Force a Grid to Refresh


Product Grid for Blazor


Is there anyway say I can have a button click event cause a Grid to redraw?

I'm using manual data operations, how do I use an observable collection to refresh the grid?


There are two different cases:

Automatic operations

For general cases, to refresh the rendered data in the Grid, use an ObservableCollection. To change the entire data collection, .Clear() the collection first to notify the grid that this old data is gone, then create a new one with the new data.

If you don't use an ObservableCollection, then create a new instance of the collection and set it to the Data parameter. A new instance provides a new reference, which fires the OnParametersSet event from the framework. This lets the Grid redraw. If you only add/remove items from the same collection, the reference to the entire data collection stays the same and the Grid is not notified of the change.

Refresh grid data with automatic data source operations

@* change grid data on external action. 
    Try grouping or filtering the grid, for example, then change its data through the button above it *@

<button @onclick="@ChangeGridData">change grid data</button>

<TelerikGrid Data="@MyData" Height="400px"
             Pageable="true" Sortable="true" Groupable="true"
             Resizable="true" Reorderable="true">
        <GridColumn Field="@(nameof(SampleData.Id))" Width="120px" />
        <GridColumn Field="@(nameof(SampleData.Name))" Title="Employee Name" Groupable="false" />
        <GridColumn Field="@(nameof(SampleData.Team))" Title="Team" />
        <GridColumn Field="@(nameof(SampleData.HireDate))" Title="Hire Date" />

@code {
    async Task ChangeGridData()
        Random rnd = new Random();
        var newData = Enumerable.Range(1, 30).Select(x => new SampleData
            Id = x,
            Name = "name " + rnd.Next(1, 100),
            Team = "team " + rnd.Next(1, 100),
            HireDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-rnd.Next(1, 100)).Date

        // create a new collection to get a new reference
        MyData = new List<SampleData>(newData);

    public List<SampleData> MyData = Enumerable.Range(1, 30).Select(x => new SampleData
        Id = x,
        Name = "name " + x,
        Team = "team " + x % 5,
        HireDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x).Date

    public class SampleData
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Team { get; set; }
        public DateTime HireDate { get; set; }

Manual operations

When using manual operations through the OnRead event, call the component's Rebind() method. This will force the component to fire its OnRead event.
