Use of Bindingnavigator with SfDataGrid

I have an application written fully in Vb.net. I am trying to replace a number of datagridviews with SfDataGrid to take advantage of its several features. I need help with the following issues:

1. How to get the 'Drag & Drop' option from a datasource to the form surface for SfDataGrid - like that is available for datagridview in any visual studio ? As of now one needs to do all the databinding to the SdDataGrid programmatically. Let me if it is possible at all ?

2. When we do a drag and drop of a Datagridview - well for the first time, it also gets a bindingnavigator control along with it. The binding navigator is quite useful for scrolling over the DGView. Is it possible to use this Bindingnavigator buttons to scroll of SfGridView ? I tried a few times with same bindingsources & datasources of the SfGridView, but it is not scrolling. 

Kindly give me an example using a dataset example, preferably in vb.net please.

Thanks & with Best Regards to SF Team.

Hi Renganathan, 

Thanks for your patience. 

We have analyzed your query to load SfDataGrid with BindingNavigator and to scroll grid using buttons in BindingNavigator. You can bind datasource for grid based on bindingSource of binding navigator. But  we regret to inform you that SfDataGrid does not support scrolling through the buttons in binding navigator. Please refer to the below code snippet 

BindingSource bindingSource = new BindingSource(); 
bindingSource.DataSource = orderInfo.OrdersListDetails; 
this.bindingNavigator1.BindingSource = bindingSource; 
this.sfDataGrid1.DataSource = this.bindingNavigator1.BindingSource; 

Also please refer to the sample from link below
