                        dataSource: {                       
                            schema: {
                                data: "Comuni", total: "TotalCount", // ASMX services return JSON in the following format { "d": <result> }. Specify how to get the result.

                                    contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8", // tells the web service to serialize JSON
                                    type: "POST" //use HTTP POST request as the default GET is not allowed for ASMX
                                parameterMap: function (data, operation) {
                                    if (operation != "read") {
                                        // web service method parameters need to be send as JSON. The Create, Update and Destroy methods have a "products" parameter.
                                        return JSON.stringify({ comuni: data.models})
                             serverPaging: true,                           
                             serverFiltering: true,

            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            public static IEnumerable<Comuni> ListaComuni()
                using (var northwind = new DataClasses1DataContext())
                    var lista = northwind.CAPCOM.Where(row=> row.CapComId<100)
                        // Use a view model to avoid serializing internal Entity Framework properties as JSON
                        .Select(p => new Comuni()
                                            CapComId = p.CapComId,
                                            CapComCod = p.CapComCod,
                                            CapComCom = p.CapComCom
                    return lista;
            public class Comuni

    Hi Aurelio,

    The option serverPaging determines if the paging of the data should be handled on the server. It looks like your method ListaComuni() is returning the whole data and does not implement paging. In order to achieve that I suggest to use the take and skip parameters that are send back to the server. For example:
    public object GetAllPeople(int take,int skip)
        //Sample request payload {"take":10,"skip":10,"page":2,"pageSize":10,"group":[]}
        var result = new
            //get requested page
            data = people.Skip(skip).Take(take).ToList(),
            //get total data count
            total = people.Count
        return result;

    I hope this information will help you to solve the problem.

    I believe I am having the same issue.  I didn't understand the reply, however, as the example code didn't match the requester's initial code. Would it be possible to give an example with the take and skip parameters and how to implement that with the code that was posted by Aurelio?  

    I'm using almost the exact same setup, but my grid loads it doesn't display the correct number of pages, nor does it display the total number of records retrieved.  If I change the paging size within the paging drop down list, then paging starts to work.  I'm hoping with an updated example, that will put me on the right path.  Thanks!

    var lista = northwind.CAPCOM.Where(row => row.CapComId < 100).Skip(skip).Take(take)
                       .Select(p => new Comuni()
                           CapComId = p.CapComId,
                           CapComCod = p.CapComCod,
                           CapComCom = p.CapComCom
