     I've created an ASP .NET 5.0 MVC project in Visual Studio 2015 and have attempted to import the Kendo.Mvc dependency using the following configuration:


    "dependencies": {
      "Kendo.Mvc": "2015.3.930",
    "frameworks": {
      "dnx451": { }

    However, unlike my ASP .NET 4.x MVC projects, TextBoxFor and AutoComplete (among others) are not available.  This works for my 4.x projects...


    But, in my 5.0 projects, TextBoxFor and AutoComplete are not found.  Inspecting the Kendo library, I ​saw that they no longer exist in the widget factory.  And, the DLL in the package that is retrieved by Visual Studio is significantly smaller than the DLL that comes with my ASP .NET 4.x projects.

    Is this intended?  And, if so, what alternative would you suggest?

    Hello Tim,

    Some widgets are not yet available for MVC6, these among them. We expect to bring a complete offering for MVC6 once it is officially released, and will bring more wrappers for the Q1 2016 release of UI for ASP.NET MVC.
