In my server side code I fetch the data to be displayed in the grid and it's returned as an IEnumerable. Can I use this as a datasource and if so how would I do this server side?

The KendoUI Grid is not bound to a Model. You have to bind it to JSON or ODATA client side. I just uploaded a sample to the Kendo Code Library showing how to do this in MVC.

I load an IEnumerable object up and return it as JSON:

return Json(person, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

Kendo example can be found here:

I actually found the answer to this in one of the Telerik videos. You can simply pass it in as a javascript array.

	dataSource:
	{
		data: sessions,
		serverSorting: true
	}

Does the dataSource have to be an IEnumerable, or can I bind to a single entity?
