I am having difficulty finding an example for binding the Kendo UI Grid for MVC 4 to a DataTable when using the ASPX view engine.

I reviewed the example in this forum http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/binding-to-datatable-0191a594e359 and I am finding other examples using the Razor view engine.

Unfortunately, the MVC project to which I am assigned is very large and it is not a priority to convert to the Razor view engine at this time.  The priority is a conversion from MVC 2 to MVC 4 and it was expected the upgrade will go more quickly to stay with the ASPX view engine until a later date.

The requirements are
1. Stick with the ASPX view engine for now and 
2.  Upgrade the controls to work with MVC 4 (for this we are using the latest Kendo UI for MVC 4).

The binding scenario is to pull the DataTable from a session object called "GridResults" (That's right, it's not returned by the controller directly).

We also need to add the DataKeys to the grid when binding to the session-held DataSource.

If there are any examples of binding to a session DataSource returning a DataTable it would be appreciated.  Adding data keys would be a bonus.

Thank you

Hi John,

Find attached a simple ASP.NET MVC project that shows DataTable binding with the ASPX view engine.
