Using the Kendo UI Grid with OData on WCF Data Services
A co-worker and I were working with the Kendo UI Grid and having difficulties binding the data from a WCF Data Services 5.2.0 Data Service returning OData. I've used the JSONP extension/behavior in the past with success, yet understood the new WCF Data Services returned JSONP just fine, as previous 5.1.0-rc2, indicated as such (with regards to $format/$callback).
Jason did a great write-up at his blog site on the solution.
Hope this helps others out...using OData returns from WCF Data Services and the excellent Kendo UI Grid.
