Server-side paging with ASP.NET Web API and Kendo UI Grids

If you need to implement a custom server-side paging solution with Kendo UI, it may not be readily obvious as to how to accomplish this!

Kendo UI has some code samples which partially addresses this scenario: https://github.com/telerik/ui-for-aspnet-mvc-examples/tree/master/grid/custom-ajax-binding/KendoGridCustomAjaxBinding

However, this example is tightly coupled to Entity Framework and does not work so well with ASP.NET Web API...

So how exactly can you adapt the Controller code sample to your own needs that work with ASP.NET Web API?

First of all, you need to make sure your Kendo Grid is setup as follows:
Notice that you have to set ServerOperation(true)

Next, you have to set up your Controller code as follows:

That is all there is to it!
