How to perform custom paging with stored procedure on Grid


This knowledge base document explains the way of how to perform custom paging with stored procedure.

  1. Render the Grid with Adaptor.



        .Datasource(ds=> ds.URL("DataSource").Adaptor(AdaptorType.UrlAdaptor))


        .PageSettings(p=> p.PageSize(10).CurrentPage(3))

        .Columns(col =>










  1. Create Stored Procedure to perform custom paging


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[CustomPaging]

                @SkipCount int,

                @PageSize int,

                @TotalRows int output




                SELECT @TotalRows = COUNT(*)

    FROM Orders


                SELECT * FROM Orders ORDER BY OrderID OFFSET (@SkipCount) ROWS FETCH NEXT @PageSize ROWS ONLY






  1. Pass the skip and take to the stored procedure from the controller.


public ActionResult DataSource(DataManager dm)


            DataOperations operation = new DataOperations();

            int count;

            DataTable dt = new DataTable("Order");

            string constring = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["NORTHWNDConnectionString"].ConnectionString;

            using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constring))


                using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("CustomPaging", con))


                    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

                    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SkipCount", dm.Skip);

                    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@PageSize", dm.Take);

                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@TotalRows", SqlDbType.Int, 4);

                    cmd.Parameters["@TotalRows"].Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;


                    SqlDataReader dr = cmd.ExecuteReader();

                    dt.Load(dr); // Load into the dataTable



                    count = Convert.ToInt32(cmd.Parameters["@TotalRows"].Value);



            //Convet the dataTable into list

            List<EditableOrder> resList = new List<EditableOrder>();

            resList = (from DataRow dr in dt.Rows

                      select new EditableOrder()


                             OrderID = Convert.ToInt32(dr["OrderID"]),

                             CustomerID = dr["CustomerID"].ToString(),

                             EmployeeID = Convert.ToInt32(dr["EmployeeID"]),

                             Freight = Convert.ToDecimal(dr["Freight"]),

                             ShipCity = dr["ShipCity"].ToString()



            return Json(new { result = resList, count = count }, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
