Hi Jorge,
We have created a sample for binding datasource for the Grid from server using “PageMethods”. Please refer to the code example.

Code Example:


<%--Enable PagerMethods--%>

<asp:ScriptManager runat="server" EnablePageMethods="true">



   <ej:Button Type="Button" runat="server" ClientSideOnClick="btnClick" Text="button"></ej:Button>

<ej:Grid ID="FlatGrid" runat="server" AllowSorting="True" AllowPaging="True">
. . . . 

<script type="text/javascript">

    function btnClick(args) {


       PageMethods.GetCityNameArray(keyvalue, OnSuccessGetCityNameArray);


    function OnSuccessGetCityNameArray(response) {

        // here we get xml data

        var jsondata = …;// here We want to change xmltojson 

        var gridObj = $('#<%= OrdersGrid.ClientID %>').data("ejGrid");






  public static object GetCityNameArray(string[] cities)


            var data = new NorthwndDataContext().Orders.Take(10).ToList();

            var count = new NorthwndDataContext().Orders.Count();

            var xmlString = GetXMLString(data, count);

            return xmlString;


        public static string GetXMLString(IEnumerable<Order> list, int count)


            var xml = new XElement("Orders", from ord in list

                                             select new XElement("Order",

                                            new XElement("OrderID", ord.OrderID),

                                            new XElement("EmployeeID", ord.EmployeeID),

                                            new XElement("CustomerID", ord.CustomerID),

                                            new XElement("Freight", ord.Freight),

                                                            new XElement("ShipName", ord.ShipName)

                                                        ), new XElement("Count", count));

            return xml.ToString();


Note: We need to convert xml data to proper json format to bind with ejGrid.
