I'm learning Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX now and I want to know how to use it with an external back-end RESTful API.
Correct me if I'm wrong... Since it is a framework to help us build the UI (front-end), there should be ways to bind the back-end to "give live" to the UI.
I was specting to see some pretty simple straight forward ways to bind data coming from my REST API, but every forum, blog, tutorial that I read so far presents a "hack" to do it.
For instance, the most basic thing... I want to load data to a RadComboBox from my API.
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="regTypeComboBox" runat="server" Width="305" Skin="Telerik" />
How can I use "http://maydomain.com:8080/mycompany/api/registerTypes" to populate my RadComboBox?
