Hi,
In a scenario like this example here: http://jsfiddle.net/H4kNW/light/ 

How should the schema model be on my datasource when I want to use nested fields like this in my view model:

<input id="first" data-bind="value: Person.FirstName"/>
<input data-bind="value: Person.MiddleName"/>
<input data-bind="value: Person.LastName"/>

I tried:
var schemaModel = kendo.data.Model.define({
    id: "Id",
    fields: {
        Id: { editable: false, type: "number" },
        Person: {
            FirstName: { editable: false, type: "string" },
            MiddleName: { editable: true, type: "string" },
            LastName: { editable: true, type: "string" }
        }
    }
});


But this did not work.  Please advise of the correct way someone?

Much appreciated!

Hi Carl,

I am afraid that currently the dataSource does not support hierarchical structures. The implementation of such functionality is planned, but it will not be available in the next official release.
