    I apologize in advance if this is not the correct part of the forum to post this in.

    We have a WCF service running on a server accessible from the internet (which we already use for other things).

    Our current idea is to create a small mobile app using Kendo.  The app would call one of the WCF methods to fill in a "list" (e.g. a list of fruits, etc).

    As I understand it, Kendo uses html5/css and javascript.  So I guess the question is are we able to do this using kendo?  Have a mobile app call a WCF method (assume for now it has internet access, we will add a check for that later on) and take the returned data to display on the app/page?

    Thank you in advance for the information

    Hi Remrick,

    In order to achieve this scenario it is recommended to use a mobileListView in combination with a dataSource - the framework component responsible for fetching a remote data. In this online demo you could find an example that uses this approach in action.

    In addition, please check the dataSource documentation and this code library project as they will give you a guidance for connecting your Kendo Mobile application to the WCF service.

    I hope this information will help.

    Kind regards,
