Telerik RadGrid Provides Native LINQDataSource Support
Telerik announced that RadGrid, its AJAX-powered datagrid control, provides native and codeless support for the new Microsoft .NET 3.5 LinqDataSource. By leveraging LINQ s query capabilities, RadGrid helps you handle millions of records in just a few milliseconds.
Included in VS2008, the LinqDataSource control reduces the need for writing code when performing data operations. Developers can use it and manage tons of data in their applications by binding data to ASP.NET data controls from any LINQ-enabled data model.
With the newly released RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX, Telerik moved its LINQ support to the next level; now the grid will perform all operations, like sorting, filtering, paging, etc. using pure LINQ to Objects internally. Developers can use any data source object or data source control without any limitations or further constraints. In addition, RadGrid s design-time support functionality allows easy configuration with LinqDataSource.
All Telerik s data-driven controls offer full support for this new data source control and work seamlessly with LINQ.
