This project was created to help developers work with Telerik Grid for ASP.NET MVC coupled with some mapping techniques to convert Entities objects into ViewModels objects.
If you're one of us, you have to implement CustomBinding in order to query the database reporting some criteria for sort, group and filter the income data, and then convert back the result to a list of ViewModels.
Sounds simple, but can become a very complicated and repetitive task.
So TelerikMvcGridCustomBindingHelper was built in order to automate this process in a very smooth way.
See the version list below for details.
This is a RC (release candidate) version, please test and report any error or problem you encounter.
Warning: There are many changes in this release and some of them break backward compatibility.
