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.

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

Example

<div id="splitter">
  <div>Pane A</div>
  <div>Pane B</div>
</div>
<script>
$("#splitter").kendoSplitter();
var splitter = $("#splitter").data("kendoSplitter");
splitter.destroy();
</script>
