    Hello,
    please tell me whether the documentation is so poor, or I'm wrong.

    Where can I find:
    1. How to use models in the DataSource (from scratch)?
    2. Describing columns in the Grid I can specify the format. Where is the list of available formats?

    This type of problems I find in the description of each element.
    In my opinion, the documentation is incomplete and hard to discover the full potential of kendo ui.

    Demos are nice, but do not tell me everything.

    EDIT: I'm sorry for post in wrong forum section.

    FYI...There is a complete demo showing you how to implement a Datasource and a Kendo grid in the video section.

    Thanks, however this does not change the fact that the documentation does not have many of the necessary information.

    My team is experiencing the same exact frustration, after purchasing the product, we fully expected a PDF/CHM or other download available to us in our account section - breaking down all configuration options and processes.  In the demo section, some of the functionality that is shown is great, yet when it comes to implementing the same, steps and leaps in logic are missing.

    Does the product purchase give you access to un-minified JS files?

    Hello Joel,

    Yes. Actually, if you download the open-source version of Kendo UI, you will also have the source code.

    Wow, not sure how I missed that ... thanks! There's just no better documentation that readable code at times.
