We have a situation where we are using the Tab control and we need to have a grid in each one of the tabs. The grids get loaded onto the page on the LoadContentFrom() function on the tab strip.

We have placed the grid into a Partial View so that it can be re-used. Loading the populated grid onto the page works fine but the sorting and filtering only works on the grid in the first tab. Placing 4 grid declarations, 1 for each tab works perfectly, I think its because each grid now has a unique name.

I guess my question is... can you use a place a grid into a partial view and use it multiple times on a single page?

Hello Morne,

You're on the right path - the unique name of the grid is the problem. You can resolve this by making the grid name a parameter of the partial view (i.e. through the view data for the partial view).

I have similar situation tabs + grids.
Everthing is loading as it should, but when i click on page/column header (to sort) or refresh button in grid, i am being redirected to this partial view (even that i'm using Ajax() databinding).

/Customers/Index -> sort click -> /Customers/partial_GridActive?GridActive-orderBy=LastName-asc
Any ideas?
Thank you in advance.

Hi P,

Please make sure that the partial view renders the grids with different IDs (Names)

Kind regards,

Grids have had different names.

I have fix it, but solution for it is really weird. I need additional grid on the main site.
I put it in not displayed div, and load to it empty data list. And now grids from tabs work well. (sic)

<div style="display: none">
        <%= Html.Telerik().Grid<CCommerceWeb.Models.Customer>(new List<CCommerceWeb.Models.Customer>())
            .Name("Grid")
                    .DataKeys(p => p.Add(o => o.Email))  // BTW SIC too, that key needs to be string to get commands working
                    .DataBinding(dataBinding =>
                             dataBinding.Ajax()
                                 .Select("_GetMockCustomers", "Client")                        
                         .Delete("_DeleteAjaxEditing", "Client")
                         .Update("_DeleteAjaxEditing", "Client")
                    )       
        .Columns(columns =>
        {
            columns.Bound(o => o.Id).Width(100);
            columns.Bound(o => o.LastName);
            columns.Command(p => p.Delete()).Width(100);
            columns.Command(p => p.Edit()).Width(100);
        })      
        
        %>
    </div>

Hello P,

It seems that the grid JavaScript is not loaded initially - you could try to add its scripts manually in the ScriptRegistrar instead of adding the empty grid.

Best wishes,

Alex,

Can you please show a code sample of how passing a name and making it a parameter of the partial view would work?

Thanks!

Hello Jeff,

If you render the partial like this:

@{ var model = new string[] { "alpha", "beta", "ghamma" }; }

@Html.Partial("GridPartial", model, new ViewDataDictionary() { { "gridId", "someId" } })


you can use the ViewData in a partial like this:

@model string[]

@(Html.Telerik().Grid(Model)
    .Name((string)ViewData["gridId"]))
