Hi

 I'm attempting to wire up a Kendo grid to a web api.  I found two great examples on the site: here and here.

 Basically says configure the data source like this:

 

.DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
            .WebApi()
            .Model(model =>
            {
                model.Id(product => product.ProductID); // Specify the property which is the unique identifier of the model
                model.Field(product => product.ProductID).Editable(false); // Make the ProductID property not editable
            })
            .Create(create => create.Url(Url.HttpRouteUrl("DefaultApi", new { controller = "Products" }))) // Action invoked when the user saves a new data item
            .Read(read => read.Url(Url.HttpRouteUrl("DefaultApi", new { controller = "Products" }))) // Action invoked when the grid needs data
            .Update(update => update.Url(Url.HttpRouteUrl("DefaultApi", new { controller = "Products", id = "{0}" })))  // Action invoked when the user saves an updated data item
            .Destroy(destroy => destroy.Url(Url.HttpRouteUrl("DefaultApi", new { controller = "Products", id = "{0}" }))) // Action invoked when the user removes a data item
      )

 

 I'm using version 2016.1.112 and .WebApi() isn't available.  Any idea how the hook the data source to a web api without it?

Hi,

WebApi() should be available. Please try to clean and rebuild. Maybe the Visual Studio editor is not refreshed.

It appears that .WebApi() was the same as .Ajax(), and probably why it was removed, so calling .Ajax() works.
