Hi,

I am working with a mobile application, which has a form with many fields(for update functionality) that i like to populate using a MVVM viewmodel. Viewmodel is to be binded with a REST url. Can a datasource be used in this scenario? What is the performance optimized way to populate a form with many fields(with Textboxes, dropdowns, combobox etc.). Please provide a help link for this.

Hi Shalini,

You can use a Kendo UI DataSource as part of a MVVM viewModel, however you will not need the dataSource for populating a form. I would suggest you to check this example, showing source and template binding with MVVM:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/mvvm/source.html

And here is another example that shown a form bound to viewModel:

Please note that if you decide to go with a template, you cannot bind directly a DataSource to it.
