    Pretty new to MS ASP.NET Web Application development

    Installed Telerik MVC in VS CE2015

    Now for New web project I see listed

    • ASP.NET Web Application
    • Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5 Application <- new option
    • Telerik ASP.NET MVC Application <- new option

    Can someone explain the differences between "Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5" and "Telerik ASP.NET MVC" and which would be preferable for developing an intranet web application for dealing with data collected off of lab instruments.  There will be a couple master/detail pages needed for concepts such as item test results (property result), specifications (property min/max) and standards (property min/max).

    Hello Richard,

    The difference between the two project types is that:

    • Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5 Application enables you to create an ASP.NET MVC app with the  Kendo UI client widgets - the Kendo.Mvc.dll is not included and you should include it manually in the generated app if you want to use the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC server components (these
      are actually the Kendo UI server wrappers). 
    • Kendo.Mvc.dll is a ASP.NET MVC assembly which contains the code for the Kendo UI server wrappers for ASP.NET MVC. You can find information about the Kendo UI client widgets and MVC server wrappers in the documentation.
    • Telerik C# ASP.NET MVC application allows you to create an ASP.NET MVC app with the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC components. The Kendo.Mvc.dll is included and referenced and you can directly start to use and configure the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC components.

    It is up to the developer and his/her project requirements to decide whether the app will be implemented mainly on the client using the Kendo widgets or on the client and the server with the Kendo server wrappers (UI for ASP.NET MVC).

    Best regards,
    Rumen
