Telerik UI for WPF offers two data sources that might be helpful for your scenario:
for WPF. This control is the bridge between components like RadGridView, RadDataPager, RadDataFilter and EntityFramework's
ObjectContext. The control will let you do all operations directly on the server -- paging (Skip and Take), filtering (Where), sorting (OrderBy) and grouping (GroupBy). Simply bind a RadGridView and a RadDataPager to a RadEntityFrameworkDataSource and you will get this out-of-the-box. You will also get CRUD support. You can see the control in action if you open our QSF
and search for RadEntityFrameworkDataSource. The example contains a grid and a pager doing their stuff directly on the server.
for WPF. This one is used to do the same thing but against WCF Data Services
. You can see it in action here under the respective category. You can also check out this blog post
As for your question about Kendo UI - I would suggest you to
