Hello syncfusion support ,

Im trying to update and delete my record in grid using this code 


                    dataSource: ej.DataManager({
                        json: e.result,
                        adaptor: new ej.remoteSaveAdaptor(),
                        insertUrl: "http://localhost:11055/api/user/PostUser",
                        updateUrl: "http://localhost:11055/api/user/UpdateUser/2",  
                        removeUrl: "http://localhost:11055/api/user/DeleteRole/2",
 my question is how to know the id of the selected record to update or delete, instead of typing it manually to send it to the api

thanks in advanced

Hi Ali, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 

QUERY: how to know the id of the selected record to update or delete, instead of typing it manually to send it to the api 
From your query we understand that you are trying to update and delete record using RemoteSaveAdaptor. For edit/delete/insert record, there is no need to manually send any id to the api.  

Please refer the below code snippet, 

In view 
<div id="Grid"> 
    <script > 
        var gridData = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@ViewBag.dataSource)); 
        $(function () { 
                dataSource: ej.DataManager({ 
                    json: gridData, 
                    insertUrl: "NormalInsert", 
                    updateUrl: "NormalUpdate", 
                    removeUrl: "NormalDelete", 
                    adaptor: "remoteSaveAdaptor", 
                allowPaging: true, 
                editSettings: { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true }, 
                toolbarSettings: { showToolbar: true, toolbarItems: [ej.Grid.ToolBarItems.Add, ej.Grid.ToolBarItems.Edit, ej.Grid.ToolBarItems.Delete, ej.Grid.ToolBarItems.Update, ej.Grid.ToolBarItems.Cancel] }, 
                columns: [ 
                       { field: "OrderID", headerText: "Order ID", isPrimaryKey: true, width: 75, textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right }, 
                        { field: "CustomerID", headerText: "Customer ID", width: 90 }, 
In controller 

    public class GridController : Controller 
        public static List<OrderDetails> order = new List<OrderDetails>(); 
        public ActionResult GridFeatures() 
            if (order.Count() == 0) 
            ViewBag.datasource = order; 
            return View(); 
        public ActionResult NormalUpdate(CRUDModel<OrderDetails> myObject) // method to update edited record 
            var ord = myObject.Value; 
            OrderDetails val = order.Where(or => or.OrderID == ord.OrderID).FirstOrDefault(); 
            val.OrderID = ord.OrderID; 
            val.CustomerID = ord.CustomerID; 
            return Json(myObject.Value); 
        public ActionResult NormalInsert(OrderDetails value) //method to insert new record 
            order.Insert(order.Count, value); 
            return Json(order); 
        public ActionResult NormalDelete(CRUDModel<OrderDetails> value) //method to delete record 
            order.Remove(order.Where(or => or.OrderID == int.Parse(value.Key.ToString())).FirstOrDefault()); 
            return Json(value); 

Please refer the below sample, 

Still facing the issue, please share us the below details, 
  1. Your controller and view page code
  2. Screenshot of error(if any)
  3. Explain us what do mean by id of record (primary key or index or something else?

If you have further queries, please get back to us.
