I'm struggling to find documentation I need or even sample code for "Enterprise" class development using declarative data binding. The demo's are good at getting you started quickly but none of them use declarative data- attributes, which seems an odd ommission given that the Pluralsight training course "Introducing Kendo UI" recommends this approach over the others shown in the demo's.
eg I can't find a list of all the available data-roles. I found "menu" eventually (after wondering why "kendoMenu" or "Kendo.UI.KendoMenu" didn't work but without documentation or a robust application this is pretty much guesswork for each widget unless I've missed something in the available documentation.
It's also come as a bit of a shock to discover the response to this user struggling to get declarative data binding working with the menu control http://www.kendoui.com/forums/framework/mvvm/source-binding-to-the-menu-widget-or-other-widgets.aspx
Has the position changed since this was posted in April last year or is it still the case that none of the hierarchical widgets can't be data bound declaratively and the recommended way of dealing with this is as outlined in the answer (which seems a hell of a hack).
Thanks in advance for any response.
