This KB showcase the example to achieve the searching operation in grid when WCF/Odata service is used.


In WCF/Odata service, we don’t have the default searching support. So, to achieve the searching in remote data use customAdaptor to modify the default search query string.

Step 1: Render the Grid control







.Net core






Step 2: Modify the search query in the customAdaptor function



Step 3:  Extend the OData adaptor as custom adaptor in grid load event.


Refer the below link for JS-playground sample


Also refer the below link for custom adaptor script file. 



Note: Please refer the custom Adaptor script file after the ej.web.all.min.js file. 



Figure: Remote data Query string.
