Hi,

I am looking for a library to purchase to help me build web and mobile applications. I am not a guru programmer like of you guys. I have experience of working with ASP.NET, C#, EntityDataSource, EntittyFramework and SQL Server.

I have downloaded the trial version of Kendo UI  to try and learn how to use the  Scheduler  and your JavaScript library with ASP.NET. 

However, the source code you provided only contains the HTML files but not the full Scheduler Visual Studio application. I have checked the code provided and you are calling  your server for CRUD operations:

transport: {
                read: {
                    url: "http://demos.kendoui.com/service/tasks",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                update: {
                    url: "http://demos.kendoui.com/service/tasks/update",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                create: {
                    url: "http://demos.kendoui.com/service/tasks/create",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                destroy: {
                    url: "http://demos.kendoui.com/service/tasks/destroy",
                    dataType: "jsonp"

I would like to have the services, database and entity framework all locally so I can see how it all works and learn how to use Kendoui with Visual Studio.

Could you please advise me where I can download a FULL Demo including the database to use with the Scheduler?

Cheers

CP

HI

Agree with this request entirely. I have spent many, not totally, fruitless hours, but frustrating hours on this wonderful widget. Hungry to apply all the practical line of business implentations I can think of and propose , but here's where I get a little stuck:

The back end, lets face it, remote is the only real way to go, is somewhat always a mystery to me that ends up
with a myriad wild goose chases!

It would be of enormous benefit to me, and others I am sure, those in the "not coding gurus" department, more the "oh, how I can leverage this great widget in practical terms without resorting to despair", if we could just be provided with working "simple" back end code (in my case webapi and odata please), as well as the wonderful and inspiring client samples. I have been through all the current back end implementations samples for the GRID. I need this great scheduler to be my currency. Hard work. Please please package the whole, not just the front end. This way we can make these great components sing to business is if we can make them sing ourselves and I get 80% there.. I realise the core of the back end http://demos.kendoui.com/service.. etc is proably all tied up in the massive vs samples/demos but I just don't get how. I need to turn these things into product with becoming a c# einstein. And rapidly, which is the whole point aint it.

I'm not whinging, I love your products, so much so I want to be able to fully leverage their potential. So I second wholeheartedly the request for fully specific examples so we can make ends meet and power forward.

PS So is the code for demos.kendo...   task meetings etc anywhere. By itself, with out the hundreds of other widgets. Sorry if this makes the "coding gurus" groan.

Long live out of the box!

Hi Andrew,

I agree with everything you said. The point of purchasing a library is to make things easier for us. Therefore, we need full sample code to be able to figure out how to use the library.

For example, I am trying another library from Infragistics and they provide the full visual studio CRUD source code  with their schedule web application including the database for you to learn how to use it.

However their schedule app seems much older and more difficult to use than Kendoui's one.

It should not be difficult for the developers in the Kendoui team to provide us with real world application source code for the schedule and other widgets. They should be able to do that in half a day.

Therefore, I would like to again ask the Kendoui team to provided full sample code for the schedule application. 

Cheers

Hi Claudio,


Please note that it's not possible to ship the demo service with "KendoUI for Web" offline demos as they should be platform independent (e.g. if we ship C# service clients that use PHP, JSP as server side will complain), however as you have an experience with C# I would strongly suggest to check the KendoUI for ASP.NET MVC wrappers which comes with complete offline demos (SQL DataBase, EntityFrameWork, MVC and WebApi). For more information about the wrappers you can check the following help topics:


Also I would suggest to check our CodeLibrary demos which contains standalone examples of using KendoUI in different scenarios: 

Kind Regards,
