Getting Started Series on Kendo UI Wrappers for ASP.NET MVC

Kendo UI is a flag ship product from Telerik. Kendo UI is everything you need to build super-fast HTML5 web apps. It is a JavaScript UI library and has only one dependency and that is JQuery. With Kendo UI, gone are the days of slow and server heavy web UI page creations. Using Kendo UI you can build web apps in one compact easy-to-use package which includes: UI Widgets, Data Source, Validation and MVVM Framework. As you can see Kendo UI is one package you need and nothing else to cater to your UI needs.

Kendo UI doesn’t just stop at being a client side UI framework. If you are one of those many who love server side programming, we do have Kendo UI Server Side Wrappers for ASP.NET MVC development. These wrappers help you produce Awesome HTML5 apps powered by Kendo UI without forcing you to write javaScript. Simply program on the server and the Kendo UI wrappers will handle the HTML and JavsScript.

Here is a example of Kendo UI JavaScript Widgets Vs Kendo UI Server Side Wrappers code:

JavaScript:

   1: <div id="calendar"></div>

   2: <script>
   1:

   2:     $(document).ready(function() {

   3:         // create Calendar from div HTML element

   4:         $("#calendar").kendoCalendar();

   5:     });

</script>

Kendo UI Wrapper for ASP.NET MVC:

   1: @(Html.Kendo().Calendar().Name("kcal"))

As you can see the wrappers makes it easy for you to write code in Razor or ASP.NET syntax and without forcing you to write JavaScript.
