I've read through the introduction to using KendoUI with ASP.NET MVC
about 10 times now to quadrupal check that I've referenced the Kendo.Mvc.dll
assembly and included the correct namespaces in my /Views/web.config file. I've rebuilt the project and solution, restarted Visual Studio and even restarted my machine... but I still can't get the Html Helpers to work in this project.
In a new/clean ASP.NET MVC 3 project I can simply follow the instructions referenced above and everything works fine. Thinking this might offer some clues, I did a diff between the new/clean project file and my project and made sure that my project references all
of assemblies referenced by the clean project. Similarly I ran a diff between the /Views/web.config file for that clean project and my own /Views/web.config file.
However, after all of that, I still
can't get the KendoUI Html Helpers working in this project.
I've read all the forum posts I can find, all of which were resolved by the original posters simply by rebuilding their projects... obviously a solution that hasn't worked for me.
Clearly there is a requirement that is not documented somewhere and which I haven't been able to detect through any of the diff operations that I've run... but I'm totally stumped here.
Any ideas? I'm interested in using KendoUI but with a Linq to SQL backend, creating Serialisable DTOs for all of the Linq Entities etc. and hand coding all of the JSON CRUD operations is a lot of work/maintenance... so I was really hoping to get the MVC extensions working in order to take the grunt work out of this.
