We have a scenario where we want to ease into Kendo UI, but have a project that needs to remain on ASP.NET 2.0 Web Forms for a good few months before upgrading (it will still be web forms for a while, before the MVC move).

Basically we need to have a Kendo UI grid initialized with seed data in the form of JSON and allow the user to perform Pop-up Inline Editing (like http://demos.kendoui.com/web/grid/editing-popup.html), but without saving that data back to the server after each edit.  

The user's need to have the ability to see their changes in the data immediately reflected in the grid, but we plan on trying to fit this into a post-back styled architecture by reading the JSON data from the datasource (after it's updated with changes from the user) and copying that to a hidden field which can by POSTed back to a form location (and later on we can change this action to send data to a web service).

Are there any examples of a Kendo UI Grid where the data is edited locally and read out into something (e.g. copied to another JavaScript variable or hidden form field) on item/row update without interacting with a service boundary?

It would greatly ease the decision if something similar or exactly this scenario could be posted/provided on this thread showing that Kendo UI can work with this.

Thanks!
