thanks a lot for the answer. I do know Avoid Within-Page Links
from 2006. Maybe this article would be written different, today. As far as I understand it, if you take it serious, all navigation within an SPA should be avoided.
But I do not want to discuss this theoretically. I only have the end users of my applications in mind. And if Telerik says that they do not like my considerations, this is perfectly ok with me. There are ways to achieve what I want.
As a last example, look at PanelBar / Animation effects
. Change some the "Animation Settings". Then click on "Animation effects" in the left navigation bar. Isn't it strange that nothing happens? Wouldn't you also expect the settings to be reset to their default values?
