To use Kendo UI datasource, we would pull JSON data from asp.net pagemethods and webmethods.  We have a JavaScript function that calls the server to get this data, but the function also handles issues such as:
  • removing the aspx returned 'd' variable in the JSON
  • converting microsoft's 'date' variables into date vars
  • handling forms authentication timeouts (we pop a login dialog when this happens, then retry the call)
  • handling server timeouts, and retrying the call automatically x number of times (this happens a lot)
Are there events or configuration features in the data source object to allow us to continue to use our code to handle these issues, and still take advantage of all the cool CRUD features in the data source object?
