    Take a Walk on the Client Side with WebAPI and WebForms – Part 2

    It has been more than a year since the last time we discussed WebAPI with WebForms, and a lot has changed in that time. Microsoft has released a 1.0 release of WebAPI and Telerik now supports using WebAPI as a client-side datasource for many of our controls. In this article, I will show you how to configure WebAPI to work with one of Telerik’s most popular controls, our Grid for ASP.NET AJAX. Without changing the appearance of the grid, I will convert the grid from server-side databinding to client-side databinding and show you how it supports sorting, filtering and paging with WebAPI.

Almost all the client-side widgets or libraries that you’ll be working with will most likely be utilizing JSON, and sending large chunks of data over the wire as JSON as opposed to other bulky forms of data can lead to some dramatic performance increase across any application. I often come across individuals not sure of what JSON is, or how they can use it today, and I wanted to address this issue in a blog post. Of course I...

    Take a Walk on the Client Side with WebAPI and WebForms

    In my last blog I introduced the basics of using ASP.NET AJAX and WebAPI together in the same project.  In addition, I showed how to bind results from WebAPI to a Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Grid. In this blog I will continue down this path and implement insert, update, and delete operations using WebAPI and RadGrid! Note: While this post focuses on using WebAPI in conjunction with RadGrid, most of the client code can be used when working with RadGrid in client mode.Set It Up! To get started an additional reference needs to be added to the project: System.Net.Http.Formatting Adding this reference allows us...
