    I'm new to using Kendo and have tried the following example that allows for a GridView in Virtual Mode to have sorting etc.


    Using the latest version of Kendo with this example, the Grid still throws the 'Operation not supported in Virtual Mode' exceptions.


    Has this functionality been changed / broken / replaced? Whilst I have a virtual mode grid working with a large data source through service interfaces using linq incl. paging, I can't even override the header sorting myself without these exceptions being thrown which kind of makes the grid not very useful for paging large result sets. The articles on the subject saying what to do no longer seem to work unless I'm missing something.

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for writing.

    First I want to mention that this article is for the Telerik UI for WinForms suite and has nothing to do with Kendo. Indeed, with the latest release, this article will not work and will cause an exception. We are aware of this and we are planning to resolve with our next release, by introducing means to overcome this. 

    For the time being the only option is to use Q2 2015, not Q2 2015 SP1.

    I hope that you find this information useful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    Hi Andy,

    The recommended approach now is to use RadVirtualGrid.

    In addition, I have tested the project that is available at the end of the article and it appears to work on my side. Or do I need to perform any specific steps?

    I hope this will be useful.
