destroy

Prepares the widget for safe removal from DOM. Detaches all event handlers and removes jQuery.data attributes to avoid memory leaks. Calls destroy method of any child Kendo widgets.

This method does not remove the widget element from DOM.

Example - destroy the map and remove it from the DOM

<div id="map"></div>
<script>
    $("#map").kendoMap({
        layers: [{
            type: "tile",
            urlTemplate: "http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/#= zoom #/#= x #/#= y #.png",
            attribution: "&copy; OpenStreetMap"
        }]
    });

    var map = $("#map").data("kendoMap");
    map.destroy();

    $("#map").remove();
</script>
