Kendo UI core
On April 16th, we i.e. Telerik announced the introduction of an Open Source Software called Kendo UI Core. Kendo UI Core includes 24 of the UI widgets that are found currently in Kendo UI Web and all of the widgets & features formerly available under Kendo UI Mobile. Kendo UI Core also includes the core framework features that are available in Kendo UI for e.g. DataSource, MVVM, SPA etc.

Q & A:
Here is a recap of the questions that we received during the webinar.
Q: Recently Kendo team integrated Angular JS framework in kendo UI core. Is there any dependencies to create Angular JS apps or just include kendo-ui-core.min.js and jQuery.js?
A: You need to have a reference to angular.js script file before referencing kendo script file. That’s the only dependency we have for working with angular.
Q: What about globalization in kendo UI. What we need to do for globalization support?
A: Here is getting started with Kendo UI Globalization documentation: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/getting-started/framework/globalization/overview
Q: Can we enter custom interval for date time picker time part?
A: Yes you can. The interval of the time can be controlled through interval property in minutes. Find more info here: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/web/datetimepicker#configuration-interval
Q: How can I select only date from the datetime picker control that is without showing default time?
A: Date Time Picker is for showing both date and time. If you just need Date, you should try DatePicker widget – http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/web/datepicker
Q: How we can implement offline behaviour of application using Kendo UI?
A: At the moment we don’t have out of the box support for offline. But you can always cache the data in local storage and use it when offline.
Q: How can I override kendo globalization and support my custom date time format?
A: Kendo has a toString() functionality which takes a predefined format or a custom format to format the date. More information here: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/getting-started/framework/globalization/dateformatting
Q: Can I use Kendo UI Data Source in MVC application?
A: yes you can
Q: Where can I get the list of different widgets present in Kendo UI Core?
A: Take a look at this page: http://www.telerik.com/kendo-ui/open-source-core
Q: Is it possible to add events into the Kendo Calendar?
