    I have a view model with some repeating properties that I need to render using the same template.
    I specified the template, and bound the viewModel properties using source binding and data-template attribute.

    It works well, but according to the kendoUI documentation, pre-compiling and reusing of the template makes sense when it should be rendered several times.

    Is there any way to use the advantage of pre-compiled templates along with mvvm (For example, data-template attribute could accept not only the id of the template DOM element, but also model's function name)?

    Hello Pavel,

    The data-template attribute should point to the ID of a script element, as mentioned in the source binding documentation. That being said, using compiled templates along with MVVM is not supported.
