    I am evaluating Telerik ASP.NET MVC for a small shop of C# developers with minimal to no javascript background. In particular the DropDownList event demo (but the same problem applies to many of the demos). The demo link here:


    Now a typical use case for this component for an ASP.NET MVC developer would be to:

    1.Load the DropDownList from an MVC Controller

    2. Detect a selection changed event

    3. Do something with the selected value in an MVC context, such as having an ActionLink in a Razor view to pass the selected item back to the mvc controller as an action param, or calling a GET on an MVC controller from JavaScript with the selected value in order to demonstrate the "full round trip"

     Instead these demos show the bare minimum (outputting to client side log). It would be nice for these demos go the extra mile to show some real non-trivial use-cases in the example code. Sure, you can find the answer to the above stuff by spending half a day in the forums hoping someone else had the same question and searching stackoverflow, etc, but for us the quality and depth of the example code will be the deciding factoring in purchasing a license, thanks

    I second that! Just send a ticket and i'm redirected to the sample directory, where no freaking samples / folders for DropdownList exist.

    This is bad Telerik and I need proper samples to get going with server filtering, and virtualization where i can bind the selected item to my model.

     I am also interested in such an example / demo app.
