Kendo UI for Angular


What's Coming in 2021/2022

The Kendo UI for Angular Team is excited to announce the roadmap for what we plan to deliver over the next few releases. 

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

PivotGrid Component

New component
We are thrilled to announce the upcoming arrival of the Angular PivotGrid. You will be able to provide your users with the ability to slice, dice, filter, and analyze large data sets in your Angular applications. 

PDF Viewer Component

New component Customer Feedback
Render PDFs directly in your apps without dependency on third-party libraries. With a toolbar providing paging, zoom, download, search and more, your users will have all the features they are accustomed to.

Grid Improvements

Improvement 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 the Data Grid remains the best in class. Here is what we are working on:
  • Support for CTRL+click when sorting by multiple columns
  • Reorder rows with drag and drop
  • Export to CSV
  • Improved clipboard support including copy/paste to and from Excel and support for keyboard shortcuts
  • Allowing users to copy to clipboard with or without headers
  • Printing the data view 
  • Built-in import from Excel

Gantt Chart Improvements

We introduced the Angular Gantt chart with R3 2021, but we aren't stoping there. Expect the following improvements: 
  • Editable items
  • Keyboard navigation improvements
  • Accessibility improvements

Drag and Drop Component

New component Customer Feedback
Drag and drop is supported across the Kendo UI for Angular library where it makes sense, but many developers are asking for a stand alone component. With this new component, you will be able to give users the ability to drag any html element and drop it in a target area. 

Theme Size Options

New feature
Performance matters. We know you are always looking for ways to shave loading times particularly when you need to display large amounts of data or other complex elements that contribute to large payloads. That's why we are implementing theme sizing options. You will be able to choose from a full theme, a compact theme with just the essentials or a medium theme that falls somewhere in between.

Color Picker Redesign

Improvement Customer Feedback
Among the top requested enhancements for our library are related to the color picker. We plan to expand the feature set to support more use cases. Planned features include, but not limited to the following:
  • Display color picker and palette simultaneously. 
  • More color settings.
  • Reset colors.
  • RGB support (in addition to RGBA)
  • Improved responsive design
  • Custom content support
