Hi,

Are there any demos aimed at creating a Kendo ASP.NET MVC 4 website that supports both web and mobile (presumably by detecting the browser and/or screen)?  I realize this is typically a server-side issue, but am wondering if there is anything in Kendo that facilitates this dual client development or whether there are proven strategies the people have used when employing Kendo with ASP.NET MVC 4 for a web and mobile website?

thanks,
Derek

Hello Derek,

Although we currently don't have specific demos about how to plug our Kendo UI framework in ASP.NET MVC4 application, the general rules for building web and mobile solutions with ASP.NET MVC 4 and Kendo UI are the following:
  • Use Kendo UI Web + DataViz + their server-side MVC wrappers for the web views of your MVC4 application (to take full advantage of the features included in both suites, plus their server wrappers)
  • Use Kendo UI Mobile + DataViz for the mobile views of the MVC4 application.

Thus you should be able to support both desktop as well as mobile devices having a single MVC4 application that targets them both.

I hope this explanation is helpful.

Best regards,

Dear Sebastian ,

I have used a KenDoUI MVC project template (KendoUI.Mvc.VSPackage.vsix) to create an MVC 4 project. I discovered that all the mobile related files were also added to the project. However I have not been able to get the mobile controls workings. I have attached the HTML source from the mobile view (the solution is about 6 MB and hence just the html response). Perhaps I missed some required include files.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Warm regards,
Krishna
