I have seen some examples of using server side Kendo extensions to access Web API calls in the same project.  But what about if the Web API is a different project and URL?  We are doing this as an N-Tier where the Web API is the data access for multiple client applications.  Do you have a same using the server side KendoGrid to access a Web API call that is located on a different server/URL?  I can't figure this out.

Here is what I have tried.  Both projects have a reference to the data classes so I hope to send a known type back and forth.  But this doesn't work:

@(Html.Kendo().Grid<CustomerOrderModel>()
    .Name("Grid")    
        .Columns(columns =>
                     {
                         columns.Bound(o => o.OrderNumber);

                         columns.Bound(p => p.Description);

                         columns.Bound(p => p.Description2);

                         columns.Bound(p => p.Notes);

                     })
    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
        .WebApi()        
        .Read(read => read.Url("http://localhost:52559/api/CustomerOrder").Type(HttpVerbs.Get))

    )
)

Hello Jason,

If you are hosting the server on a different server then the requests are considered to be CORS:

To see what needs to be done when it comes to enable CORS requests I would suggest you to check this topic:
