I'm looking at using the client side binding feature in rad grid.  I know that it supports JSON, but I was wondering if it supports plain XML binding?  I currently have a bunch of web services (not WCF or ADO.NET Data services) that return either XML nodes, or Datasets as xml.  Is it possible to bind on the client side directly to these data types, or will I have to convert them to JSON in order for the binding to work?

Hello Christopher,

RadGrid expects JSON to bind on client side. Of course you can implement manual client-side binding and parse the XML returned from the service on client-side and build valid collection of object and populate RadGrid.

I suspected that would be the case.  Is it possible to assign columns and the master table layout programatically on the client side, or do I have to define all those programatically/declaratively on the server side, and just do the data binding on the client?

Hello Christopher,

RadGrid structure must be declared on server prior the client-side binding. You cannot define columns at runtime.
