I have seen some example of the Grid ui for serer paging and sorting. It did show the property for server paging and sorting but didn't give much detail how it is going to use on the data source.
For example if i have 1000 recrods and I only want to show 20 on each page. I dont want to bring the whole lot and want to do the cutom paging. So I will se tthe custom paging on by saying Serverpaging=true.
Now when I clik on the next page , what message will go to my stored procedure so it returns the next 20. I saw an articla in telerik that your datasoure should be able to handle skip and top. Well but from where I am getting the skip and top?
I seen many examples but none showing what is sent to the data source from the code.
i am going to use the webapi to bind as a datasoruce and use the stored procedure or EF to access the data.
Can you show m some examples please so i can be certain how to pass sort, top, skip from the code. I know how to make change on the webapi to accomodat any parameter and all the way to database. .
