Kendo UI for jQuery


Coming in 2022 & 2023

The Kendo UI for jQuery 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 jQuery 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 jQuery

Compact Grid for jQuery


The Kendo UI for jQuery Grid will receive a compact Grid mode with an upcoming release. The Compact Grid feature removes unneeded whitespace within the elements of the jQuery Grid to make all UI elements as compact as possible.The end result is a jQuery Data Table with more data displayed within the same dimensions, letting users view large sets of data displayed at once without the need for scroll to see more. This functionality can also be known as a high-density Grid.

Grid Improvements


We recognize that the Data Grid is among the most widely used components in the jQuery 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:

  • Improving the user experience when grouping by hiding the column that is currently grouped
  • Offering a configuration option to disable the built-in column menu
  • Updating the behavior when the last remaining data item on the last page of the Grid is removed
  • And more

GridLayout and StackLayout Components

New component Customer Feedback
Take the hassle out of layout by letting Kendo UI for jQuery handle it for you. GridLayout and StackLayout are two new components that help you arrange HTML elements in a grid or a horizontal/vertical line. These components help developers migrate from desktop to the web since they mimic the GridPanel and StackPanel components used in Windows development.

Dock Manager Component

New component
The Dock Manager component helps you mimic the familiar Windows experience in which users can arrange and resize a collection of panes to their liking. This new component will help you provide a great UX in very little time.

Theme Improvements


As UI design requirements become more complex, our users need more customizability in our themes on the component level. Throughout 2022, we will be introducing enhancements to the way individual components work with themes to make it easier to use your own design system. These will be a set of common options that will help define the colors, size and shape of individual components.
