Hi B,

 Html.Configurator is used only in the online examples to provide a styled <form> element. It is not required in customer projects and you can safely omit it.

As this topic ranks pretty highly in Google, I assume a lot of people are having the same problem as I.

From the View code at:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/razor/grid/filtering 

@using (Html.Configurator("Filter by ...")
              .PostTo("Filtering", "Grid")
              .Begin())
   {

It is totally unclear as to how to configure this to make it actually work. Can someone give an example that does work, and if possible fix up the example above so that it doesn't refer to an irrelevant class?

Agreed: I wasted quite a bit of time trying to get this to work, which was a reasonable expectation given that the source code was provided as part of a demo.  It would be better if Telerik either fixed the demo so that people could copy the source code and it worked, or for you to include a warning in the demos that the code will give an error.

Hi,

 We never imagined this extension method would be so difficult to understand. It is just a wrapper over Html.BeginForm(). All it does is to add some extra markup and CSS classes. You could really use Html.BeginForm() instead of Html.Configurator().

Thank you guys. Might I suggest including a few comments for the newbies in the examples? We'd rather avoid asking basic questions where possible!

Can you please explain how to get this to work? I added the extension classes to my solution but it is still not working or seeing the methods. Is there something else I need to do?

thanks
