Database Server Mode Limitations
In server mode, ASPxCardView does not have simultaneous access to bound data in its entirety. This imposes some limitations on the grid's features, which are still available in regular binding mode. See the list below for information on features that are not supported in database server mode:
- filtering and sorting data by display text (not by edit values);
- case-sensitive filtering. The grid converts a search string to lower-case before filtering;
custom sorting (ASPxCardView.CustomColumnSort);
sorting and filtering for unbound columns whose values are provided by the ASPxCardView.CustomUnboundColumnData event. These features are still supported for unbound columns that are populated with expressions (see CardViewColumn.UnboundExpression).
