Getting Started

This tutorial will walk you through the creation of a sample application that contains RadDataServiceDataSource control.

In order to use RadDataServiceDataSource in your project you need to add references to the following assemblies

  • Telerik.Windows.Controls

  • Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataServices

If you are using OData version 3 you need to add reference to Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataServices50 which is built against Microsoft.Data.Services.Client with version 5.6.4.

Adding RadDataServiceDataSource

We will use RadGridView control in order to visualize the data.

[XAML] Example 1: Using RadDataServiceDataSource with RadGridView

<telerik:RadDataServiceDataSource Name="customersDataSource" QueryName="Products" AutoLoad="True">
    <telerik:RadDataServiceDataSource.DataServiceContext>
        <local:ProductsContext/>
    </telerik:RadDataServiceDataSource.DataServiceContext>
</telerik:RadDataServiceDataSource>

<telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="0" ItemsSource="{Binding DataView, ElementName=customersDataSource}"
                 IsBusy="{Binding IsBusy, ElementName=customersDataSource}" 
                 ShowGroupPanel="False"/>
