    I am wondering if I bind to an entity framework data source (say I pull 100 records out of a 1000) and then do some filtering or searching how can I make it search/filter based on all 1000 records.

In a nutshell I don't want to have to to do all the "leg work" of the sorting and filtering etc (thats why we have these controls right) but I don't want to have to pull in the entire database everytime I do an action....

Any thoughts?

Hi Chris,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.


Query : Don't want to pull in the entire database everytime I do an action ?


We suspect that you would want to achieve the similar behavior of Custom Data Binding in Grid MVC. Please refer our below online link for sample demo of Custom data binding.


Sample Demo : http://mvc.syncfusion.com/demos/ui/grid/DataBinding/CustomBinding


For your convenience we have prepared a sample for Custom Data binding and it is attached below. Please refer to it and let us know whether this is the requirement you wanted to achieve using Entity Framework.


Please let us know if you have any concerns.
