  • With Drag and Drop API
  • In Touch support.

Putting all HTML and Script code together:


<html >
<!--In the header of your page, paste the following for Kendo UI Web styles-->
<link href="styles/kendo.common.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="styles/kendo.default.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<!--Then paste the following for Kendo UI Web scripts-->
<script src="Scripts/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="Scripts/kendo.all.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="Scripts/Test.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<title>My Kendo UI Demo</title>
<h1>Kendo UI Demo</h1>
<input id="cricketerAutoComplete" />
<script type="text/javascript">

When you run Test.htm in your browser, you should get this output:


In later posts I will get into detail about all widgets. I hope this post is useful. Thanks for reading.
