Had a look at the ASPxDataGrid from DevExpress and noticed that it used XHR by default to load data which made it REALLY fast. It almost felt like running a real client side application written in jQuery/Angular/KendoUI or something like that. And this was with no custom coding required or anything like that, just drop it on the page and do databind via an ObjectDataSource and there you had it.  Does Teleriks RadGrid support XHR or something similar so that the grid only has to be loaded once and can then just fetch data? If so, how do we use it (and not having to implement it manually that is)?

Is the RadXmlHttpPanel a solution to this? Can't find anything about it using XHR though?

Hello Patrik,

I am experiencing difficulties understanding the question. If by loading the grid only once you mean avoiding full postback to the server and reloading the entire page in order to populate it, then the answer is yes. In such cases you can use the client-side binding capabilities of the control which can be observed in this demo section.

Another option would be to wrap the grid in a RadAjaxPanel or ajaxify it using a RadAjaxManager thus only partially updating the page.
