I am looking into migrating from an EF backend to an EF core backend which I already have stood up. I seem to be running into an issue though when retrieving data from the front end. I keep getting a bad response payload from the QueryableDataServiceCollectionView when I make my data calls. Is this the collection I should be using or should I be using something different?

Hello Josh,

With the currently presented information, I am not sure that I can correctly pinpoint the reason behind the bad payload when using the RadDataServiceDataSource control.

As an alternative, may I ask if you could give the RadEntityFrameworkCoreDataSource control a try, instead of RadDataServiceDataSource? I am suggesting this because the RadEntityFrameworkCoreDataSource is a great choice when using Entity Framework Core to retrieve the data. The control supports filtering, sorting, grouping, paging, editing, and more.

More information regarding the RadEntityFrameworkCoreDataSource control and supported features can be found at the following link:

I hope the provided information will be of help to you.

I seem to be unable to add that control. I was looking at it but I don't have access to the reference for it. I did find that my payload was in fact not coming back as odata context but just plain json. I have updated my service accordingly and I am able to retrieve data properly now though. Thanks!
