How can I configure the grid to perform paging, sorting, filtering and grouping in memory?

I want to transfer to the client the full range of data

not to access the server for paging, sorting, filtering ...

because it is slow (in the query, data recalculated)

for example, Kendo UI Gid  is done so:

"By default ajax requests will be made for paging, sorting, filtering and grouping. The ToDataSourceResult extension method processes the data source server-side. To prevent that call the ServerOperation method and pass false as the argument.

Example: Perform Paging, Sorting, Filtering and Grouping In Memory

 // -- removed for brevity
 .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.Ajax()
 // -- removed for brevity

are the options?

Hi Andrey,


Currently ASP.Net MVC Grid don’t have support for doing paging, filtering and grouping operation without sending AJAX request.


We suggest you to use our Essential JavaScript Studio which have complete client-side support including this feature. The request feature can be achieved in ejGrid by the setting offline as true in DataManager.



<div id="Grid"></div>

var dataManger = ej.DataManager({

                url: "http://mvc.syncfusion.com/Services/Northwnd.svc/Orders",





                    dataSource: dataManger,

                    . . . .




When setting offline as true in DataManager, the complete data will be requested from the database only once using Ajax request and further actions such as Filtering, Paging and Grouping will be handled by the client side itself.
