We does not support the old persisting class for RadGrid, that was showed in our demos, since the release of the RadPersistenceFramework. The pivot grid has too complicated internal structure to be persisted using sample save/load settings into the code-behind.
Could you share more details about the problem with the Arabic language. I will test it here if you give me sample configuration and tell you what further you can do to resolve it.
