    First forum post here,  I'm currently in the midst of my free trial using Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC.  I'm an F# developer and use the MVC5 templates provided by this visual studio extension.  When I right click on the project in solution explorer, I have the option to convert the application into a Telerik UI for ASP.NET Ajax but not an option for MVC.  This is probably because this feature only recognizes the C# MVC5 templates.  Is there any manual work around for this or hope for a future addition to support this.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    In addition, the AJAX conversion wizard fails with the following error (which I submitted when it popped up).

    An error occurred while running the wizard.

    I would however rather use the Razer/MVC syntax than the AJAX syntax.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately we do not support F#. Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC is a set of server-side wrappers that allow using the Kendo UI widgets from C# or VB.NET code. The reason for the crash is an omission in our detection in the Visual Studio Extensions. We just fail to filter F# projects.

    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    Is this on the road map for the future in Telerik or not?  This will be an important factor for our company in determining whether or not to purchase licenses at the end of the month.  We would at least need ASP.NET AJAX support for it to make sense to continue using Telerik.

    Hi Steve,

    Currently F# support isn't on the roadmap of Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC. You may consider logging a feature request in our feedback portal so we can prioritize it against similar requests.

    Right now you can manually add UI for ASP.NET MVC to an existing ASP.NET MVC 5 application by following these instructions.
