I have been working on this the last few days, and am very new to Javascript and Kendo UI.  I have created my WCF and it is working fine. When I go to the URl/FunctionName I get a list of the Employee data returned.  Below is a paste of that data...


However, when I try to get this data using my ASP.NET website project, it does not load correctly.  I dont know if I am doing something wrong in the filling of the grid, or the calling of the WCF itself, so I decided to try to ask here as I am out of ideas.  The errors that come up in Chrome debugger are as follows...

"OPTIONS http://localhost:27689/Service1.svc/GetDataUsingDataContract?_=1398887165670 405 (Method Not Allowed) jquery-1.9.1.js:9597
XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://localhost:27689/Service1.svc/GetDataUsingDataContract?_=1398887165670. Invalid HTTP status code 405"

However, when I click on the http://...... it shows on the browser fine.

Below is a copy of my Web Page Markup. If anyone could please tell me what I am doing wrong, it would be much appreciated.  Below the markup of my page, I am also going to put the Interface of my WCF, the Config of the WCF and the code behind the interface so that just in case that is the issue, someone will have it available to help.  Thanks.

I did see that when I try the folliwng code, in the Chrome Console, that the object is returned from the browser fine.

$.getJSON('http://localhost:27689/Service1.svc/GetDataUsingDataContract', function (data) {
//Parse your JSON object into a Javascript object
yourJSONObject = jQuery.parseJSON(data);

for (var i = 0; i < yourJSONObject.Comment.length; i++) {
safeLogger(yourJSONObject.Comment[i].LastName + ", "
+ yourJSONObject.Comment[i].FirstName);

Is there a way to use this yourJSONObject to fill the Kendo Grid and not read from the URL in creation?  Would this solve my problem? If so, can someone help me with code on how to do that?  Thanks.

Hello Steve,

Yes it is possible to bind the Kendo Grid to an array of JavaScript objects. You need to set the data option of its data source:

   dataSource: {
         data: yourJSONObject

You can also set it after the grid has been initialized:

var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");;
