The ListView supports data binding and the dataSource property can be assigned with the instance of DataManager to bind remote the data.

The DataManager that acts as an interface between the service endpoint and ListView will require the following minimal information to interact with the service endpoint properly.

DataManager->url - Defines the service endpoint to fetch the data.

DataManager->adaptor - Defines the adaptor option. By default, the ODataAdaptor is used for remote binding.

Adaptor is responsible for processing response and request from/to the service endpoint. @syncfusion/ej2-data namespace provides some predefined adaptors that are designed to interact with the particular service endpoints. They are:

  • UrlAdaptor - Used to interact with any remote services. This is the base adaptor for all remote based adaptors.
  • ODataAdaptor - Used to interact with OData endpoints.
  • ODataV4Adaptor - Used to interact with OData V4 endpoints.
  • WebApiAdaptor - Used to interact with Web API created under OData standards.
  • WebMethodAdaptor - Used to interact with web methods.

In this sample, the remote data is bound to be a collection of Products data as an instance of DataManager.
