    Wehave built an application for my company and the application is in production. The application is an ASP.NET Webforms application. We are using radgrid and all other controls on almost every page of the application. Recently we decided to implement knockout js in the project. We are learning knockout js and looking for some good learning resources, so that we can use radgrid and other controls to talk to knockout js code. Can anyone help?

    Hello Jo,

    We do not test or support KnockoutJS with the UI for ASP.NET AJAX suite and so we do not have any resources on the matter (primarily because there is no integration between the suites so the native approaches from KnockoutJS will not work with the WebForms controls we provide).

    What I can suggest you look into is

    • the client-side API of the controls (usually found under the Client-side Programming section in the documentation for example the grid's starts here)
    • client-side binding options provided by various controls (for example, here is the first grid's article and here is the first demo)

    Generally, make sure to review the entire sections because they usually offer a lot of details, alternative approaches and information.

    As an alternative I can also suggest you look into the Kendo UI suite because it offers pure client-side widgets based on jQuery and also provides certain MVVM features that you may find useful.
