    Hello, i'm trying to learn Kendo and would like to use my local drive initially, just to start off with simple examples and so i'm wondering if Telerik has some examples that i can simply cut and paste to my C:\ drive like below and where the data inputs are JSON files? 

    Or in the example below, can i somehow determine what the full path is for this input dataset?


    thanks very much for any pointers!

    <!DOCTYPE html>
        <base href="">
        <style>html { font-size: 14px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; }</style>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />

        <script src="//"></script>
        <script src="//"></script>

    <div id="example">
        <div id="grid"></div>
            $(document).ready(function () {
                    dataSource: {
                        type: "odata",
                        transport: {
                            read: "//"
                        pageSize: 20
                    height: 550,
                    groupable: true,
                    sortable: true,
                    pageable: {
                        refresh: true,
                        pageSizes: true,
                        buttonCount: 5
                    columns: [{
                        template: "<div class='customer-photo'" +
                                        "style='background-image: url(../content/web/Customers/#:data.CustomerID#.jpg);'></div>" +
                                    "<div class='customer-name'>#: ContactName #</div>",
                        field: "ContactName",
                        title: "Contact Name",
                        width: 240
                    }, {
                        field: "ContactTitle",
                        title: "Contact Title"
                    }, {
                        field: "CompanyName",
                        title: "Company Name"
                    }, {
                        field: "Country",
                        width: 150

    <style type="text/css">
        .customer-photo {
            display: inline-block;
            width: 32px;
            height: 32px;
            border-radius: 50%;
            background-size: 32px 35px;
            background-position: center center;
            vertical-align: middle;
            line-height: 32px;
            box-shadow: inset 0 0 1px #999, inset 0 0 10px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
            margin-left: 5px;

        .customer-name {
            display: inline-block;
            vertical-align: middle;
            line-height: 32px;
            padding-left: 3px;

    Hi Bob,

    Please accept my apology for the delay.

    There is a folder with examples that you can run locally in the Kendo UI Professional trial. The Kendo UI Grid with local data binding is available at:


    If you would like to use Visual Studio, navigate to the default folder for the UI for ASP.NET MVC trial examples and run the project:

    - for ASP.NET MVC applications 

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for ASP.NET MVC Q2 2016\wrappers\aspnetmvc\Examples

    - for Kendo UI Web applications

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Kendo UI Professional Q2 2016\examples

    Another great way to get familiar with simple examples is by using our documentation API reference. We have a Dojo embedded for most public configuration properties,methods, events and fields with simple examples that you can edit, run or open in another browser window to modify.

    I hope this helps, otherwise, let me know how I can assist further.
