destroy

Prepares the Button 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.

Important: This method does not remove the Button element from DOM.

Example

<div data-role="view">
  <a id="btn" data-role="button">Foo</a>
  <a data-role="button" data-click="removeBtn">Remove button</a>
</div>

<script>
  var app = new kendo.mobile.Application();

  function removeBtn() {
    $("#btn").data("kendoMobileButton").destroy(); //detach events
    $("#btn").remove();
  }
</script>
