ASP.NET Team Blog
10 May 2013

The first release of DXperience for 2013 is almost here! In June, you’ll get to try it in your own development.

And here’s one of the first major features that you’ll encounter in this v13.1 release:

Endless Paging

Endless paging? What's that? Simply put, it's the ability of the Grid or DataView control to automatically load new content as you scroll or page down though the data. Take a look this short YouTube video to learn more:

New DevExpress ASP.NET feature for 2013.1 release

Mobile Touch Supported

This feature is especially great when you use the DevExpress ASP.NET GridView or DataView through a mobile browser like iPad’s Safari, Microsoft Surface’s IE10, or Google Chrome on Android tablets.

Touch events are supported by most DevExpress ASP.NET control for all 3 of the major vendor’s (Apple, Google, Microsoft) tablet devices.

Examples: Facebook, Twitter

Examples are all over the place on the social network sites: think of Facebook.com, or Twitter, or Pinterest, anywhere where there is a lot of data and you don't want to the halt the user experience by loading it all (even if it were possible or necessary).

Part of 2013.1 Release

June 2013, is when the DXperience v2013.1 release will be available to everyone via devexpress.com.

Nice!

What data sources will this work against?

I expect that it should work with any IEnumerable datasource as earlier.

I thought the term for this is actually "Continuous Scroll"?

Geert and Vlad,

Yes, it'll work with any IEnumerable datasource.

From help:

"can be bound to any standard data source type including: SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource, XmlDataSource, AccessDataSource, and SiteMapDataSource."

Neal,

I was pushing to call it "The Never-Ending Data Story".

But, yes, you can call it "Continuous Scrolling" too. I've heard it both ways. A year ago, I discussed it in more depth on this blog post:
