Templates

By default, each Rating item is rendered with a star icon from the Kendo Web Font Icons.

To modify the default icon, use the itemTemplate, selectedTemplate, and hoveredTemplate options.

Item Template

The item template specifies the template which is used for rendering the items of the Rating. If the selectedTemplate is not specified, the widget will use the default start icon for selected items. Therefore, it is recommended that you specify the selectedTemplate when the itemTemplate option is used.

   <input id="rating" name="rating">

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("#rating").kendoRating({
                min: 1,
                max: 6,
                value: 3,
                itemTemplate: "<i class='k-icon k-i-heart-outline'></i>",
                selectedTemplate: "<i class='k-icon k-i-heart'></i>"
            });
        });
    </script>

Selected Template

The selected template specifies the template for rendering the selected state of the items. If the itemTemplate is not specified, the widget will use the default start icon for displaying the normal state of the items. Therefore, it is recommended that you specify the itemTemplate when the selectedTemplate option is used.

When the Rating is in half precision mode, use the same template for both the selectedTemplate and hoveredTemplate options.

    <input id="rating" name="rating">

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("#rating").kendoRating({
                min: 1,
                max: 6,
                value: 3,
                itemTemplate: "<i class='k-icon k-i-heart-outline'></i>",
                selectedTemplate: "<i class='k-icon k-i-heart'></i>"
            });
        });
    </script>

Hovered Template

The hovered template specifies the template which is used for rendering the hovered state of the items. If the itemTemplate is not specified, the widget will use the default start icon for displaying the normal and selected state of the items.

When the Rating is in half precision mode, use the same template for both the selectedTemplate and hoveredTemplate options.

    <input id="rating" name="rating">

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("#rating").kendoRating({
                min: 1,
                max: 6,
                value: 3,
                hoveredTemplate: "<i class='k-icon k-i-heart'></i>"
            });
        });
    </script>
