Hybrid Button HtmlHelper Overview

The hybrid Button HtmlHelper extension is a server-side wrapper for the hybrid Kendo UI Button widget.

It allows you to configure the hybrid Kendo UI Button from server-side code.

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the hybrid Kendo UI Button for ASP.NET MVC.

  1. Create a new ASP.NET MVC 4 application. If you have installed the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Visual Studio Extensions, create a Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC application. If you decide not to use the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Visual Studio Extensions, follow the steps from the introductory article to add Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC to the application.

  2. Open HomeController.cs and modify the Index action method.

    Example
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            ViewBag.Message = "Welcome to ASP.NET MVC!";
    
            return View();
        }
    
  3. Add a hybrid Kendo UI Button to the Index view. Like most hybrid Kendo UI widgets, the Button must be initialized within the hybrid View content.

    Example
    
            <% Html.Kendo().MobileView()
                    .Name("button-view")
                    .Title("Inbox")
                    .Content(() =>
                    {
                        %>
    
                        <%: Html.Kendo().MobileButton()
                                .Name("mobile-button2")
                                .Text("Trigger Event 2")
                                .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "margin: 2em; text-align: center;" })
                        %>
                        <%
                    })
                    .Render();
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().MobileView()
                .Name("button-view")
                .Title("Inbox")
                .Content(
                    @<text>
    
                    @(Html.Kendo().MobileButton()
                            .Name("mobile-button2")
                            .Text("Trigger Event 2")
                            .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "margin: 2em; text-align: center;" })
                    )
    
                </text>)
            )
    
  4. Initialize the mobile application.

    Example
    
            <%: Html.Kendo().MobileApplication()
                    .ServerNavigation(true)
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().MobileApplication()
                .ServerNavigation(true)
            )
    
  5. Build and run the application.

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all hybrid Button events.

By Handler Name

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a handler name.

Example

        <%: Html.Kendo().MobileButton()
                .Name("MobileButton")
                .Text("Button Text")
                .Events(events => events
                    .Click("onClick")
                )
        %>

        <script>
        function onClick() {
            //Handle the open event.
        }
        </script>

        @(Html.Kendo().MobileButton()
                .Name("MobileButton")
                .Text("Button Text")
                .Events(events => events
                    .Click("onClick")
                )
        )

        <script>
        function onClick() {
            //Handle the click event.
        }
        </script>

Reference

Instances

You can reference a hybrid Button instance by using the code from the example below. Once a reference is established, use the hybrid Button API to control its behavior.

Example
    @(Html.Kendo().MobileButton()
            .Name("MobileButton")
            .Text("Button Text")
    )
    <script>
    $(function() {
        //Notice that the Name() of the Button is used to get its client-side instance.
        var button = $("#MobileButton").data("kendoMobileButton");
    });
    </script>
