    RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX client-side databinding to OData services

    October 26, 2010 Share
    RadGrid's client-side databinding capabilities got boosted to a new level with the Q3 2010 release of Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. RadGrid now supports automatic databinding to OData web services. For those of you who have never heard, OData (short for Open Data) is a data exchange protocol that enables data transactions to be carried over standard web protocols (HTTP, Atom, and JSON). OData exposes your data over the web to a variety of consumers, building on technology that is widely adopted. With the Q3 2010 release, we have added automatic client-side databinding support for OData services. To configure RadGrid for binding to an OData service, you...

    RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX SEO Paging with Routing in ASP.NET 4.0

    URL Routing with ASP.NET 4.0 has never been easier. While it was first a luxury of ASP.NET MVC, WebForms applications got routing support with .NET 3.5 SP1. With version 4.0 of the framework, setting up URL routing is now a piece of cake. For those of you who have never heard of it: URL Routing enables your application to use URLs that do not directly map to physical files, but can instead represent a user-friendlier, more descriptive, logical structure. It is not URL rewriting and not URL mapping, where these effectively restore the original physical URL of the page down the request pipe. With version 2010.Q2 of Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX,...

    Column Animations for RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    Coming with 2010.Q2 release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX is some eye candy for RadGrid users. In fact, never has an HTML grid been more interactive. RadGrid column animations will have your column headers fly around when you reorder columns or drag them over to the group panel. To get an idea of what column animations really are, try reordering some columns in Windows Explorer on Windows 7: What you get is a nice animation where headers move aside to make room for the dragged header. The idea is the same with RadGrid too. You drag one header to reorder the columns and the rest of the headers move...

    Scroll And Slider ToolTip Extenders for RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    ASP.NET Extender Controls are cool. They allow you to add rich client capabilities to other server controls. The ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit is a wonderful example of unleashing the power of extenders to give regular ASP.NET server controls rich client capabilities. We tried this approach to further enrich RadGrid's otherwise quite solid set of client functionalities. The result is even richer. The sample project attached contains 2 custom extender controls that can be used with RadGrid. The two are similar in purpose, but different in usage. GridSliderToolTipExtender The GridSliderToolTipExtender is used with RadGrid's Slider pager. It provides you with a handy tooltip that is dynamicaly loaded over the RadSlider when you slide...

    RadGrid for ASP.NET Ajax and LINQ

    One of the most-asked questions when it comes to the ASP.NET Ajax RadGrid is "How do I improve performance?". We have covered this in some Webinars and videos that can be found on Telerik TV in a series which has been released in three parts: Part One, Part Two and Part Three. One thing I wanted to bring up with respect to performance is the usage of LINQ (Language Integrated Query) and our RadGrid. Although LINQ has been out since the initial release of .NET 3.5 I still receive quite a few questions when it comes to using it with our...
