How can I show or hide different parts of the editor template based on the event state?


The following example demonstrates how to achieve the desired scenario. As a result, if the event is not new, the template hides the Title field and displays a message.

<div id="example">
      <div id="scheduler"></div>
    <script id="customEditorTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
<!-- notice how the Title is hidden if the event is new -->
<div data-bind="visible: isNew">
  <div class="k-edit-label"><label for="title">Title</label></div>
  <div data-container-for="title" class="k-edit-field">
      <input type="text" data-role="textbox" name="title" required="required" data-bind="value:title">
<div data-bind="invisible: isNew">
    <h4>The 'Title' field is hidden, because event is not new</h4>
<div class="k-edit-label">
    <label for="start">Start</label>
<div data-container-for="start" class="k-edit-field">
    <input type="text"
    <input type="text" data-type="date" data-role="datepicker" data-bind="value:start,visible:isAllDay" name="start" />
    <span data-bind="text: startTimezone"></span>
    <span data-for="start" class="k-invalid-msg" style="display: none;"></span>
<div class="k-edit-label"><label for="end">End</label></div>
<div data-container-for="end" class="k-edit-field">
    <input type="text" data-type="date" data-role="datetimepicker" data-bind="value:end,invisible:isAllDay" name="end" data-datecompare-msg="End date should be greater than or equal to the start date" />
    <input type="text" data-type="date" data-role="datepicker" data-bind="value:end,visible:isAllDay" name="end" data-datecompare-msg="End date should be greater than or equal to the start date" />
    <span data-bind="text: endTimezone"></span>
    <span data-bind="text: startTimezone, invisible: endTimezone"></span>
    <span data-for="end" class="k-invalid-msg" style="display: none;"></span>
<div class="k-edit-label"><label for="isAllDay">All day event</label></div>
<div data-container-for="isAllDay" class="k-edit-field">
    <input type="checkbox" name="isAllDay" data-type="boolean" data-bind="checked:isAllDay">
<div class="k-edit-label"><label for="recurrenceRule">Repeat</label></div>
<div data-container-for="recurrenceRule" class="k-edit-field">

<div data-container-for="ownerId" class="k-edit-field">
    <select id="ownerId" data-bind="value:ownerId" data-role="dropdownlist"
                    data-value-field="value" data-text-field="text">
      <option value="1">Alex</option>
