What is the best way to pass an external filter to a grid. Basically, I have a left side  filter like this https://www.coursera.org/courses, and I want to link the filter to a kendo Grid to retrieve the results, what is the best way to do that? Does Kendo has a built-in way to do this?

 

Thanks,

Hello Jianwei,

 

An easy way to achieve this functionality would be to set a filter expression using the filter method of the grid's data source when a selection from the left side bar.

Thank you for your reply. 

Does this approach support the server side filtering? If so, what would be the required method signature on the serve side?

Hello Jianwei,

Indeed it supports server filtering. Please refer to this blog post for a sample code and specifically how to work with the DataSourceRequest, which contains the current grid request information - page, sort, group and filter.
