    I'm working with the layout example and seem to be missing something very basic.  If I run:

    $(document).ready(function (){    
        var fooView = new kendo.View("<span>foo</span>");
        var layout = new kendo.Layout("<header>Header</header><section id='content'></section><footer>Footer</footer>");
        layout.showIn("#content", fooView);

    I get  as expected:

    What I can't figure out is the how to replace:
    var fooView = new kendo.View("<span>foo</span>");

    with an external file (i.e. foo.html that contains <span>foo</span>)

    What is the syntax to load content from an external html file into the content section of a layout?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Paul,

    you have to access that file with some Ajax call. For example, you can use jQuery's $.get method.

    Another possibility is to use the require.js "text" plugin.
