I have a page that has a pie chart and a grid. Both controls use the same data. I could create a data source for each control and have it call the service twice, but that seems inefficient. Is there a way to define the data source for the chart and handle an event when the data is returned and assign the data to the grid's data source?

Which event should be handled?

What's the command to assign the data to the grid's data source?

Thanks

Hello Tim,

A possible way to use the same data source in 2 components (e.g., Grid and a Chart) is to declare the DataSource separately and then pass it to the components. We demonstrate this in the Shared DataSource demo: https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/datasource/shared-datasource 

You can check how the demo is implemented in the demo's View Source tab. In this scenario an AutoComplete and a Grid share a DataSource,  which makes possible populating both components, with a single request to the server.
