        <label>
      Title:
      <input data-role="textbox" data-bind="value: title" />
      </label>
        <label>
      Start:
      <input data-role="datetimepicker" data-bind="value: start" />
      </label>
        <label>
      End:
      <input data-role="datetimepicker" data-bind="value: end" />
      </label>
    <button id="save" class="k-button k-button-md k-button-rectangle k-rounded-md k-button-solid k-button-solid-base">Save</button>
    <button id="cancel" class="k-button k-button-md k-button-rectangle k-rounded-md k-button-solid k-button-solid-base">Cancel</button>
    </script>
