I've noticed that when you map the id of the model to a different field (e.g.   id: "personID") , the resulting object will actually possess still possess the ID field as well as whatever it was assigned to.

e.g. using the personID example

var test = kendo.data.Model.define({id: "personID"});
t = new test();
Results in: 
{personID: "", uid: "a30e1c16-fc65-4345-980c-4d5ad527348c", dirty: false, id: ""}

My question is what it the use of the id field versus the personID field.  I've noticed the framework updates both fields upon a successful post back. but also that the isNew() function only tiggers of the id field... not the personID field.

Hello Mark,

The id field is intended for internal use. It is used to access the id value no matter what is the name of the ID field in the data.
