The Card View control supports data binding in server mode, which is designed to work with large datasets. This technique significantly improves the Card View's speed and responsiveness.

The BindToLINQ method is used to establish server-mode data binding using the Entity Framework (EF) Core ORM. The following code demonstrates the described functionality in detail.

@model IQueryable<Email>

@(Html.DevExpress()
    .BootstrapCardView<Email>("cardViewWithLargeDatabase")
    .KeyFieldName(k => k.ID)
    .Columns(columns => {
        columns.Add(c => c.From);
        columns.Add(c => c.Subject);
    })
    .Routes(routes => routes
        .MapRoute(r => r
            .Action("BindingToEFCorePartial")
            .Controller("CardView")))
    .BindToLINQ(Model))
