How to auto refresh a Syncfusion MVC grid periodially

Is there some way to only automatically refresh a Syncfusion MVC Grid periodically?

I can use Jquery and PartialView mechanism to automatically refresh a simple usercontrol, but I cannot get it to work with a MVC grid. Please let me know if anyone has a clue. Thanks,

Hi Ling Lin,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

To automatically refresh the Grid, perform the followings steps:
1. Download the ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 Client templates from Ajax library and add MicrosoftAjax.js,MicrosoftAjaxTemplates.js files into Scripts/Template folder.
2. Create row template for Grid as like your row definition in your model. For example, please refer the below code snippets.

Here, Rowcells are the column names.

3. Using the Javascript SetInterval function, invoke the custom method(for refreshing the grid) automatically. For example, in the button click event, invoke the custom method through SetInterval function. For example, please refer the below code snippets.

$("#ButtonId").bind('click', function () {
timerID= setInterval(refreshGrid, 2000);

4. Get the data using ajax call and pass the records, grid object and template id as argument to updateGridContent method. Refer the below code snippets.

var records = Sys.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer.deserialize(data);
UpdateGridContent(records, gridobj, "RowTemplate");

5. In this update method template instantiate using instantiateIn() method and new records are updated in the grid content. Please refer the below code snippets.

function UpdateGridContent(records,gridobj, templateID) {
var template = new Sys.UI.Template($get(templateID));
var tbody = $($(gridobj.get_element()).find("table:last")[0]).find("tbody:first")[0];

var records;
$(tbody).html("");// empty the grid content body

//create a new rows and fill the row by records using instantiateIn() method
for (i = 0; i < records.length; i++) {
var tr = document.createElement("TR");
template.instantiateIn(tr, null, records[i]);


Please let us know, if you have any queries.

Hi Krishnaraj,

Thanks for responding to my post. I appreciate it. I haven't tried your code yet, it probably works. I used different mechanism, ajax with partial render. It worked. The followings are some general steps to share.

1. Create MVC usercontrol with a syncfusion grid.
2. Use javascript setInverval function to 20000 minis. It invokes the partial render on the usercontrol. It's something like: <% Html.RenderPartial("DetailGridControl", this.ViewData); %>
3. In the controller code, it constructs a list and returns partial view, something like: PartialView("DetailGridControl", retList).

Hi Krishnaraj,

I have a query on that. If we use the template than can also integrate the functionality like Grouping,filtering and summarize in the same grid?
