  • Blog Post: Telerik has released some sample field template controls for Dynamic Data

    One of the very cool extensibility points of Dynamic Data is our field template mechanism. In the existing data controls like GridView and DetailsView when the controls render a column they use some build in classes like BoundField, CheckBoxField, etc to display the column. These are not very extensible...

    I thought I would write a post that describes all of the things that Dynamic Data provides to developers. Dynamic Data provides a scaffolding mechanism through templates but scaffolding is just a MINOR subset of the feature set we provide. I’m not trying to downplay the power of scaffolding but...
