If you want to create an ASP.NET MVC application with Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Html helpers, refer to Creating New Projects.

The Basics

The steps to start the Create New Project Wizard may vary between the different Visual Studio versions. The following instructions describe the steps for Visual Studio 2019.

To create a new Kendo UI for jQuery application, start the Create New Project Wizard by using either of the following approaches:

  • Using the Extensions menu in Visual Studio 2019:

    1. Go to the Extensions menu.
    2. Click Telerik > Kendo UI > Create New Kendo UI Project.
  • Using the File menu in Visual Studio 2019:

    1. Click File > New > Project.
    2. In the search field, type Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5.
    3. Select the Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5 Application project type and click Next.

The wizard detects all the installed versions of Kendo UI and lists them in the Version combobox. This enables you to select a version you want to apply to your project.
