    I am experimenting to write a generic data browser for WCF data services.

    When binding to a query result created using "select new" RadGridView does not display any data: 

    Dim q = From o In svc.Orders Select o 'This query displays data

    Dim q = From o In svc.Orders Select New With {o.OrderDate} 'This query does not display data

    RadGridView1.DataSource = q.ToList

    1. How can I use autogenerated columns with "Select New"?
    2. Can the RadGridView automatically diplay hierarchical data from LINQ queries?
      Ex: from c in Customers select new with {CustomerId, c.Orders}

    Hello Peter Meinl,

    The current version of RadGridView does not support LINQ queries. RadGridView shows data which implements IList or IBindingList interfaces. We plan to extend RadGridView to support new data providers and LINQ queries in the future .NET 3.5 editions of our control.
