    Hi,

    I'd like to implement remote group paging, as seen here: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/grouppaging

    Unfortunately, my API endpoint returns "dynamic" data via a stored procedure, rather than a consistent set of columns like api/customers, so I need to hand-code each grid READ request and return a properly formatted server-response that the grid will understand. 

    I need to know what kind of READ request "payloads" (i.e. the JSON data the grid will send to the server per the grid.dataSource.transport's read URL) the grid will send to the server, code an endpoint matching that "payload", and also format the endpoint's response based on the request.

    Does anyone have an example of this? Does my question make sense? 

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    You can check what parameters does the request to the end-point has by inspecting the requests in the browser developer console. Moreover the format of the response is specific and should be matched exactly, you can also check it in the console. If MVC or ASP.NET Core are used one can use our ToDataSourceResult metho, here is the code for the controller action.
