    Binding Kendo UI Widgets In A Backbone.View

    It's not terribly difficult to get a Kendo UI control in to a Backbone.View. I've written about this before, and I do it a lot. Sure, there are a few little things you need to know about - like when to initialize the control - but for the most part, getting the widgets in place is easy. Once you have the Kendo UI Widgets in place, though, things get to be a little more ... interesting. If you want to respond to standard DOM events within a Backbone.View, you can just use the events configuration. But if you want to handle events that comes from the Kendo UI widgets directly, you would be in for writing some extra code in your view to manually wire this up. Until now.

    How To Load And Save A Single Record In A Kendo UI DataSource

    In my last post, I talked about storing user credentials from Everlive in localstorage. This gave me a nice way to keep a user logged in, between page refreshes. After having used this for a bit, I realized that I was adding new records to the local storage on every login. This was causing a problem because I wasn't getting the right credentials loaded all the time. Every time the wrong credentials were loaded, the app thought I was not logged in because the credentials were invalid. To fix this, I needed to fix my storage so that it always loaded a single record and saved that single record.
