Kendo UI for jQuery


What's Coming in 2021/2022

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 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 jQuery

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 and 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.

Admin Dashboard Application Template

New feature
Speed up your development projects even more by starting with a template! Designed by our professional UX team, this template helps you hit the ground running when you need to create an admin portal. All the appropriate components and themes are built-in. All you need to do is wire it up to your data. Of course, you can customize it as much as you wish.

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.

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 the Data Grid remains the best in class. Here is what we are working on:
  • Support for CTRL+click when sorting by multiple columns
  • Option to fit all columns to content width
  • Reorder multiple rows with drag and drop
  • Support for non string fields in Grid search
  • Export to CSV
  • Dedicated grid context menu
  • For section, show aggregates in tooltip or status bar
  • Allowing users to copy to clipboard with or without headers via context menu
  • Tabbed column menu

New and Improved PivotGrid

New component Customer Feedback
Technology and UX trends change quickly and our tools need to change with them in order to ensure that you can take advantage. We are taking a fresh look at the PivotGrid, redesigning, and redeveloping it. You will find the new component faster, more customizable, and more pleasing to your users.

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.
