Hello all,

I'm sure this is something simple I'm doing wrong. I am trying to create a data connection to an Blogger.com RSS connection. I'm able to get it working with simple jQuery .ajax connection, but it's not working with the KendoUI datasource. I'm sure I'm forgetting something in the KendoUI connection, perhaps a configuration option or something.

The error I'm getting is: " Uncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'slice' ".

I'm sure I'm not the first one wanting to connect to an blogspot/blogger.com RSS feed.

In the end, if I have to use the .ajax method, I suppose I can, it will ultimately be using in Icenium....but I'd prefer to stick to the Kendo API as much as possible so everything works together nicely as I will be using it in Views and with the Drawer and other Icenium functionality.

Working jQuery Code:

    var loadDefault = $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        dataType: 'jsonp',
        contentType: 'application/jsonp',
        url: "http://www.threelas.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=json-in-script&max-results=55&callback=?",
        data: "",
        success:  function (data) {
            for (var i = 0; i < data.feed.entry.length; i++) {

                var postTitle = data.feed.entry[i].title.$t;
                var postContent = data.feed.entry[i].content.$t;

                console.log(data);
            }
        }
    });


NOT WORKING KENDO UI:

var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
        transport: {
            read: {
                type: "GET",
                dataType: 'jsonp',
                contentType: 'application/jsonp',
                url: "http://www.threelas.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=json-in-script&max-results=55&callback=?",
                data: ""
            }
        },
        change: function (e) {
            //var view = this.view();
            console.log('got here');
            console.log(this); // displays "Chai"
        }
    });
    dataSource.read();



Thank you in advance for any help... :)

Hi David,

You have not specified schema for the DataSource and if it receives data in unexpected format, it would not know how to handle it. See similar problem resolved in this Kendo forum thread.
