Are there plans to get full strongly-typed helper method support like MVC2 gives?

For example, take a look at the View on this demo. For the TextBox and TextArea, I can just pass the strongly-typed lamda in. However, for the DatePicker, I must both pass in a link to my data (yes, this is strong-typed) but also I must pass in a string for the Name and it must match my model's structure perfectly else I lose the ability to get the data on post (i.e. where I want the full support for the strong-type). In other words, if I have a ViewModel for my view, if I name the DatePicker incorrectly, then that field doesn't post into my ViewModel for my Controller to work with the data, and this is something that would definitely happen if I renamed a property and refactored it through code and didn't realize I had this loosely-typed string for the DatePicker's Name property referring to it as well.

Thanks!

Hmm, is this essentially a duplicate of this post and something that's already implemented, just not yet released?

Hi Andrew,

Strongly typed helpers have been released a few months ago:

Html.Telerik().DatePickerFor(model => model.BirthDate);
Html.Telerik().NumericTextBoxFor(model => model.Quantity);

etc.

Thanks for your rapid reply. It seems I am going slightly mad! I'm sure they didn't show up in intellisense 10 minutes ago (but they do now!). Cheers :-)
