Examples provided by support should be provided in a consistent format

Sometimes when i get examples back from the syncfusion support team they are provided in a range of formats.

Sometimes they are a zip file that contains vs code files, other times it might be a zip file of a visual studio project, sometimes its stackblitz and sometimes its codesandbox. There are other formats i have received too.

I think it would be beneficial for the support team to choose a particular format and then always provide that format so that opening up and testing the provided examples is a lot easier. If we get zip files then we have to unzip, then load them up in the application and then run etc etc. I personally prefer codesandbox (mainly because ive not used other online tools) but think that always providing an online example where we can open it up and see the solution a lot quicker would be a better form of support.

Many thanks

Mike
