I've reported this as a bug via a support ticket, but just wanted to warn anyone else who might be, or might be thinking of using the current extensions to Visual Studio 2012, either to create a new MVC4 project with KendoUI, or to use the "Telerik, KendoUI for ASP.NET MVC, Configure project" menu to configure a standard MVC4 project to use KendoUI:
My advice is don't until these problems have been fixed!
- The new project wizard does not produce an MVC4 project when you ask it to, it produces an MVC3 one instead.
- The configure project wizard does not currently do its job properly for MVC4 projects. (I have wasted hours on trying to find out why my project wouldn't work before realising that this was the reason, not something I had done in my code!). It seems to follow steps recommended for manual configuration of an MVC3 project and not those for an MVC4 one (e.g. if doesn't amend the bundles, seems to include jquery twice).
Until the bugs in these extensions/wizards are correct, if my own experience is anything to go by, you are likely to find your project is plagued with error messages that will send you off on wild goose chases (because actually they aren't closely related to the problem at all!) like:
"This request has been blocked because sensitive information could be disclosed to third party web sites when this is used in a GET request. To allow GET requests, set JsonRequestBehavior to AllowGet"
- when I scrolled my grid horizontally, the headings didn't move ...
Overall, I'm only about 30% happy with the way KendoUI has been trumpeted with great fanfare, whilst only half working with MVC4. In many cases the documentation has been wrong (I've had to point out corrections several times) and it is still very incomplete, and these extensions don't seem to have been tested much before release.
Rant over, but this is disappointing from Telerik, who seem to have such great products otherwise.
