New Component: jQuery Captcha

Captchas are a common spam-fighting element for web forms, but they can be tedious to create. The new jQuery Captcha makes implementing it a set-and-forget task. This component requests the user to input information from a distorted image, representing letters and numbers. It also provides audio reproduction of the image as an additional option for stronger security.

New Component: jQuery Popover

The new jQuery Popover gives you an easy way to display information about an element on focus, click or hover. For example, you can use it with a month-view calendar and pop over each day’s detailed schedule when that day is clicked.

Form Various Enhancements

New Form Feature: Support for Hidden Form Fields

The jQuery form component now properly supports hidden fields to ensure you can handle any form scenario you need to develop. When you designate a hidden field, nor it or the space it would occupy will appear in the UI.

New Pager Enhancement: Improved Accessibility

The jQuery Pager, most typically used in Data Grid implementations, is now more accessible to screen readers and fully supports keyboard navigation.

See the Data Grid Keyboard Navigation demo

New jQuery Design Tools: Kendo UI Kits for Figma

The Kendo UI Kits for Figma are design files that make the collaboration between application developers and designers easier. Each UI kit is a precise visual representation of the Kendo UI for jQuery components. We offer three Kendo UI Kits for Figma, one for each of the themes that come with the Kendo UI for jQuery component library: Kendo UI Default, Bootstrap and Material. The purpose of the Kendo UI Kits is to enable the seamless handover of the design to the developers.
