Aspx Razor view example


I am a beginner in I want to understand building an application with an sql datasource and Razor view, C#  (with DevExpress components).

So far I found complicated examples (for me).

Can you provide me a simple application which:
-connects to an Sql server table
-shows it in a DevExpress Grid (with Razor view)
-some comments to understand the basics (the relationships between the objects etc.)

Thank you

DevExpress has some great examples of working with their controls.  That being said, I have had no good luck working with them in MVC.  I find them to be overkill and quite slow.  This may have improved in the latest release, but as far as the 2012.2 release, it was not usable in my opinion.  

That all being said, you are asking people to create a simple application, that is not simple.  Working with devex is pretty complicated and their examples are about as simple as they get.  Read through their examples slowly and learn it as you go.  That's the only way you are really going to understand it.
