    The add method in this sample updates the local data source. Is there anyway this sample can work with a remote data source (configured using transport property). It only adds to my local collection.

    Hello Anil,

    In this sample the DataSource is configured for using hard-coded list of items, which is why the add method modifies only the local data array.
    // A hard coded list of items to render
    var tasks = [
      { id: 1, done: false, description: "do stuff"},
      { id: 2, done: false, description: "more stuff"},
      { id: 3, done: true, description: "this stuff to do"},
      { id: 4, done: false, description: "that stuff we need"}
    // Build the data source for the items
    var dataSource = new{ data: tasks });

    If you want use remote data, you should bind the DataSource to remote data via Ajax transport.
    This demo demonstrates CRUD operations with remote transport. Pressing the "Add new record" will basically add new empty item in the DataSource.
