    It would be nice if we had some more real business sample apps.  I see there are a few examples on git hub but are quite limited.  There is a mention of a Northwind Sample coming which would be more useful.    Something with a fair few linking tables,  some lookup lists, CRUD forms.   There are of course different samples online here but not too many actual complete MVC examples.  Most examples have blank MVC controllers!!.  So im not sure about anyone else but I have to then try to implement these examples using MVC with entity framework sending data to the view and back to the controller.  This usually involves a lot of head scratching and trail and error before i manage success.   

    If i click on http://www.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc then click on Demos it takes me to the Kendo demos which has examples for ASP.net and MVC with razor syntax etc, but when i click on documentation all this has gone and all the documentation is in the plain html syntax with no mention of MVC.  

    The Sample Kendo apps apps websushi, aeroviewr are nice and pretty.  The ASP.NET sample salesdashboard is basiclly lets see how many pretty visual elements we shove into one page.  The WPF Sample apps are the same.   But your tools are used for more than just pretty websites and sales dashboards with loads of graphs and charts.   They are also used for boring financial applications with lots of basic but very different types of data entry forms.  The meat and potatoes of business applications.  Show us how to build these apps too.  The bootstrap example page would be quite useful if you turned it into an MVC sample application with full CRUD forms etc.   Nothing too complicated just something like using he Northwind or Adventure Work databases (or one of your own).   This would i'm sure save people a  lot of time.

    Thanks

    Hello Kevin,

    We realize the need of more sample applications and appreciate your honest feedback. Could you please let us know what would you like to see in a sample project? 

    Other than that you may find the following sample ASP.NET MVC applications useful:

    SalesHub  (built with Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC - ASP.NET MVC wrappers for Kendo UI)

    - Live demo
    - Documentation 
    - Source

    Musicstore (built ASP.NET MVC and the JavaScript version of Kendo UI)
    - Live demo
    - Documentation
    - Source

    In addition you can check the sample ASP.NET MVC application that ships with the distribution.

    Hi,
    I recently bought the Kendo UI Mvc suite; great stuff! At the moment, I am on my first journey to create a mobile web application combined with a MVC5 back end.

    I would like to see a simple sample project which handles the following requirements:
    - MVC5 web application with Kendo UI Mvc
    - usage of the Single Page Application pattern (no post backs, ever!)
    - usage of create/edit/delete Mvc Razor forms (which should be ajax/client based because of the SPA pattern)

    Goal: a Kendo mobile web application which utilizes the MVC razor goodies like scaffolding and model validations etc. to enable real rapid development.

    Perhaps there are some examples available (still looking into the knowledge base); but it would save me a dramatic amount of time to have this in a simple sample app.. I am particularly stuck on the architecture; how to embed the Razor forms in a SPA with Kendo controls without post backs..

    Best regards,

    Ruud

    Hello Ruud,

    the closest thing we have which matches your requirements is the mobile asp.net mvc wrappers (like this one). A runnable MVC application is available in the download bundle - check the examples folder. Worth mentioning is that several of the patterns you describe (razor forms, etc.) are not specific to Kendo UI, so they are not showcased here. 

    Regards,

    Hi Petyo,

    Thanks for the feedback! I understand, you cannot demo it all' :). But some things are so generic that it might be worth to set up a sample project. In this case a mobile single page application with razor forms, client validations, etc. Just to enable starters like me to kick start Kendo development.

    Luckily I managed to get the specific issue I had to work; I now am the proud creator of a single page app with Kendo UI Mobile controls, RAZOR scaffolding, client validation etc.

    Best regards,
    Ruud
