Hi Omar,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We analyzed your query and you can refresh the Grid control by using “refreshContent” method of Grid in “onClientclick” event of ASP.Net Button control.

If you want to prvent the postback to the server while clicking the button, we suggest you to use the return false statement. Please refer to the below code example and stack overflow link.

<ej:Grid ID="Grid" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="SqlData">


           <%--Binding sql datasource--%>

            . . .


        <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlData" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:SQLConnectionString %>"

            SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Orders]"></asp:SqlDataSource>


    <asp:button id="Button1"

       . . .

       <%--Asp button with client click event and return false--%>

       onclientclick="onClick();return false;"


    <script type="text/javascript">

        function onClick(e) {


            var gridObj = $("#MainContent_Grid").data("ejGrid");

            //Refresh the Grid control





We have created a sample that can be download from the below link.


If still you are facing the issue, could you please share the following details?

       View page code.

       If possible reproduce the issue in the above sample

Hi Omar,

We analyzed your query and we suspect that you have added or modified the record externally from the Grid and update those changes on the database. So, if you need to refresh the changes on the Grid control, a post back is required to fetch the data from database again.

Note: When binding SqlDataSource to Grid, all Grid actions will be performed in client-side on the cached data. So we need to send a post-back to server to refresh the cached data.

If we misunderstood your query, please provide the following details regarding your requirement?

·         Did you update the changes on the database?

·         Confirm whether you need to add/update the record on the database or Grid (client side) itself.

·         Share your view page code.

·         Share the screenshot expected output.

·         Describe your requirement clearly.

Hi Saravanan

yes exactly your right i need post back but my mean was
When I click the button the whole page should not  get postback
i used an update panel with grid.databind() but it doesnt work??but it works with asp grid ..maybe i'm wrong!!
is there any ajax method in syncfusion grid to do that or can you give an example of using update panel with grid.

thanks a lot

Hi Saravanan

my problem was sold by using __doPostBack('<%=UpdatePanel1.ClientID %>', ''); in page i can't understand why it didn't work before but now it works.
now there is a strange problem after postback the filter menu doesn't appear correctly!!
