    I have a fully working grid that I can filter per. column , that is you can filter by each column with say "contains" text.

    Im wondering if there is a way for me to initialize that with path variables. f.e.




    and then the filter in the title column would have its filter text = "something" and the column name would have the filter text = "othername" etc.


    I have a few columns.


    Any ideas on how to do this ?

    I have a index action in home controller that can reiceive these filter strings, but I dont know how to "set" them in the grid.

    I could possibly send them into the view in the viewbag.

    Hello Emil,

    Depending if the MVC wrappers are used or not, there are two possible approaches:

    1) Using MVC wrappers- The Grid will automatically apply the state values if they are in the correct format. Please check the following thread in our forum:

    2) Using the vanilla HTML/JS Kendo UI widgets - Check how to parse the query string parameters into filter rules (e.g. JavaScript objects). This can be done either on the server or on the client:

    I hope this is helpful.
