Kendo UI for Vue

Roadmap

Coming in 2023

The Kendo UI for Vue 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 Vue 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 Vue

MultiSelectTree Component

New component
The Vue MultiSelectTree component provides the best of two worlds as it combines the capabilities of a drop-down list and tree view components. Using the MultiSelect Tree users can easily choose single or multiple predefined values from a hierarchical list.

GridLayout and StackLayout Components

New component

GridLayout and StackLayout are two new UI components for Vue that will help you arrange HTML elements in a grid or a horizontal/vertical stack.

These components simplify the creation of layouts in web applications and help developers migrate from desktop to the web since they mimic the GridPanel and StackPanel components used in Windows development.

TileLayout Component

New component

The upcoming Vue TileLayout component provides developers with an easy way to define a list of tiles, each with their own custom layout, which can be dragged and dropped around to reorder the collection of tiles to a users perference.

ListView Component

New component

The upcoming Kendo UI for Vue ListView component is perfect for creating lists of data items with custom templates. The layout for each item can be defined by using a Vue template ensuring that the look-and-feel of the Vue ListVue can fit any requirements.

Chart Enhancements

Improvement

Based on your requests in the product feedback portal we plan to ship the following new features and improvements in the Kendo UI for Vue chart components:

  • Drill-down option for data series
  • Improved animations
  • Control of chart legend display
  • and more!

Trendline Chart Component

New component
In 2023 we plan to expand the existing charts collection in Kendo UI for Vue and add a Trendline chart. You will be able to easily illustrate trends in data series and provide charting predictions capabilities to your web applications.

Data Grid Enhancements

Improvement

In 2023 we plan to further expand the UI for Vue Data Grid component with new features:

  • Separate templates options for cells
  • Option to customize the Native Grid's grouping toolbar
  • Add the selectable property to the Native Grid
  • Native Grid pager refresh button
  • and more!

Vue Compact Grid

Improvement

The Kendo Ui for Vue Grid component will receive a new Compact Grid or High Density Grid option. When enabled, the available whitespace within the Vue Data Table will be reduced allowing for more data to be displayed within the same dimensions. This is achieved by reducing the margins and paddings of the UI elements that build up the Vue Data Grid.

This new compact Grid feature will be offered with all the available Kendo UI for Vue themes including the Default, Bootstrap, Material themes, as well as the upcoming Fluent theme.

Native Vue Components to Replace Wrappers

New component

In addition to a large set of native Vue components, the Kendo UI for Vue library currently includes wrappers. These wrappers help you integrate existing Kendo UI components into your applications. We are working to rebuild each of these from the ground up and will deliver them with each release until we reach the goal of having the most complete set of native Vue components available.

    Date Editing UX Improvements

    Improvement
    In 2023, we plan to improve the UX related to navigation, editing, and validation in the Kendo UI for Vue DateInput and Date & Time picker components.

    Accessibility Improvements

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

    Vue Visual Studio Code Productivity Tools

    New feature

    The new Kendo UI for Vue Productivity Tools for Visual Studio Code is a VS Code extension aimed at boosting productivity when developing with our Vue UI components. With features like code snippets and scaffolding, the goal of the Kendo UI Productivity Tools is to be the ultimate companion for developers when building user experiences with Kendo UI for Vue.

    Content Security Policy (CSP) compliance

    Improvement

    Pursuing the goal to be CSP compatible and ultimately ensure strict CSP compliance for Kendo UI for Vue, we are planning to implement the following incremental changes in 2023:

    • For R1 2023 (due mid January 2023) – replace “eval” and “new Function” usages within our own source code with dynamic functions that are CSP compatible. Additionally, we will rewrite any internal usages within the Kendo Templates;
    • As a next step in 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.

    End of Support for Internet Explorer

    Improvement R1 2023

    After much consideration, we decided to follow Microsoft's lead and end support for Internet Explorer in our web and reporting libraries. This means that starting with R1 2023, Kendo UI for Vue will no longer be tested against any version of Internet Explorer, nor will there be specific bug fixes for this browser.

    Teams that still need to support IE 11 officially can always get access to Kendo UI for Vue previous releases.
