Hi, All

Assume following typical scenario: I select an item and click edit (not inline editing) button, this forwards me to edit page. After saving, I'm coming to Index.
But after coming to index, I want to recover the grid state. I mean I want the grid to be same sorting, filtering and paging applied.
How can we achieve this? Taking into account the fact that I've around 40-50 grids, what's the best way/place to save the state and the best way/place to recover it.

I'm using Server Binding in all places.


Thanks in advance Telerik Team and Atanas.

Hi Akzhol The Kyrgyz,

You can use the extension method GridRouteValues(). To do so import the Telerik.Web.Mvc.Extensions. You can use it like this:

RouteValueDictionary routeValues = this.GridRouteValues();

where this is the instance of your controller class. Then you can use those route values in order to render an action link or to pass them to an action method.

Hi, Atanas.
Thanks for you quick response and solution.
Just wanted to put my solution here, in case someone will need it. 
I just overrode RedirectToAction in my BaseController and added following lines:
  if (routeValues == null) 
                return base.RedirectToAction(actionName, controllerName, this.GridRouteValues()); 
            routeValues.AddRange(this.GridRouteValues()); 
            return base.RedirectToAction(actionName, controllerName, routeValues); 

So 4 lines of code solved problem in all 40-50 grids :).

Thanks again.

If I am using Ajax Binding and I have ActionLinks for Edit, how do I pass gridroutevalues to my controller, Is GridRouteValues available for me when I am creating that Action Link?
