    I want to load the grid from an offline source like in this example, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12980444/caching-a-kendo-ui-datasource-object-using-localstorage.   However that example is using KendoUI directly, whereas I am creating the grid using the MVC HtmlHelper.  In the helper there is no overload on the Read method on the DataSource to specify a javascript function.  How do I do the equivalent with the HtmlHelper, or do I need to mix and match?

    Hi Scott,

    JavaScript method can be set for the Read property using custom ClientHandlerDescriptor.

    .Transport(new {
       read = new Kendo.Mvc.ClientHandlerDescriptor() {HandlerName = "customRead" }

    function customRead(options) {

    You can find additional information here: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/aspnet-mvc/custom-datasource#custom-datasource
