    Just out of curiosity, MVVM tools like Knockout - does Telerik controls work well with these types of frameworks?  Have you done any evaluation of this?

    Hi Brian,

    The Model-View-ViewModel is an architectural pattern that can be implemented by a number of frameworks, based on different technologies. For example Knockout uses JavaScript and ASP.NET MVVM provides a framework to implement the MVVM pattern in ASP.NET projects.

    The RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are designed to be used under the ASP.NET framework and their functionality depends on the Page Life Cycle. If the MVVM pattern is implemented using this technology  the RadControls should work with it, although this is not officially tested and supported.

    As the ASP.NET MVVM framework mentioned above meets these requirements we used it to perform several tests on the behavior of the RadControls in it. It appears that they are functioning correctly, the page events are firing and the implementation of the model view takes care of the data without affecting the standard methods for data binding the controls on the page and without regard of what are the exact controls used for data visualization. As long as the WebSite/WebApplication layer of the project is compatible with the ASP.NET AJAX framework things should work fine.
