destroy

Prepares the Switch 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 Switch element from DOM.

Example

<div id="foo" data-role="view">
  <input id="switch" type="checkbox" data-role="switch" />
  <a data-role="button" data-click="onClick">Destroy</a>
</div>

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

function onClick() {
  var switchInstance = $("#switch").data("kendoMobileSwitch");

  switchInstance.destroy();
  switchInstance.wrapper.remove();
}
</script>
