    Hi,
    can I try the Kendo UI MVC on the brandnew  ASP.NET MVC4 RC as well?
    Means: is the Binaries\MVC3\Kendo.Mvc.dll ok for MVC4?

    Cheers,
    Hermann

    Hello,

    Since MVC4 is still not official yet, we have not tested extensively, but surely you can use Kendo UI MVC with it. We will not be supporting MVC1 and 2 though.

    I'm sorry, that is kind of a cop-out answer. MVC 4 is a release candidate, which means the version they put out is basically the RTM version. If you guys aren't testing against (and compiling for) pre-release versions, you are not covering all your bases. I would argue that you guys should be designing for the NEXT version of MVC and then make compatibility changes for the previous version after that work is done.

    And on that note, whether you are on MVC 4 and .NET 4.5, inline or in-cell editing for the Grid fails, whether or not you have the AntiXSS encoder added to the httpRuntime or not.

    An image of the result is attached.

    If you guys are going to make existing paid Kendo users pay for this server-side library, it needs to have full support for every current version of .NET Microsoft supports. Since Microsoft has a Go-Live license for MVC 4 and .NET 4.5, then you guys need to be shipping binaries that work in that configuration. Otherwise existing users should be getting it for free, because it is an incomplete product.

    Hi Robert,

     Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC will have a .NET 4.5 and ASP.NET MVC 4 build when there is need to. So far we haven't implemented any ASP.NET MVC 4 or .NET 4.5 features. When we so so we will have a dedicated MVC4 build.

      On a side note I couldn't understand the remark about the editing. Could you please clarify? Some explanation with the code you have used would definitely help.

    Atanas,
    if I decide to stay with VS2010 and not to use the fancy new stuff from .net 4.5
    can I switch to a side by side mode, where kendo.mvc.dll runs with mvc3 (system.web.mvc) and where I can work with system.web.mvc 4.?

    I have tried to adjust your example
    in kendoui.aspnetmvc.2012.2.621.trial\Examples\aspnetmvc\
    to work with mvc4 dlls (system.web.mvc, system.web.webpages, system.web.razor ...)
    according to
    http://www.asp.net/whitepapers/mvc4-release-notes#_Toc303253806
    and
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10284754/replace-mvc3-view-engine-with-razor-v2
    but had no luck in the first run...
    <sigh>,

    Hi Hermann,

     I followed the detailed instructions from the asp.net documentation and managed to upgrade the Kendo UI Complete for ASP.NET MVC sample project. Find it attached.

    Atanas,

    Please refer to support ticket 558235. The problem appears to be a bad binary in the MSI version. My attachment in that post includes my binary that reproduced the problem. Turns out the zip had a larger binary that does not have the problem.

    So I apologize for the harshness of my post. Was the result of several hours trying to figure out why a major feature was totally broken. Didn't know that somehow my bits went bad.

    Thanks!

    -Robert

    Hi Robert,
    <off topic>
    just wanted to tell you, that this happened to me as well...
    There is this bl**dy bug that costs you hours and hours and then it's a big relieve to find someone to blame for - even if something else caused the troubles...

    FYI - starting an MVC 4 project from scratch (using Kendo.Mvc.dll 2012.2.710)
    can result in an "Invalid template" error being thrown by kendo.web.min.js if an encoderType attribute of type System.Web.Security.AntiXss.AntiXssEncoder is present in the httpRuntime element in the web.config file.

    @Todd you should submit this feedback on their UserVoice portal (http://kendo.uservoice.com) so they can log it and possibly fix it if you're positive it's a bug and not an implementation issue.
