Templates

The ToolBar allows you to define custom items.

Unlike all other commands, the template command does not need a set type. If a template is provided, the type property will be ignored. By default, you have to define both template and overflowTemplate to specify the way the commandwill be rendered in the command overflow popup. If the command is not intended to appear in the command overflow popup, set its overflow property to "never".

By default, a custom template command without overflowTemplate will not be rendered in the command overflow popup&mdasjh;for example, it will not be considered as overflow: never.

The following example demonstrates how to add a template command.

<div id="toolbar"></div>

<script>
    $("#toolbar").kendoToolBar({
        items: [
            {
                // Specifies what element will be added in the ToolBar wrapper.
                template: '<img class="mail-icon" src="gmail.png" alt="gmail" />',

                // Specifies what element will be added to the command overflow popup.
                overflowTemplate: '<img class="mail-overflow-icon" src="gmail-overflow.png" alt="gmail" />
            }
        ]
    });
</script>

The following example demonstrates how to add a template command that is going to appear only in the ToolBar wrapper.

<div id="toolbar"></div>

<script>
    $("#toolbar").kendoToolBar({
        items: [
            {
                //specifies what element will be added in the ToolBar wrapper
                template: '<img class="mail-icon" src="gmail.png" alt="gmail" />',
                overflow: "never"
            }
        ]
    });
</script>

Custom template commands allow you to add other Kendo UI widgets in the ToolBar. The following example demonstrates how to implement a Kendo UI DropDown widget in the Kendo UI ToolBar.

<div id="toolbar"></div>

<script>
    $("#toolbar").kendoToolBar({
        items: [
            // Add the DropDownList element to the ToolBar with a template.
            { template: '<input id="dropdownlist" />', overflow: "never" }
        ]
    });

    // Initialze the DropDownList after the ToolBar.
    $("#dropdownlist").kendoDropDownList({
        dataSource: [{ item: "Item 1", value: 1 }, { item: "Item 2", value: 2 }],
        dataTextField: "item",
        dataValueField: "value"
    });
</script>
