How to resolve routing issues in IIS for Grid datasource binding?

1 min read

Routing issues in Grid remote data-binding can be resolved by using Action method of Url Helper.



When binding remote to Grid, routing problems may occur due to improper relative path. The proper relative path can be provided by using Action method of Url Helper.

Pass the action and controller name to Url.Action method in URL property of Grid DataSource and if the project is hosted in IIS under a virtual path then the parameter Request.Url.Scheme should be provided to recognize the virtual path while routing.


        .Datasource(ds => ds.URL(Url.Action("GetDataSource", "Grid", null, Request.Url.Scheme)).Adaptor(AdaptorType.UrlAdaptor))
        .PageSettings(page => { page.PageSize(9); })
        .Columns(col =>
            col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(75).Add();
            col.Field("CustomerID").HeaderText("Customer ID").Width(90).Add();
            col.Field("EmployeeID").HeaderText("Employee ID").TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).Width(90).Add();
            col.Field("ShipCity").HeaderText("Ship City").Width(80).Add();
            col.Field("ShipCountry").HeaderText("Ship Country").Width(100).Add();


The following screenshot displays the Grid control hosted in IIS with virtual path MVCB.
