The Telerik UI Grid for ASP.NT MVC enables you to populate it with data by using server and Ajax data binding.
- The server binding binds the Grid to a supplied model and the Grid makes
GETrequests when binding.
- The Ajax binding makes Ajax requests to get the data for the Grid.
The following table lists the basic feature differences between the server and Ajax binding.
|Feature||Server Binding||Ajax Binding|
|Full-Page Updates||The Grid makes HTTP GET requests to ASP.NET MVC action methods which cause a full-page refresh.||The Grid makes Ajax requests which cause partial page update. The Grid retrieves only the data needed for the current page.|
