    Hello Team;
    will there be a similar concept like ASP.Net "Master Page" which eliminate repeating part of a page in any new page? This would help designing a less crowded page.
    Or a similar concept like Silverlight having a "Content" area that can be navigated to using AJAX.

    Hi Ben-

    For the time being, Kendo UI will not provide a MasterPage equivalent. Kendo UI is focused on delivering client-side, JavaScript UI tools, and in that space there is no need for server templates..

    Still, templating is very important for sites and apps. There are a few options for templating when working with Kendo UI:

    1. Use your preferred server-side technology's dynamic templating solution (such as ASP.NET MasterPages, Zen Framework for PHP, Rails Layouts, etc.)
    2. Use a static HTML rendering solution for templates, such as Jekyll, Hyde, or DocPad
    3. Use AJAX to load content in to a single "template page"

    In other words, there are various solutions to the templating problem with modern, JavaScript apps. Kendo UI can plug-in to any of them. I hope that helps. It's definitely a slightly different way of thinking if you're coming from the ASP.NET world.

    Thanks Todd for pointing out the alternative solutions. As time goes by, I need to get a better sense of this new templating.
