Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core
The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid is a powerful, fast, feature-rich component that can both handle large volumes of data with ease thanks to pagination, virtualization and infinite scrolling, and visualize and manipulate it in a way it makes sense for the user. Bind your data, set up a few properties and see it work in any browser and device. We’ve taken care of every scenario you can think of so your development time is reduced tremendously to just a couple of minutes.
The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid component enables you to perform CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations and manipulate its underlying data. You have the option to choose from different edit modes like Batch, Inline and Popup. Customization is limitless by using a custom editor and showcasing your data any way you see fit.
The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid control provides a variety of options about how to present and perform operations over the underlying data, such as paging, sorting, filtering, grouping, editing, exporting and many more. You can enable these built-in features of the Grid Control using just a few properties. Users can also benefit from multi-column sorting and Google-style autocomplete filtering. This makes the user experience intuitive when browsing through large quantities of data. Use the slick and intuitive interface to present users with a great looking application.
Users can save grid settings, such as column order, sorting, filtering, or paging state, and load them in consequent app sessions. The feature is particularly useful when individual users need to view custom information when logging in.

It is also possible to bind foreign-key columns directly to a remote data source. As setting this feature up can be tricky, it is recommended you first check the available sample demo.
Bind your Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid control to static arrays, dynamic objects, local or remote data, or even Web API endpoints or SignalR hubs – no need for extra processing. Changes will be propagated both ways without any additional effort on your side. Getting the data from the model to your view is easy as completing a couple of steps.
This feature was requested by many of you, our users! We are making grouping items in the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid component many times faster when working with millions of rows. By enabling one attribute, whenever users request the Grid to group some elements together (e.g. all products being sold in a certain shop), the grouping procedure will run on the server. Effectively, this frees up the client to display a loading screen while waiting for the server to process the results but also makes it faster since the server is likely to be much more powerful than the user’s machine.

The virtualization feature of the Telerik for ASP.NET Core Grid allows you to handle large amount of data without negatively impacting the user experience and the browser performance. It comes with two types of virtualization – row and column virtualization which will render respectively the number of set items or columns. The loading time and resources needed to visualize the active view of data in the grid are significantly reduced when having many records in the source. Editing is also supported.
Some projects require displaying table data in hierarchical fashion, also called master-detail tables, in order to visualize relations between parent and child records. This is where the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Grid hierarchy feature comes in handy. Quickly create an N-level hierarchical Grid by specifying detail templates. Templates allow you to focus on the details in your records that are important for your user’s work and create a tailored application.
The Frozen Columns feature of the ASP.NET Core Grid is useful when going through large amounts of data. It enables you to lock certain columns to have them displayed continuously throughout scrolling. Simply set Locked in the column properties. The Grid also automatically provides a menu to allow the user to execute lock operations themselves.
Grant your users the ability to resize and reorder the columns you have provided them with on the client side, without any request to the server. As expected, the provided context menu enables them to easily hide or display, sort or filter columns. From the user’s perspective, it just works.
Grids with large numbers of columns might be difficult to navigate for the end user but with Sticky columns navigation becomes much easier. Marking a column as sticky, will keep it always visible on the screen while other non-sticky columns become scrollable and go out of view.
This feature is similar to the Frozen columns Grid feature. The main difference is that while frozen columns are rendered on the left side of the widget, sticky columns are displayed in the scrollable area with the non-frozen columns.

Export the content of the grid control into PDF and Excel. All you need to do is display the built-in buttons for export or call a single method from an external element. You can predefine multiple styles like font, color, page size and layout to provide a unique look and feel specific to the exported file format.
Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid offers Infinite Scrolling Mode to allow large data sets to be scrolled through easily while also having grouping, hierarchy and CRUD operations enabled. By dynamically loading more data when the end of the page is reached, the user perceives the grid as if it he could scroll endlessly.
The Search panel feature in Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid control enables users to search through the data bound to the Grid. Under the hood the Search panel uses filtering to show the relevant records.
Have full control over the way your Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid looks to the end user. Using the template feature of the Grid you can easily customize the layout of your columns, rows, toolbar and details. Colors, logos, fonts - nothing is out of reach.
If you are in a hurry and don’t have the resources to modify the built-in styling of the ASP.NET Core grid control, there’s no need to panic. The grid is bundled with more than 20 themes which cater to different needs, but all are designed with attention and care to details.
Conforming to your brand design guidelines may sometimes be quite a burden with web libraries. Modifying who knows how many variables to get the right result easily becomes confusing and mundane. We know this is a problem, so our component suites come with a ThemeBuilder – a tool we’ve specifically created to make customization easy.
Why do you need to build a mobile version of your app when the same application can work equally well on mobile and desktop devices?
Thanks to the built-in adaptive rendering of the control, you can rest assured that your Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid will work across all screens and browsers. The Grid may take more screen space and provide menus when that appear when users interact with it. Input events from touches are simulated as if they were mouse or keyboard.
The Core Grid control is perfect for scenarios where accessibility is important for your application. The Grid complies with WAI-ARIA, WCAG 2.1 and Section 508 guidelines, ensuring that individuals with disabilities can still view and interact with it.

Right out of the box, the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid provides RTL support for languages where users read starting from right to left such as Arabic or Hebrew. This mode of the ASP.NET Core Grid allows for the columns to be reversed and the rightmost column to become first. The adjustment feels more natural to the end users. The RTL feature can be adjusted for local preference by changing just a few settings.
Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core offers two options for declaring UI components – through HTML or Tag Helpers. You can choose which approach to use based on preference, technology background or team development practice. Both HTML and Tag helpers allow you to lay out the components and their configuration with a simple and easy-to-read HTML-like syntax. This includes binding to local and remote data and can be done with even more advanced Grid setups.
Give your users the opportunity to use the keyboard for almost any action that can be triggered with the mouse, including navigating items, selecting single and multiple items, going into and out of edit mode, paging, and even expanding and collapsing hierarchical grids.

Using the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Grid, you can be certain that your app will look and behave as expected across all browsers. This includes all desktop and mobile browsers, with their quirks and features. You don’t need to add different browser-specific prefixes or lookup online how to position your data in the best way – it just works.
