How can I dynamically calculate the height of the Kendo UI for jQuery Scheduler widget on a mobile device?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to achieve the desired scenario.

<div data-init="initLoginView" data-role="view" id="login"  data-stretch="true">
<header data-role="header">
  <div data-role="navbar">
    <div>TEST</div>
   </div>
</header>
<div data-role="content">
  <div id="scheduler"></div>
<footer data-role="footer">
  <div>footer</div>
</footer>
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
    var kendoMobileApp = new kendo.mobile.Application($(document.body), {
      skin: "flat"
    });

    function initLoginView(e) {
      $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
          date: new Date(),
          height: 100,
          views: [
              {type: "day"},
              {type: "month", selected: true},
              {type: "agenda", selectedDateFormat: "{0:ddd, M/dd/yyyy} - {1:ddd, M/dd/yyyy}"},
          ],
          mobile: "phone",
          timezone: "Etc/UTC",
          dataSource: {
              batch: true,
              transport: {
                  read: {
                      url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks",
                      dataType: "jsonp"
                  },
                  update: {
                      url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/update",
                      dataType: "jsonp"
                  },
                  create: {
                      url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/create",

                  },
                  destroy: {
                      url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/destroy",
                      dataType: "jsonp"
                  },
                  parameterMap: function(options, operation) {
                      if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
                          return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};
                      }
                  }
              },
              schema: {

          },
          resources: [

      function fitWidget() {
        var widget = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");
        var height = $(".km-content").height();

        height = (height * 80) / 100;
