LinqDataSoure Observations

When you set a DataGrid’s datasoure to a LinqDataSource control you still need to handle the paging event in your code behind file.  It’s also worth noting that the DataGrid does not use the Linq skip and take paging functionality.  The DataGrid will simply request all results and page them in memory.

When you over load the OnSelecting event you do not need to specify a datacontext or TableName or other query specific properties.
