    Hi everyone,

    I'm a database engineer new to the ASP.NET MVC world, and recently purchased the Telerik Kendo UI tool kit for ASP.NET MVC in order to transition away from Silverlight. While I appreciate the thoroughness of the examples provided by Telerik, what I would have preferred is individual projects for the various tools. I'm sure those accustomed to working with MVC in general are able to cut through all the chaff and get to what they need, but all I really want is to understand how to use a basic grid for now; I'll build on that understanding later. A project/solution with just a basic grid implementation would save me a lot of time.

    Does anyone know if there is a project repository on Telerik or KendoUI.com that would suit my needs? I've looked through the forums, but figured I'd start asking here before submitting a support ticket.

    Thanks in advance for any help for this novice!

    Hello Nathan,

    There is visual studio solution with the full MVC examples in the Kendo UI distribution package. It is in the \wrappers\aspnetmvc\Examples folder. Additional useful documents could be found in the Getting started section of the documentation.
    E.g.
    Grid Server Binding
    Grid Ajax Binding

    HI Dimiter,

    Thanks for the response. As I indicated in my previous post, though I appreciate the thoroughness of the included example solution, my current knowledge of ASP.NET MVC is rather limited, and gutting said solution to get to what I actually need to include in my own project in order to use a basic grid has proven to be a tedious process.

    While I understand that a certain level of expertise is assumed when using a framework such as Kendo UI, other control sets of similar complexity that I've used in the past have simply been easier to dig in to. I believe it would be extremely helpful for some current and all future customers if your distribution included a single solution with individual projects for the various controls.

    Thanks again for your response, Dimiter. I'll follow up with support.

    Nathan

    Hello Nathan,


    In our online Demos you could find the needed code to get you started with Kendo Grid for MVC (i.e. the files index.cshtml and IndexController.cs for the Basic Usage example). You could try the tutorials from my previous post and send me a sample of you code so I could assist you further if needed.

     

    All the best,

    Hi, Dimiter. I'm in the process now of working through some tutorials, and I'm quite sure I have enough resources at my disposal to suit my needs. Perhaps once I've arrived at a solution, I can send you some code to insure I'm abiding by best practices. Thanks very much for your willingness to help. I'm very impressed by the Telerik tools, and am looking forward to becoming an expert!

    Nathan
