Hi Alberto,

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

We have created a sample using angular with ASP.NET WebAPI. Please refer the sample and code example below.
Sample: WebApplication7



       <div ng-app="GridCtrl">

            <div ng-controller="bodyCtrl">

                <div ej-grid id="Grid" e-width="500px" e-datasource="data" e-pagesettings-pagesize="3"  e-allowpaging="true" e-editsettings-allowadding="true" e-editsettings-allowdeleting="true" e-editsettings-allowediting="true" e-editsettings-showconfirmdialog="false" e-toolbarsettings-showtoolbar="true" e-toolbarsettings-toolbaritems="tools">

                    <div e-columns>

                        <div e-column e-field="EmployeeID" e-headertext="Employee ID" e-isprimarykey="true" e-textalign="right"></div>

                        <div e-column e-field="Name" e-headertext="Employee Name" e-textalign="right"></div>







    angular.module("GridCtrl", ["ejangular"])

        .controller("bodyCtrl", function ($scope) {

            //Provide the datasource to the grid. Here the WebApiAdaptor is used.

            $scope.data = ej.DataManager({ url: "api/Orders", adaptor: "WebApiAdaptor" });

            $scope.tools = ["add", "edit", "delete", "update", "cancel"];



By using the WebApiAdaptor we can perform the server side operation using WebAPI controller.


NorthwindDataContext db = new NorthwindDataContext();

        // GET api/<controller>      

        public PageResult<EmployeePhoto> Get(ODataQueryOptions opts)


            List<EmployeePhoto> emp = db.EmployeePhotos.ToList();

            return new PageResult<EmployeePhoto>(opts.ApplyTo(emp.AsQueryable()) as IEnumerable<EmployeePhoto>, null, emp.Count);


        // GET api/<controller>/

        public string Get(int id)


            return "value";


        // POST api/<controller>

        public void Post(EmployeePhoto employee)


            NorthwindDataContext db = new NorthwindDataContext();

            db.EmployeePhotos.InsertOnSubmit(new EmployeePhoto()


                EmployeeID = employee.EmployeeID,

                Name = employee.Name




        // PUT api/<controller>/5

        public void Put(EmployeePhoto employee)


            EmployeePhoto emp = (EmployeePhoto)db.EmployeePhotos.Single(s => s.EmployeeID == employee.EmployeeID);

            emp.EmployeeID = employee.EmployeeID;

            emp.Name = employee.Name;



        // DELETE api/<controller>/5

        public void Delete(int id)


            EmployeePhoto emp = (EmployeePhoto)db.EmployeePhotos.Single(s => s.EmployeeID == id);
