Hello,

I am so confusing about the Development point of view, which one is better for product Development either UI for ASP.NET MVC or Kendo UI Complete.

one doubt i have also, Telerik Provides UI for ASP.NET MVC so whats new in Kendo UI Complete, because Kendo UI also provides the MVC approach.

if I Choose Kendo UI Complete , so in that case can i use "Telerik.Web.Mvc.dll" for the validation purpose.

can you help in following points-

1. Kendo UI Web=> its Compatible  for Mobile also or forcefully have to select Kendo UI Mobile for separate mobile development.
2. can we use ASP.NET MVC Razor for Mobile Application.
3. whats are difference between UI for ASP.NET MVC and Kendo UI Complete.


Regards,
Dilip

Hello Dilip,

Directly to your questions:
  • Kendo UI Web targets primarily desktop, but it is touch-enabled and will operate properly on mobile devices as well. Specifically for mobile development with adaptive look and feel on different platforms, you can employ Kendo UI Mobile.
  • Yes, you can use MVC Razor views for mobile development. Also note that Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC includes server-side wrappers for Kendo UI Web, Kendo UI DataViz and Kendo UI Mobile.
  • The difference between Kendo UI Complete and UI for ASP.NET MVC is that the latter incorporates ASP.NET MVC server wrappers, which allow you to define your code logic in server code and utilize features of the ASP.NET MVC framework.
Finally, note that Telerik.Web.Mvc.dll is an assembly from a discontinued product (Telerik MVC Extensions). Its successor product code, Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC, resides in Kendo.Mvc.dll.

I share Dilip's frustration about Telerik's marketing department. Why can't you produce a comparison matrix to describe the differences?

Please understand that your customers do NOT share the enthusiasm of your marketing department to create new and shiny brand names on the assumption that we have nothing better to do than learn their facile language ;-)

Hello Will,

I understand your frustration regarding the renaming of products after the rebranding we did in the beginning of the previous year. I understand we missed to communicate that clearly via a comparison matrix on our site, that's why I tried to provide as much details as possible in this forum thread for better transparency, and to compensate partially.

The good news is we have a dedicated blog post regarding the common/overlapping parts and differences between Kendo UI Professional (former Kendo UI Complete) and Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC coming in the upcoming weeks. Its purpose is to help you choose which of the two products will serve you better for building ASP.NET MVC web applications, given the prerequisites/requirements the developer has in for their projects.

Kind regards,
Sebastian
