I am working on a new asp.net mvc-5 web application, and i have search for a web grid that can provide these main features:-
after doing a search for around 2 weeks , i did not find any web grid that is 100% designed to work with asp.net mvc 5, as most of the grids will prevent me from benefiting from the asp.net mvc main features such as:-
using html helpers such as
Html.DisplayNameFor , as in most web grids i need to manually write the table header labels.
using data annotation. as most of the grids will work directly with json returned from action methods, so any data annotations are going to be ignored.
Today I found the asp.net MVC web grid http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.helpers.webgrid%28v=vs.111%29.aspx
But I have these two questions:-
can anyone adivce about using the asp.net MVC web grid ? and what are the main features i can benefit from?
is there any documentation about how to use the WebGrid inside the following; asp.net mvc5 + Razor view + using server side (not client side) to implement filtering, sorting and search ?
Can anyone adivce on this please? Thanks.
