          I updated Example from https://github.com/telerik/kendo-examples-asp-net-mvc , "grid-data-source-request-web-api" to Framework 4.6.1

          I get the following and I don't get a clue from object browser or googling:

    The type or namespace name 'WebApiDataSourceRequestModelBinder' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)grid-data-source-request-web-apiP:\grid-data-source-request-web-api\grid-data-source-request-web-api\Controllers\OrdersController.cs23

    Hello Ariel,

    Kendo UI works with .NET Framework 4.6.1. I tried to reproduce the described issue, but the discussed project run as expected, as you can see in the attached video:


    Please make sure that all Kendo files are properly referenced and included, as described in the following section of our documentation:


    For an example of a Kendo UI Grid, bound to WebAPI, you can also check out the webapi demo from the sample application, available with your installation package:


    I hope this helps.

    Yea something is wrong with the kendo.mvc.dll version 2016.6.216 that you get from nuget. It doesn't have the WebApiDataSourceRequestModelBinder.


    I had to use version 2014.2.903.545

    Hi, David,

    The referenced package is not the official version.

    The official version can be downloaded by following these steps:

    - for UI for ASP.NET MVC https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/introduction#download
    - for UI for ASP.NET Core https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-core/introduction#upgrade 

    Kind Regards,
