Hello,

I am a first time user of Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC. The version I am using is Q1 2014 (2014.1.318). In Kendo Grid while doing custom server binding, if I keep on clicking a column header for sorting, on every third click, the grid misses to send the sort descriptor to the server and the sort order falls back to default . The same happens when I tried the custom server binding from the demo which comes with the product installation. I sorted the column 'Ship City' and on every third click I can see that the 'Grid-sort:' parameter value is empty (I used Chrome developer tool to check this). On the next two clicks, I can see it as 'ShipCity-asc' and 'ShipCity-desc'. I have attached a screen shot which shows the issue in the demo. Can anyone kindly suggest why this might be happening?

Thanks

Shameer

Hi Shameer!

I would guess this is by design - as the screenshot looks the sort direction arrow is also gone. We prefer disallowing "unsorting" and also prefer single column sort since we think the multi-sort is very strange usability-wise. SO - in our configuration we almost always use:

@Html.Kendo().Grid()
//Other options
.Sortable(sorting => sorting.SortMode(GridSortMode.SingleColumn).AllowUnsort(false))

Hope this helps!

Thanks Victor. Your code snippet removed the un-sorting.

Thanks
