Type Description

A GridViewExtension<RowType> object implementing the GridView functionality.


To enable binding grid columns to Model fields using lambdas, it is required to declare the GridView extension using the GridView<RowType> strongly-typed declaration method.


The partial View with the GridView extension does not need to be strongly-typed.

The code example below demonstrates how to declare the strongly-typed GridView with columns bound to data model fields via lambda expressions.

    // Grid displays instances of the Customer class.
    Html.DevExpress().GridView<Customer>(settings => {
        settings.Name = "grid";
        settings.CallbackRouteValues = new { Controller = "Home", Action = "GridViewPartial" };

        settings.KeyFields(m => m.CustomerID);

        // The following columns are bound to Model fields via lambdas.
        settings.Columns.Add(m => m.ContactName, column => {
            column.SortIndex = 0;
            column.SortOrder = DevExpress.Data.ColumnSortOrder.Ascending;
        settings.Columns.Add(m => m.CompanyName);
        settings.Columns.Add(m => m.Country);
        settings.Columns.Add(m => m.City);
        settings.Columns.Add(m => m.Region);
