Hi Krittikorn


We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.


We have created a sample based on your requirement and the same can be downloaded from below link.

Sample: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/directtrac/131200/ASPSample-1139529559.zip


We have used a custom adaptor in the above sample to bind data from webapi service to Grid and we have already logged issue report “Need to create adaptor for WebApi”  to include an adaptor for WebApi service in DataManager and it will be included in upcoming Volume 3, 2014 release.


We also would like to let you know that from WebApi service we need to return data with its count and so we have used “PageResult” to do the same. Please refer the following code snippets.

<ej:Grid ID="EmployeesGrid" runat="server" AllowSorting="true" AllowPaging="true" Load="load">

        <DataManager URL="api/Values"></DataManager>




        var adaptor = new ej.ODataAdaptor().extend({

            processResponse: function (data, ds, query, xhr, request, changes) {

                if (request.type != "POST")

                    return { result: data.Items, count: data.Count }



        function load(args) {

            args.model.dataSource.adaptor = new adaptor;




public class ValuesController : ApiController


        public PageResult<Order> Get(ODataQueryOptions opts)


            var results = opts.ApplyTo(db.Orders.AsQueryable());

            var data = db.Orders.AsQueryable();

            return new PageResult<Order>((IEnumerable<Order>)results, Request.GetNextPageLink(), data.Count());




Please let us know if you have any queries.
