You need to convert your datatable object to strongly typed collection like this:
public class MyGridItem
    public string Title { get; set; }
    public int Count { get; set; }

    static MyGridItem CreateFromRow(DataRow row)
        var item = new MyGridItem();
        item.Title = row["Title"].ToString();
        item.Count = (int)row["Count"];
        // other fields
        return item;

    static IEnumerable<MyGridItem> CreateFromTable(DataTable table)
        var list = new List<MyGridItem>();
        foreach (DataRow row in table.Rows)
        return list;
In controller:
var items = MyGridItem.CreateFromTable(table)
return View(items);

and what can I do if the DataTable is dynamic? I want to use mvc.grid to populate from a generic datatable that is created at runtime?
