    i'm struggling with the Kendo ListView.
    I want to define the Templates with MVC standard DisplayTemplate and EditorTemplates.
    But since the support from Telerik does not understand what i want and always pointing me to their demos - which are uselsse - i came here, hopefully there is somebody who can give me an answer about that.
    we simply want to use Item Templates for the ListView control.
    i dont want to use the Telerik Template language, since its not possible to access complex types (Navigationproperties).
    has anybody an idea if its possible in general?
    and if yes - are there any examples around?
    thanks & best regards

    Hello Mike,

    As it is explained in the Overview of Server-Side Wrappers article the server side wrappers: 

    • Allows you to configure a Kendo UI widgets via the C# or VB.NET code—to set its value, data source, etc.
    • Renders the HTML and JavaScript needed to initialize a Kendo UI widget. The widget options propagate to the client-side via the widget initialization script.

    So basically eventually the Kendo UI ListView (JavaScript) is initialized and the binding to the template is performed on the client-side using the kendo template. 

    Could you please elaborate a bit more on your data and why the kendo template does not work for your case?
