The following example demonstrates how to create and use custom templates for the Scheduler events and the Edit window.

    <div id="example">

          <input checked type="checkbox" id="alex" value="1">
          <input checked type="checkbox" id="bob" value="2">
          <input type="checkbox" id="charlie" value="3">
      <div id="scheduler"></div>
    <script id="event-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    <div class="movie-template">

      <h3>#: title #</h3>
      <p>#: description #</p>
    <script id="customEditorTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    <div class="k-edit-label"><label for="title">Title</label></div>
