    I've tried some of the examples with no success.  Here is my code for "manageDonor.cshmtl" and output.
    Code files are attached.
    Using Chrome.  a very nice grid appears on the page, but it has only a single empty line saying  "No items to display" Chrome not showing any script errors.
        var dbRenewal = Database.Open("RenewalDataConnection");
        var sql = "SELECT donorID, title, firstname, middlename, lastname, address, city, state ,zipcode, homephone, workphone, cellphone, email FROM donor";
        var data = dbRenewal.Query(sql);
        var json = Json.Encode(data);

    [{"donorID":152,"title":"title","firstname":"firstname","middlename":"Middlename","lastname":"lastname","address":"100 Main Street","city":"Los Angeles","state":"CA","zipcode":"90067","homephone":"3105528809","workphone":"3105528809","cellphone":"3105528809","email":null},{"donorID":157,"title":"Rabbi","firstname":"Yehuda","middlename":"Lein","lastname":"Smith","address":"100 Main Street","city":"Los Angeles","state":"CA","zipcode":"91678","homephone":"3105528809","workphone":"3105528809","cellphone":"3105528809","email":null}]

    Hello Aron,

    I have looked at the code you have provided and found the following issues related to the problem you have described:

    - You are assigning a DataSource instance as a data to another DataSource instance (donorDataSource is set as data of the dataSource). This is not valid nor supported.
    - In order to have paging when binding to remote data, the returned response should contain the a field with the total number of records. Also you should describe the response's data and total fields in the schema.

    All the best,
