Binding to Data
The Bootstrap Card View control can function only in bound mode. Otherwise, it will not display any data. The Bootstrap Card View can be bound to any standard data source type including: SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource, XmlDataSource, AccessDataSource, and SiteMapDataSource.
The Bootstrap Card View also supports Database Server Mode - a data binding mode that is specifically designed to work with large data levels: more than 50,000 records. Data is loaded in small portions, and data-aware operations are performed on server-side to provide quick access to data, even if the sorting and filtering features are used.
