sorry but answer didn't really help me.
First it leads me to a post about KendoUI (JS) while I'm asking about the MVC wrapper.
Second the post shows no "demo" - instead it ends with "...still a bug..open a ticket".
Maybe I didn't ask precise enough. Let me retry it:
There is a demo for ASPX which shows ho to persist and load the settings.
HOW can this be done in MVC?
