Bootstrap Controls for ASP.NET Core are in maintenance mode. We don’t add new controls or develop new functionality for this product line. Our recommendation is to use the ASP.NET Core Controls suite.

The Grid View control supports data binding in server mode, which is designed to work with large datasets. Using this binding mode, the data-aware operations (sorting, filtering, grouping, etc.) are performed on the data server. This technique significantly improves the Grid View's speed and responsiveness.

The BindToXPO method is used to establish server-mode data binding using the DevExpress eXpress Persistent Objects for .NET (XPO) ORM. The following code demonstrates the described functionality in detail.

    .Columns(columns => {
    .Routes(routes => routes
        .MapRoute(r => r.Action("Binding").Controller("GridView")))
    .BindToXPO(new UnitOfWork(), typeof(Email))
