Coming in 2023

The KendoReact 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) 

Feedback from our customers is a big piece of these plans. The KendoReact components have evolved to what they are today thanks to feedback from folks like you. Feel free to share your plans, requirements, and ideas for what you would like to see next in the KendoReact library by posting in our feedback portal.  

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

  • Running Totals
  • Summary Display Modes
  • Expand All / Collapse All

Chart Enhancements

  • and more!

Trendline Chart Component

New component
In 2023 we plan to expand the collection of React 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 React applications.

Timeline Component

New component R2 2023
The KendoReact Timeline component will allow you to visualize a list of chronological events in a professionally designed manner. The timeline will support both vertical and horizontal orientation, as well as options to render custom content and collapse/expand events. 

Component Responsiveness

We will work towards making sure KendoReact UI 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, etc., plus the Date & Time picker UI components.

Grid Improvements


The KendoReact team will be busy adding features to the native React Data Grid. One of the most popular components in the UI library today, this will remain a big focus for development in upcoming releases. These features include, but are not limited to:


  • Configuration options to control the number of records to be pre-rendered during Virtual Scrolling
  • Column Re-Ordering Auto-Scroll
  • Copy & Copy With Headers options for Selected Cells

Date Editing UX Improvements

Improvement R2 2023
In 2023 we plan to improve the user experience related to navigation, editing, and validation in the KednoReact DateInput and Date & Time picker components.

Improvements in Gantt Popup Editing

New feature
We will improve the KendoReact Gantt component popup edit form by adding a tabs feature and exposing additional task properties that can be configured in it.

Table Wizard for the Editor



The KendoReact Editor will receive the often-requested Table Wizard. This end-user tool will provide a more guided way for users to create and manage Tables within the Editor content.



Accessibility Improvements

In our upcoming 2023 releases, we will continue with our efforts to improve the overall accessibility of KendoReact UI components, ensuring the highest level of compliance with WAI-ARIA, Section 508, and the new WCAG 2.2 standards.

VS Code Productivity Tool

New feature

The KendoReact team will focus on building React-specific tooling for the Kendo UI Productivity Tools for Visual Studio Code. This Visual Studio Code extension provides helpful tools like code snippets, application and page scaffolding, and much more.

With the combination of our React UI components and the Kendo UI Productivity Tools all developers can enjoy a productivity boost when developing their user experience with the KendoReact components.

Content Security Policy (CSP) compliance


Pursuing the goal to be CSP compatible and ultimately ensure strict CSP compliance for KendoReact, 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.

Wizard Component

New component
The KendoReact Wizard lets users create a multi-step process which guides uses step-by-step through a particular process. Building on top of the already popular React Stepper component, the Wizard will be focused on helping developers build longer forms which are then broken down to more manageable steps.
