I would like to restore the saved filters of the grid during the last visit on the page. I would like to know how to save and restore the settings on server side.
Thank you very much for your help,

Hi Mirko,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion product.

We would like to let you know that your requirement “Restore filter settings on page load” has been achieved on the server side. To achieve your requirement use Filter Descriptor values to restore filter settings on page load. To maintain paging, Sorting and other grid functionality use session concepts. The code snippets is shown below,

Code Snippet:


public class HomeController : Controller


   public ActionResult Index()


            if (Session["Args"] != null)


                List<AutoFormatting> data1 = new List<AutoFormatting>();

                var arg = (List<FilterDescriptor>)Session["Args"];

                for (int i = 0; i < arg.Count; i++)


                    var col = arg[i].ColumnName;

                    var val = arg[i].Value.ToString();

List<AutoFormatting> data =                                  (List<AutoFormatting>)AutoformatRepository.GetData();

                    foreach(var dat in data)


 if ( dat.Currency.ToString()==val.ToString() || dat.Dates.ToString() ==  val.ToString() || dat.Number.ToString() == val.ToString() || dat.Telephone.ToString() == val.ToString())






                Session["Data"] = data1;

                return View(data1);


            var data2 = AutoformatRepository.GetData();

            return View(data2);




        public ActionResult Index(PagingParams args)


            if (args.FilterDescriptors.Count != 0)


                Session["Args"] = args.FilterDescriptors;


            if (Session["Data"] != null)


                List<AutoFormatting> data1 = (List<AutoFormatting>)Session["Data"];

                Session["Data"] = data1;

                return data1.GridActions<AutoFormatting>();


            IEnumerable data = AutoformatRepository.GetData();

            return data.GridActions<AutoFormatting>();





For your convenience we have created a sample and the same can be download from the below attachment.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
