo UI for Angular TreeList with the built-in feature to reorder rows within the component, as well as drag and drop of rows between different tree lists.

Checkbox Visibility in the TreeView

New feature
The TreeView component will enable you to easily control the visibility of checkboxes for both parent and child nodes.

Component Responsiveness


We will work towards making sure Kendo UI for Angular components adjust smoothly to various screen sizes. We plan to ensure adaptiveness and responsiveness in multiple select and editor type controls such as AutoComplete, ComboBox, MultiSelect, and Date & Time Picker components.

Content Security Policy (CSP) compliance


Pursuing the goal to be CSP compatible and ultimately ensure strict CSP compliance for Kendo UI for Angular, we are planning to implement the following incremental changes in 2023:

  • With R2 2023, we plan to replace all font icons internally used with SVG icons in order to address the font-src directive;
  • Further in 2023, we plan to detach font-related CSS from Kendo themes in order to remove the need for the font-src directive.

Accessibility Improvements


In our upcoming 2023 releases, we will continue with our efforts to improve the overall accessibility of Kendo UI for Angular components. This will ensure compliance with WAI-ARIA, Section 508, and the new WCAG 2.2 standards, as well as providing solid documentation, demos, and A11Y-related resources.
