Overview (Excerpt from Microsoft.com)

Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview is an integrated development environment that seamlessly spans the entire life cycle of software creation, including architecture, user interface design, code creation, code insight and analysis, code deployment, testing, and validation. This release adds support for the most advanced Microsoft platforms, including the next version of Windows (code-named “Windows 8”) and Windows Azure, and enables you to target platforms across devices, services, and the cloud.

The .NET Framework 4.5 Developer Preview is also installed as part of Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview.

Note: This prerelease software will expire on June 30, 2012. To continue using Visual Studio 11 after that date, you will have to install a later version of the software.


Pagination / Sorting not works in Custombinding enabled Telerik mvc grid ( v 2011.2.712 ) !

September 19, 2011

I experienced this issue in my development and lost some time figuring out!

Problem description:

Let’s say I have start date & end date and go button for the search and the search result will get displayed in the MVC grid. If I fire rebinding from JavaScript with both the date values, the grid would populate fine. But if I go for sorting/pagination, the “gridcommand” object holds only pagesize and pageno and misses the filter values for start & end date and grid goes with the default data population. But it worked fine with the previous version 2010.3.1318.

The solution is here:

“The additional parameter values passed through Grid’s client-side rebind method are not presisted on subsequent rebinds”

In previous version, as a side effect of another issue, when additional value is passed through the rebind client-side method, it was persisted during the subsequent rebinds. In order to achieve same behavior with current version, the DataBinding event should be use to re-assign the value.

Here you go for the examples:

Hope, it helped!
