Web API Service

DevExtreme provides the DevExtreme.AspNet.Data extension to access an ASP.NET Web API service. This extension consists of two parts: the server-side part implements data processing on the server according to the protocol the Lookup uses; the client-side part creates and configures a CustomStore to access the server from the client. The following code shows how to use the extension's client-side createStore method.

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    const serviceUrl = "http://url/to/my/service";
    $("#lookupContainer").dxLookup({
        dataSource: DevExpress.data.AspNet.createStore({
            key: "ID",
            loadUrl: serviceUrl + "/GetAction"
        }),
        // ...
    })
});
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-lookup ...
    [dataSource]="store">
</dx-lookup>
import { DxLookupModule } from "devextreme-angular";
import CustomStore from "devextreme/data/custom_store";
import { createStore } from "devextreme-aspnet-data-nojquery";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    store: CustomStore;
    constructor() {
        const serviceUrl = "http://url/to/my/service";
        this.store = createStore({
            key: "ID",
            loadUrl: serviceUrl + "/GetAction"
        })
    }
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxLookupModule
    ],
    // ...
