Updated ASP.NET Core Component Demos, Docs and Examples
The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Team is continuously working on improving and expanding not only the UI component library, but also its documentation, examples and knowledge base articles.
With R2 2020 we updated many of our component demos to give a more complex overview examples of what you can achieve in real world scenarios using UI components such as the Grid, Scheduler, Editor and more.

We regularly monitor your documentation feedback and try to deliver new articles based on your needs. An example of such is handling datetimeoffset values which appeared to be a topic of high interest, so we created an article and example that illustrate how to manage it in your applications.
