According to support, Kendo will not allow the use of any record Id of "0" (number zero).
This is a major problem for us as all of our tables utilize auto identity generators that start with 0 as the first record. Since Kendo grid (and possibly other components) will behave badly when there is even a record in the data set with an Id of 0, things do not work.
For example, if there is a record Id 0 in the data set and you use a popup editor it will always go to the create operation of the transport instead of the update operation, even when editing records that have a non-zero Id.
Does anyone know of a way to get around this issue with the Kendo tools?
Changing the backend is not an option as we have dozens of installations comprising thousands of tables and millions of lines of code with client developers making additional changes to the applications, so backend changes are not an option.
We planned to use Kendo as an upgraded front end user interface to the backend systems, but if we cannot get around this issue with a reasonable amount of effort, then Kendo is unusable for us.
Thanks for any ideas,
