    I have a grid where I am changing the sort in javascript when a certain action is performed.

    The grid is paged, and when the sort occurs, it stays on the same page. I want the pager to reset (back to page 1).

    This could be accomplished by:

    var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
    grid.dataSource.sort({ field: "Name", dir: "asc" });;

    However - both the sort and page methods cause the grid to refresh. (Read)  Is there a way to avoid the multiple refreshes?  i.e. Set the sort without refreshing the grid, then calling page(1) to refresh the grid?

    Hello Justin,

    In order to avoid multiple refreshes when trying to sort, filter, or page, it is recommended to use the query method of the Kendo UI DataSource; you can read more about it here.

    This method will allow you to send the sort parameters and the desired page all at once.

    I hope this helps!
