    I think I am going loopy, because this should be working. I've tried every possible way of instantiating a scheduler widget. I can get the widget to return events if I use the MVC wrapper or even a straight copy and paste of the demo's using the jsonp data type.

    But do you think i can get the json data type to work. Here is my code thus far.

    var dsSchedule = new{
    transport: {
             read: {
                url: '/api/Schedule/JobBoard',
                dataType: 'json',
          schema: {
             model: {
                id: 'taskId',
                fields: {
                   taskId: { from: "TaskID", type: "number" },
                   title: { from: "Title", defaultValue: "No title", validation: { required: true } },
                   start: { type: "date", from: "Start" },
                   end: { type: "date", from: "End" },
                   description: { from: "Description" },
                   recurrenceId: { from: "RecurrenceID" },
                   recurrenceRule: { from: "RecurrenceRule" },
                   recurrenceException: { from: "RecurrenceException" },
                   isAllDay: { type: "boolean", from: "IsAllDay" }

          date: new Date(),
          startTime: new Date(),
          height: 600,
          views: ["day", { type: "workWeek", selected: true }, "week", "month", "agenda"],
          dataSource: dsSchedule

    If directly tried setting the dataSource as the widget is instantiated or later as per the following

    var scheduler = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");

    Both methods trigger the SchedulerDataSource to fetch the data

    AggregateResults: null
    Data: [,…]
    Attendees: null
    Description: null
    End: "2014-08-01T23:59:00Z"
    EndTimezone: null
    IsAllDay: false
    JobId: 64
    RecurrenceException: null
    RecurrenceID: null
    RecurrenceRule: null
    Start: "2014-07-30T00:00:00Z"
    StartTimezone: null
    TaskId: 166
    Timezone: null
    Title: "Full engine rebuild and clean-up"
    Errors: null
    Total: 1

    But yet the schedule does not display the event. I am obviously missing something and there are no demo's of the web scheduler using json. If someone could lead me in the right direction, that would be great.

    I may have answered my own post after reading a post very similar to this.

    The answer showed the correct json result. According to the demo's, the api method returns a DataSourceResult. this added extra properties to the result. I guess this requires clarification whether the additional "Errors" and "Total" properties are required by the widget.
