Grid Summary And Remote Data

How can I show my grid summary when I working with remote data(wep api) ?

my current wep api code is like that
            var accounts =
                from acc in db.Accounts
                where acc.Deleted == false
                orderby acc.Name
                select new
                    Id = acc.Id,
                    Code = acc.Code,
                    Name = acc.Name,
                    IdentityCode = acc.IdentityNo,
                    Group = acc.Group.Name,
                    Branch = acc.Branch.Name,
                    Active = acc.Active,
                    DefaultPhone = acc.PhoneNumbers.Select(x => x.Name).FirstOrDefault(),
                    Balance = //bla bla bla
             // I can return count and result. but how can I return Balance Total Summary?
            var result = new
                result = accounts.Skip(dm.Skip).Take(dm.Take),
                count = accounts.Count(),
            return Json(result, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

Hi Ümüt,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Query: How can I show my grid summary when I working with remote data(wep api) ?

We suggest you to use WebApiAdaptor and enable ShowSummay with adding the SummaryRows and SummaryColumns in the Grid properties to achieve your requirement. Please refer the below code snippet for further details.


    .Datasource(ds => ds.URL("/api/Orders").Adaptor(AdaptorType.WebApiAdaptor))



    .SummaryRow(row =>


        row.Title("Sum").SummaryColumns(col => { col.SummaryType(SummaryType.Sum).Format("{0:C}").DisplayColumn("Freight").DataMember("Freight").Add(); }).Add();






Note: We have analyzed your code snippet and found that you have used UrlAdaptor functionalities in your controller. For your kind information when we use Web API controller it will perform the data functionalities itself and we don’t need to perform custom operations to return the result.

Please refer the below UG Doc and Online Demo link to know further details about Summary functionality in ejGrid.
