Hi Manish,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

Query 1: Server paging on Grid control.

We analyzed your query and you can perform the Grid operation (paging, sorting,.) on server side by using “URLAdaptor” of ejDataManager. The paging operation of Grid performed on the server side by the Skip and Take property of DataManager class. Please refer to the below code example, online documentation link and online sample link.






public ActionResult DataSource(DataManager dm)


            . . .

            //server side paging

            if (dm.Skip > 0)

                result.result = operation.PerformSkip(result.result, dm.Skip);

            if (dm.Take > 0)

                result.result = operation.PerformTake(result.result, dm.Take);

            return Json(result, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);





Query 2: Server paging on Dropdown list.

Currently we don’t have support for paging in Dropdown control. We have logged as a feature and a support incident has been created under your account to track the status of this feature. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates.


But we have Virtualization support with Dropdown based on scroll, the online demo is available in the following link
