I'm Quite new to Telerik, kendo, and HTML(great start, I know), but I'm developing a WebApplication that will disply Oracle - queried data. I am able to bring in the data from a c# class which has the form List<class> where the class has a couple strings and decimals. My question is how can I initialize this list into the grid?, I'm assuming I need to use a script like this:

        $(document).ready(function () {

                height: 550,
                groupable: true,
                sortable: true,
                pageable: {
                refresh: true,
                pageSizes: true,
                buttonCount: 5
                dataSource: {


This is now I initialized by table:
<table id="grid">
            <col />
            <col />
            <col style="width:110px" />
            <col style="width:120px" />
            <col style="width:130px" />
                <th data-field="make">Field a</th>
                <th data-field="model">Field b</th>
                <th data-field="year">Field c</th>
                <th data-field="category">Field d</th>
                <th data-field="airconditioner">Field e</th>

And i bring in my List<Class> like this:

    var info = new DB();
    List<class> data = info.getdata(); //Where info.getdata() is a function of the DB that returns the list<class> of data

Hi Nicholas,

As it seems that the application is build using MVC (and Razor view engine) I would suggest to implement Controller Action which to return the data formatted using ToDataSourceResult extension method and consume it using the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Grid wrapper on the client side. For more information you can check the following additional information: Regards,
