text input field with datasource for remote json update operations

I would like there to be a simple input field that allows a datasource to be attached. This would support update database operations to be sent as JSON to the desired URL, much like grid or gantt do.

Seems a bit of an oversite that you don't have this on, given the width and breadth of your other controls.

Hello Dale,

Kendo UI widgets that support binding can bound using the DataSource. The DataSource is designed to work with a collection of objects, that is why the widgets that use it (Grid, Gantt, DropDownList, ComboBox, MutliSelect, etc.) also display collections of items. Input fields on the other hand are not Kendo UI widgets, thus they cannot use the DataSource.

For binding inputs to data consider using Kendo UI MVVM. It can be used with remote data, see this demo for example.
