I am looking for some direction as to the best way to set up the datasource for this Telerik control. I have no experience using a webservice as a datasource. I typically have only had to make calls to SQL via ado connections strings. From the research I have done it appears to me that ASP.NET API might be the path I need to go down, but I have no experience with MVC either. I am using VS2013, SQL2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS7.5, .NET 4.51. The solution is ASP.NET WebForms (VB.NET).

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        RadClientDataSource1.DataSource.WebServiceDataSourceSettings.BaseUrl = ResolveUrl("~/Services/NorthwindWcfService.svc/")

 End Sub

Open in new window

No.  I am guessing that is what I am confused about.
