Three ways to get started with KendoUI Grids on ASP.NET MVC

— Disclaimer: I do not work for KendoUI (Telerik) and I am not getting anything in return for this entry… I just like the library 😉

Over the past months I have been evaluating the KendoUI library and using it on my pet projects. I really like it, is evolving very fast and has good community around it.

KendoUI Grids are very flexible and can be used in many different ways. In this post I will show how you can get started with KendoUI grids on your ASP.NET MVC Projects., I will show you three different ways I have used them, which include Creating the Grid starting from a basic ASP.NET MVC List Template, Creating the grid over an empty div with a remote data source, and finally, how to create a grid using KendoUI templates.
