The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Grid is a component for displaying data in a tabular format and comes with a variety of powerful features for data management, presentation, and customization such as filtering, grouping, paging, sorting, and much more.

The ASP.NET MVC Data Grid allows you to load and propagate its data by configuring a custom data source, if required, or by using any of the following built-in data-binding options:

  • View-Model binding (or local binding) for rendering local data in the component.
  • AJAX binding by setting a model type and performing AJAX requests to retrieve or update the data.
  • ASP.NET Web API through parameter binding which allows you to customize the binding process.
  • ASP.NET MVC SignalR for adding real-time functionality (push updates) to the component.

This demo shows how to configure the ASP.NET MVC Data Grid to display its data and also perform the sorting, paging, and grouping data operations by utilizing the built-in settings of the component.

For more information about the approaches for taking the best out of the component, refer to the official Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Data Grid product documentation.
