It is possible to cancel the asynchronous call to database query or some other action if the time limit is reached or due to another problem. This is achieved by passing a CancellationToken parameter to the ToDataSourceResultAsync method of the DataSource instance.

In real-case scenarios, developers usually have also to consider other factors like Connection Time Limit, Invalid Input, etc. To help with this task, we exposed the capability to also pass a CancellationToken parameter which comes handy in this type of scenarios.


    public async Task<ActionResult> EditingInline_Read([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request)
        CancellationTokenSource source = new CancellationTokenSource(2000);
        CancellationToken token = source.Token;

        var result = await GetOrders().ToDataSourceResultAsync(request, token);
        return Json(result);

    private List<OrderViewModel> GetOrders()
        return Enumerable.Range(0, 50).Select(i => new OrderViewModel
            OrderID = i,
            Freight = i * 10,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(i),
            ShipName = "ShipName " + i,
            ShipCity = "ShipCity " + i
