    I am using Kendo UI for MVC.  I have a string column containing string numbers.  I also have a hidden int column containing the integer version of these numbers.  I would like for the user to sort the string number column, but have the sorting actually take place using the hidden number column.  How would I go about this with Kendo UI for MVC?

    Hi Kevin,

    This can be done by using a column bound to the numeric values that also uses a Template, which actually renders the string values. For example: 
    columns.Add().Field(e => e.NumericField).Width(220).Template("#=NumbersAsText#");
