    Meet Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX ODataDataSource Control

    It has been a while since we introduced the initial version of the OData binding API for our controls. Despite providing robust OData binding, the old API had one major drawback – it was tedious to configure. A lot of markup was required and there was no design time in order to make developers life easier. Well, this is no longer! I am glad to announce that with Q2 2012 we are shipping our newly baked ODataDataSource control which is intended to replace the old API and provide more robust and straightforward way to consume OData services.

    In the previous series of OData binding related posts we introduced OData support for our Grid, ListView and navigation controls. Well, it is time for a new control to utilize such binding.

    Client-Side Hierarchical DataBinding to OData with RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    If you haven't heard, Odata is a Web protocol that exposes your data to the Web, allowing consumers to make queries through a set of URI parameters. RadGrid, Telerik's ASP.NET AJAX Grid control features a rich client-side API that enables you to easily bind to OData services and have all the paging, sorting and filtering done without ever posting the page to the server. That is all fine if your data is flat. Binding to hierarchical data, however, is another story. RadGrid officially supports hierarchical databinding on the server only. But let's go unofficial for a while. In this blog post we'll demonstrate an approach for detail table databinding...

    The third, and final, episode of the ASP.NET AJAX webinar series took place yesterday.

You can find a list of the questions asked below, and as always if your exact question is not found here then it’s due to a duplicate (or very similar) question.
