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

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


<button id="destroy">Destroy and remove ListView</button>
<div id ="listView"></div>
    dataSource: {
      data: [
        { name: "Jane Doe" },
        { name: "John Doe" }
    template: "<div>#:name#</div>"

    $("#listView").data("kendoListView").destroy(); // destroy the ListView

    $("#listView").remove(); // remove all ListView HTML
