Hi!

I have my solution setup as follows (image also attached):

Data <--> Business <--> WCF Service <--> Intranet <--> WCF Client <--> Website

I have attempted to implement paging but it is not the most optimal way. Here is the code that starts with the website and ends in the Data Layer:

View:

@(Html.Kendo().Grid(Model.SearchResults)
    .Name("GridSearchResults")
    .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height: 400px" })
    .EnableCustomBinding(true)
    .Columns(columns =>
    {
        columns.Bound(p => p.ParkingCardId).Title("Id").Width(80).ClientTemplate("<a href='" + Url.Action("ParkingCardDetail", "CardRequest", new { parkingCardId = "#= ParkingCardId #'" }) + ">#= ParkingCardId #</a>");
        columns.Bound(p => p.Name).Title("Name");
        columns.Bound(p => p.Company).Title("Company");
        columns.Bound(p => p.CardType).Title("Card Type").Width(100);
        columns.Bound(p => p.DrivingLicenseNo).Title("License #");
        columns.Bound(p => p.SeasonPassNo).Title("Season Pass #");
        columns.Bound(p => p.Status).Title("Status");
        columns.Bound(p => p.ReceiptNo).Title("Receipt #").Width(140).ClientTemplate("<a href='" + Url.Action("Report1", "Ajax", new { billNo = "#= ReceiptNo #'" }) + ">#= ReceiptNo #</a>");
    })
    .Pageable()
    .Scrollable()
    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
        .Ajax()
        .PageSize(30)
        .Read(read => read
            .Action("IndexResults", "CardRequest")
            .Data("searchExtraParameters")
        )
    )
)


Controller:

public async Task<ActionResult> Index()
{
    ViewBag.Module = (int)PageModule.SearchCardRequests;
    await GetMasterLookForRequest(lookupManager, billingManager);
  
    return View(new ParkingCardSearchViewModel());
}
  
public async Task<ActionResult> IndexResults([DataSourceRequest(Prefix = "Grid")]  DataSourceRequest request, int? companyId, int? categoryId, int? serviceId, int? paymentModeId, int? statusId, int? extraSearch, string extraSearchKeywords)
{
    ViewBag.Module = (int)PageModule.SearchCardRequests;
  
    #region Apply paging
  
    if (request.PageSize == 0)
    {
        request.PageSize = 30;
    }
  
    var pager = new PagingHelper { Skip = 0, Take = request.PageSize };
  
    if (request.Page > 0)
    {
        pager.Skip = (request.Page - 1) * request.PageSize;
    }
  
    #endregion
  
    // Get results
    var results = await searchManager.GetCardRequestForSearch(pager, companyId, categoryId, serviceId, paymentModeId, statusId, extraSearch, extraSearchKeywords);
  
    var result = new DataSourceResult()
    {
        Data = results.Item2, // Process data (paging and sorting applied)
        Total = results.Item1 // Total number of records
    };
  
    //Return the result as JSON.
    return Json(result);

Result:
It seems that the data on the grid is not changing when changing page and everytime, I'm reading the whole data just to get a new page. Is there a better way to do this?

Hi Shafi,

In order to return only the items for the current page of the Grid you can implement custom paging. Please check out the Custom Ajax Binding example in the offline sample application that illustrates how you can implement the functionality.

I studied that example but it doesn't solve my issue. I have a series of layers including a point where a service is wrapping the actual database.

  • In the said example, the website has direct access to Entity Framework. In my case, my frontend has no database related references.
  • In the sample, data is inferred int an IQueryable and then Kendo's filtering, sorting, and grouping is used based on the request parameter on the API. is finally executed once is called. I cannot pass Kendo classes all the way back to the data layer.
var dataContext = new SampleEntities();
// Convert to view model to avoid JSON serialization problems due to circular references.
IQueryable<OrderViewModel> orders = dataContext.Orders.Select(o => new OrderViewModel
{
    OrderID = o.OrderID,
    ShipCity = o.ShipCity,
    ShipCountry = o.ShipCountry,
    ShipName = o.ShipName
});
orders = orders.ApplyOrdersFiltering(request.Filters);

This code is being executed on the controller. I need to have the bring in the data from the from a service through a client. It already has to . Classes like .Filters are not available on server->DAL side.

Hello Shafi,

In the provided code you are using Data to pass additional information to the Read Action. Having that information on the server you can use it in the Controller to build the query and request the data from the service.

Then, you would need to ensure that the custom logic implemented in the service is using the additional parameters for querying the database.

Moreover, if you would like to further customize the way data is retrieved you can handle the paging, sorting, grouping, filtering operations manually. Please examine the following article that describes the approach:


Using the parameters and passing the data back to the Grid component will be similar. The different part would be accessing the data from your custom service. However, that would depend on the custom implementation you have in place.
