Web forms Grid bound to sql very slow

Hi, i'm evaluating your products, in particular the grid for asp.net webforms.
It seems to be working ok, but when i bind it to a sqldatasource, with just 19000 record, the grid performs really slow. At the page load it freezes for almost a minute, and every subsequent operation (filtering, sorting, grouping) is really really slow.

Is there anyway to overcome this? otherwise unfortunately it's unusable.

Hi Dario,
We have analyzed your requirement. If you are use 19,000 records in sqldatabase with DataOperation (filtering, searching, grouping, sorting), we suggest that you use the WebmethodAdaptor. The WebMethod adaptor works on the basis of load on demand. You have to do the done DataOperations (filtering, searching, grouping, sorting) by using the DataOperations Execute method in the WebMethodAdaptor. Please refer to the below code Example and Sample.
Code Example:

<asp:Content runat="server" ID="BodyContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">


        <ej:Grid ID="FlatGrid" runat="server" ClientIDMode="Static" AllowPaging="true" AllowGrouping="true" AllowFiltering="true" AllowSorting="true" >

        <DataManager URL="Default.aspx/Data"  Adaptor="WebMethodAdaptor" />

            <ClientSideEvents Load="load" />


                <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="True" TextAlign="Right" Width="75" />

                <ej:Column Field="CompanyName" HeaderText="Customer ID" Width="80" />

                <ej:Column Field="ContactName" HeaderText="Employee ID" TextAlign="Right" Width="75" />


            <EditSettings AllowEditing="True" AllowAdding="True" AllowDeleting="True" ></EditSettings>

            <ToolbarSettings ShowToolbar="True" ToolbarItems="add,edit,delete,update,cancel,search"></ToolbarSettings>






        [ScriptMethod(ResponseFormat = ResponseFormat.Json)]

        public static object Data(Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataManager value)


            var DataSource = new NORTHWNDEntities7().C30000Records.ToList();

            DataResult ds = new DataResult();

            DataOperations obj = new DataOperations();

            ds.result = obj.Execute(DataSource, value);

            ds.count = DataSource.Count;

            return ds;
