MVC Controls Toolkit is a complete set of advanced server controls for
MVC 2-4 ranging from a templated edit-on line datagrid to date-picker and custom formatted textboxes, supporting client validation and
globalization. MVC Controls Toolkit makes it easier to define new complex controls for MVC without defining custom binders to read back the input from the Controls because each
control enables the MVC engine to call its own handler to bind properly the input to the view model. Thus, there is no need to adapt the controller to a
control or to define ad hoc controllers.
Main object of the project
Enabling MVC programmers to implements rich user interfaces without renouncing to the separation of concerns between the View Model that defines just What data to display and the View that defines
How to display those data: in particular in no case the choice on how to display data in a View must force the programmer to change the View Model.

- Controls code appears only in the Views not in the Controllers, thus keeping separation of concerns between View (How to display) and controller (What to display)
- When possible multi-parts controls are not rendered as a single piece, but the View designer has the freedom to display its parts separately whererever he prefers. Moreover, the View designer has the possibility to render only the parts
it needs, if this makes sense.
- Defining new controls with the same features of the pre-defined controls is straightforward, see here.
