Getting Started with WPF DataServiceDataSource

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.

For OData version 4 support, you need to add reference to Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataServices60 which is built against Microsoft.OData.Client with version 6.15.0.

Since the R2 2021 release, you can find a Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataServices dll in the NetCore, WPF60 and WPF70 folders built against Microsoft.OData.Client with version 7.8.3.

Adding RadDataServiceDataSource

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

Example 1: Using RadDataServiceDataSource with RadGridView

<telerik:RadDataServiceDataSource Name="customersDataSource" QueryName="Products" AutoLoad="True"> 
<telerik:RadGridView Grid.Row="0" ItemsSource="{Binding DataView, ElementName=customersDataSource}" 
                 IsBusy="{Binding IsBusy, ElementName=customersDataSource}"
