destroy

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

The destroy method does not remove the Timeline element from the DOM.

Example

<div id="timeline"></div>

<script>

$("#timeline").kendoTimeline({
    dataSource: {
        data:[ {"id":1,"title":"Bowling tournament","subtitle":"Location: Sterling Lanes","description":"Summer Bowling tournament in Michigan","date":"2025-06-30T21:00:00.000Z","actions":[{"text":"Visit the Bowling tournament page"}] },
                {"id":2,"title":"Charlie's first football game","subtitle":"Location: City Football Stadium","description":"Call coach Williams","date":"2022-10-22T21:00:00.000Z"},
                {"id":3,"title":"Alex's Birthday","subtitle":"Location: Alex's House","description":"Buy birthday cake and some fruits","date":"2010-01-09T22:00:00.000Z","images":[{"src":"https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/content/web/foods/4.jpg"},{"src":"https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/content/web/foods/16.jpg"}]},
                {"id":4,"title":"Vacation in Mexico","subtitle": "Location: Cabo San Lucas","description":"Check-in for the flight","date":"2017-12-24T22:00:00.000Z"}],
        schema: {
            model: {
            fields: {
                date: {
                type: "date"
                }
            }
            }
        }
    },
    collapsibleEvents: true,
    orientation: "vertical"
});

var timeline = $("#timeline").data().kendoTimeline;
timeline.destroy();
</script>
