For a complete example, refer to the Templates demo of the TaskBoard.

Card Template

The card template controls the rendering of the cards.

    <script id="card-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
        #:title# #=cardMenuButton#
        #:description#  
    </script> 

    <script> 
        $("#taskBoard").kendoTaskBoard({ 
            template: $("#card-template").html(), 
            dataOrderField: "order", 
            dataSource: [ 
                { id: 1, order: 1, title: "Task 1", description: "Description 1", status: "backlog", category: "red" }, 
                { id: 2, order: 2, title: "Task 11", description: "Description 11", status: "backlog", category: "red" }, 
                { id: 3, order: 3, title: "Task 2", description: "Description 2", status: "doing", category: "green" },
