The ASP.NET MVC Query Builder is a rich and responsive UI for filtering large amounts of data by creating or editing conditions that can be combined with data visualization controls like DataGrid and Charts to view the filtered data. It outputs structured JSON filters that can be easily parsed to create SQL queries. It allows you to create conditions and group them using AND/OR logic.

Data Binding

ASP.NET MVC Query Builder can be bound to data from a variety of data sources in the form of a JavaScript object array collection. It auto populates the data source and maps the data to the appropriate fields.

Integration with Data Manager

Integrating the Data Manager control with the Query Builder simplifies communication with a data source and returns the desired result based on the provided filters.

UI customization with templates

Add controls like Checkbox, Slider, and Dropdown List to to customize the Javascript Query Builder using templates.

Querybuilder with Header template.

Header template

Use the HeaderTemplate property to define header template which is used for customizing and/or/not operators and add rules/groups buttons using their own widgets.

Querybuilder with column template.

Rule template

Use the RuleTemplate property to define rule template which is used for customizing an entire column using their own widgets.

Querybuilder with Value template.

Value template

Use the template property to define value template which is used for customizing values using their own widgets.

Complex data binding

Complex databinding allows to create subfields for columns. It can be achievable by specifying Separator property and by specfiying complex data in nested columns or specify a complex data source in the query builder.

We do not sell the ASP.NET MVC Query Builder separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion ASP.NET MVC suite, which contains over 80 ASP.NET MVC components, including the Query Builder UI. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for ASP.NET MVC suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our ASP.NET MVC Query Builder demo here.

No, our 80+ ASP.NET MVC components, including Query Builder UI, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Query Builder UI alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 80+ ASP.NET MVC components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
