    G'Day Guys,

    I love the demos that you have posted, such as http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/clientbinding/defaultcs.aspx and it is great that you have provided the source code.

    You have also provided "Instructions how to isolate this demo as a stand-alone application (removing the Quick Start Framework dependencies)" which are easy enough to follow but very time consuming. Can you post the stand alone code as well? That way it only needs to be done once, rather than hundreds of us wasting our time going through the code and deleting out the Quick Start Framework dependencies. I know I would be more inclined to play with the code if I didn't have to spend half an hour on each example cleaning it up.

    If you don't want to do it yourself then maybe provide an upload box where some good Samaritan can submit the code that they just spent half an hour cleaning, so that it doesn't have to be done by hundreds of others.

    Just a thought.

    The main purpose of QSF instructions is to explain how to strip the QSF-related logic and isolate a particular demo as a stand-alone runnable solution.  Here are two important steps that you should take to isolate the desired demo: 

    1.Remove the irrelevant Register directives at the top of the page which are used for common QSF header/footer, SessionDataSource, configurators, etc. registration, namely:  
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.QuickStart" %> <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" TagName="Header" Src="~/Common/Header.ascx" %> <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" TagName="HeadTag" Src="~/Common/HeadTag.ascx" %> <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" TagName="Footer" Src="~/Common/Footer.ascx" %> <%@ Register TagPrefix="sds" Namespace="Telerik.Web.SessionDS" %>

    2.Strip the corresponding tags (listed below) from the markup of the page:
    <telerik:Header …. /> <telerik:HeadTag …. /> <telerik:Footer …. /> <qsf:XXXXX …./>

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    And yet, having gone through the steps as instructed, the results don't always work.  There are errors and it's time-consuming to debug.  Why not just post complete, standalone, demo apps?  Sheesh!
