    I was following the example on the documentation here.

    The code mentions setting the "type" of the datasource to "webapi", but when you do this you get a script warning: "Unknown DataSource transport type 'webapi'.".

            pageable: true,
            sortable: true,
            dataSource: {
                type: "webapi",
                transport: {
                    read: {


    Not sure if this a typo or just out of date.

    Hello Christopher,

    Thank you for reporting this.

    The webapi type is intended to be used with the Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC and it requires the kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js script file.

    More information can be found in the following forum thread:


    I will update the documentation, that the mentioned file is required for this approach.

    Additionally, I updated your Telerik points for bringing this to our attention.
