Folks,

If I start new development by MVC 5  with VS 2013 Preview that has production licence.
Will I have major problems to integrate Kendo UI  for MVC 5 project when using latest internal build  Kendoui.aspnetmvc.2013.2.823.commercial.zip or should I wait for the Q3?, which will support VS 2013 MVC 5?

Alexander

Hello Alexander,

We intend to support VS 2013 and ASP.NET MVC 5 as soon as they become official, as we don't support frameworks, IDEs or browsers in Alpha/Beta stages.

Therefore, you can use the current latest internal build for testing purposes and report any issues you find to us in order to make sure we address them before we announce official support.

Best regards,
Sebastian

Sebastian,

Thanks for the prompt reply. I was just wondering this as some product are available in VS 2013 Preview such as Decompiler and Tracer but KendoUI or other productivity tools seems not following same beta availability approach.

Anyhow,  its clear and will follow/do manual configuration to KendoUI wrappers.
I believe its pretty much same approach that is used and documented for MVC 4 / VS2012 previously.
Although some places the scripts are located in different files in MVC 5 but anyhow no big deals on there.

If any issues are found I will raise and address them to ensure they are resolved in future version(s).

Can you post the changes?

I get it working, and so far no issues.

I basically follow "Manually add Kendo UI to ASP.NET MVC applications" following the basic copy of files and config file changes.
See the link:  http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/using-kendo-with/aspnet-mvc/introduction

The instructions are for older MVC but I applied them to MVC 5 as follows:

Add following to BundleConfig.cs file 
// create bundle for Kendo UI scripts
           bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/Kendo").Include(
                "~/Scripts/jquery-{version}.js",
            "~/Scripts/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.all.min.js",
            "~/Scripts/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js",
                 "~/Scripts/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.panelbar.min.js",
                 "~/Scripts/kendo.modernizr.custom.js"));
// create Kendo Style Bundle
            bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/Content/Kendo/css").Include(
                    "~/Content/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.common.min.css",
                    "~/Content/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.dataviz.min.css",
                    "~/Content/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.bootstrap.min.css",
                    "~/Content/kendo/2013.2.823/kendo.dataviz.bootstrap.min.css"));
 Added following two lines to _Layout.cshtml right after <head> section following the @ directives style.
@Styles.Render("~/Content/Kendo/css")
@Scripts.Render("~/bundles/Kendo")

Hi folks, are we still tracking for end of november for VS2013 MVC4, or MVC5 support?  We are contemplating making a significant investment in your tooling but, need some visibility on this timeline.
Thank you

Hello,

Kendo UI will be released later this week. It will ship with binaries for ASP.NET MVC 3, 4 and 5. Visual Studio 2013 support will be introduced at a later still not determined stage. We hope we will be ready before the end of the year.

I just downloaded the new 2013.3.1119 release of Kendo UI for ASP.net MVC expecting Visual Studio 2013 support, but it's not there?

When can I expect this to be supported and can you point me to the best practice for manually installing it? (or are the above notes still the best practice?) I ask because I have a quick project to knock out with a mid December deadline for production.

Thank you

Same here. Installation took much longer than normal and no VS 2013 templates or menu items.

I was kind of disappointed comparing the other Telerik products, but to be frank there isn't that much features in  this VS extension. If you having a problem to configure the theme or setting the initial template you could archive it now by creating project in VS2012 and then open it in 2013.   Let’s see end of the year what Telerik brings for this extensions, see the original response highlighted below or in this thread 2 days and 17 hours ago.
