"Paging grid team, paging grid team..."

19 May 2008

Late last week, after listening to and reading the feedback we'd been getting from our customers, the main architects of the ASPxGridView, Mike and Andrew, added support for the default LINQ paging parameters to the grid. After some further testing over the weekend, they've now merged their changes into the main branch.

These changes will be available in the next minor release of DXperience, version 2008.1.4, and obviously in subsequent versions.

There will be an option to turn off our advanced paging capabilities (those which are optimized for our superior grouping, filtering, and summary facilities) and turn on the capability to pass default LINQ paging parameters to the ExecuteSelect() method. We're still discussing the name of this property so I can't reveal it just yet.

In this mode, the grid will essentially just function as a tabular set of rows. So if that's your main user scenario, you can set this property true — its default value is false — and the grid will just present a paged set of rows using the default LINQ paging statements.

If however you want the best-of-breed grouping, filtering, and summaries afforded by our paging technology in order to give your users the richest experience available anywhere and the ability to analyze data in the most performant manner, then leave this property at its default setting and party on.
