I using a demo copy of your Winforms Rad Control for testing and evaluation.  My issue is when I'm using one of your radforms my data sources window will not allow me to drag and drop Entity framework 6 data sources onto your forms. Can you tell me how to resolve this issue please ?

Hi Neil,

Thank you for contacting us.

This is not supported with our form. This feature is only adding a grid and binding navigator to the form (by default). To achieve the same in RadForm you should drag and drop RadGridView onto the form and use its smart tag to select the data source. Detailed information is available here: Tutorial: Binding to DataTable or DataSet.

Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.

Hello Neil,

Thank you for writing back.

We have an article that shows how you can bind the grid to entity framework as well: Binding to EntityFramework using Database first approach.

Let me know if you have additional questions.
