VS2012, MVC4, VB.Net, ASPX
When I create a data model to pass into my view, I handle paging and sorting in my query to the database, to reduce overheads. If I then call GridActions() when I return the View, I lose the sort sequence of the data that I have applied. If I do not call GridActions(), I get the wait/processing image and the grid is permenently disabled.
In all of the examples I've seen, sorting and paging are not really shown, as the first 100 records are always taken.
What am I missing ?!

Hi John,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


We would like to let you know GridActions() is mandatory  to  generate Grid in callback after specific action.  We suggest you to use ‘Custom Binding’ to processes the data source using its built-in LINQ expressions to perform paging, sorting, grouping, filtering, and editing to bypass their built-in data source processing and process the data themselves.
