    I need to know ;-) How are you getting data to Job board sample? Are you using Astoria? Is that the new "Grid View" control being used?

    I want to see the source getting that data?

    It's FAST!

    Hello Ben,

    We are using a WCF service to get the data from the database. The code is really straightforward - nothing unusual, just some Linq to SQL... I suppose that the performance is good because of the underlying SQL server, while the downloadable demo uses SqlServerExpress.

    The problem that I noticed with using Linq2SQL and WCF implementation, that there was not a clean and production ready way for managing and tracking changes to the records. There was not an equivalent of the "server side DataContext" on the client side to communicate the changes on the client to the server. It was good for read only apps but not for a full bi-transaction activities.

    It would be great to use Astoria and EF for this project. Just a thought!

    Most probably we will rewrite the example with the upcoming RadGridView beta and Astoria, which reminds me to answer the question about RadGridView in your first post - no, the example is not using RadGridView, but the standard data grid.
