Do I really have to use get() in templates?

It seems to be working both ways but the documentation says to use get() on observable objects. I prefer the conciseness of the first example with direct invocations.  What dangers am I putting myself in by not using get()?


<div data-template="trade-purchase-listing-template1b" data-bind="source: this">
    <script id="trade-purchase-listing-template1b" type="text/x-kendo-template">
        #if (data.current_trade_balance !== null && data.listing.price) {#
            #if (data.current_trade_balance >= data.listing.price) {#

..vs..

<div data-template="trade-purchase-listing-template1b" data-bind="source: this">
    <script id="trade-purchase-listing-template1b" type="text/x-kendo-template">
        #if (data.get('current_trade_balance') !== null && data.get('listing.price')) {#
            #if (data.get('current_trade_balance') >= data.get('listing.price')) {#

Here's how data is initialized: 

model.data = kendo.observable({
    listing: {},
    current_trade_balance: null,
    ....

Hi Sergei,

The get method is used mainly when you want to create dependent ViewModel methods. In your particular case there is no need to use the get method inside the template.
Please feel free to use direct invocations if this syntax is more convenient for you.
