  1. Hi Kunal,

    I am having major issues with getting the RadGrid with a datapager to display 4 million records accross 80 columns in my LightSwitch application. Is there anyway you can help with this?



  2. Hello Kelly,

    You need to use Data Virtualization. Using this technique, you can fetch data on demand from your server. Also check for LazyInitialization from .Net 4.0.

  3. Hi Kunal,

    Thanks for your response. Is there a tutorial in how to use Data Virtualization with a RadGrid control in a LightSwitch application?

    Thanks so much for your help. I'm stressing about getting this project.



  4. Hello Kelly,

    I don't have the exact link but I have seen one (I guess in Codeproject) regarding Data Virtualization, but that is using simple Silverlight Grid. Concept will be almost same. Just do a search. If you need further assistance with LightSwitch, you can ask to the experts in LightSwitch Forum hosted my Michael Washington.
