This is probably a simple question, but I can't seem to find an answer for it. In a nutshell, I would like to create a a Kendo UI grid in an Asp.net MVC 5 application that receives data from a WebApi without having any WebApi (server side) kendo code.
For example, this is my current implementation (that works).
(1) I have an Asp.net Mvc 5 web application that has the client side code:
So, right now the grid is created in my Index view, and is handled in my MVC controller. My MVC controller builds an HttpClient and then consumes my WebApi, and everything works fine.
Is there a way to use the Kendo().Grid HTML helper to consume the Web Api, while still using my Asp.net MVC controllers. Essentially, I would like to eliminate the need for me to build an Http Client to consume the Web Api, and instead have Kendo().Grid do it for me.
Thanks for all the help!
