    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. .

    Hi Amir,

    You can check out the following article from our documentation that explains how to implement server-side data operations, and provides both server, and client-side configuration examples:

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Amir,

    I'm also trying to put together a stored procedure as a source for our grid. Did you manage to figure out how to pass it the right parameters to do sorting and filters and just return the correct records for the current page of the grid?

    Hello, Tommy,

    In general, the Kendo UI Grid will send the sorting and filtering parameters to the server in the following format:

    Then on the server, these parameters have to be used to retrieve the desired data from the database.

    Please have in mind that Amir is inactive from nearly a year, so he may not be able to respond.
