    I made my own user control and tables.  The controls use the radEditor and radGrid and display data from my tables.  I have this working outside of Sitefinity, and  I starting to research including these in my site.  Is it a good practice to call the NeedDataSource to read these tables or should I be using something else?

    Hello Randy Bauer,

    Basically, you assign data source for your grid in the NeedDataSource handler. The handler is generally used in advanced data binding of RadGrid ASP.NET AJAX control. Also, it is essential that you should never call the Rebind() method in a NeedDataSource  event handler.You should never call DataBind() as well when using advanced data-binding through NeedDataSource.
