    Hi all,

    I've seen all of the 4 episodes of the Getting Started with the Kendo UI for ASP.Net MVC, however I can't seem to figure out how to set up a DataSource with a Generic ObjectList.

    This is the piece of code I currently have:

    public JsonResult Get([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request)
                Runner runner = new Runner();
                Task<List<CustomOrder>> customOrderResult = Task.Run(async () => await runner.GetCustomOrders().ConfigureAwait(false));
                List<CustomOrder> customOrders = customOrderResult.Result;

    I know it ain't perfect. Going to refactor it as soon as I got it working properly.

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Hi Michael,

    There are several demos that showcase how to bind the Grid on the server to a generic list. Consider the grid edit demo for example. Take a look at the EditController.cs class for details on the suggested implementation.
