ADO.NET Data Services – Server Driven Paging (SDP).

In this post I am going to extend from my previous Post In this post we are going to see how we can limit the query result with new  Server Driven Paging .

When you browse the .Svc file  the Services returns all the  records from the Contact Entity set as shown below. we may not need all the Records at once on the client side.


Now we are going to limit this result using  ADO.NT Data Service  SDP feature called Server Driven Paging. To enable this we need to make small code change as shown below.

The line config.SetEntitySetPageSize("*", 3); will do the magic.


Now we asked server to return only 3 records. The below screenshot shows the result and also it provides the Link for next Page . 


Suppose if we want to know total records we need to use $inlinecount operation. http://localhost:2600/AW.svc/Contact?$inlinecount=allpages
