Hi ,

I am also getting same problem.

Scenario is :

I have a view and controller named ClientInfo and here client info is coming from DB by serach doing from view and


public ActionResult GetClientInfo()
        ClientAccountViewModel model = new ClientAccountViewModel();   // binding  drop downs in model for search drop down
        return View(model);
public ActionResult GetClientInfo(ClientAccountViewModel viewModel)

        string SearchCriteria = viewModel.SearchCriteria;
        string SearchBy = viewModel.SearchBy;

        var data = objAccountService.GetClientInfo(SearchCriteria, SearchBy);
        ClientAccountViewModel modal = new ClientAccountViewModel()
                                            FirstName = data.FirstName,
                                            Email = data.Email,
                                            Phone = data.Phone


        return View(modal);

Now from same view I am calling a partial view "DisplayAccount" which show accounts related to an Client

@Html.Action("DisplayAccount", "ClientAccount", new { ClientID = Model.ClientId })

and Action method for this is
public ActionResult DisplayAccount(int ClientID)
// data in model
return PartialView(listAccountModel);

here I have made paging true by

I can't reproduce the problem. I try to render grid in a separate action using Html.Action helper - paging works. I pushed me changes to the repository. Please see how I do that -

Which version of the grid are you using?

I saw your demo url
but no help

Iam using
Version is 3

I have downloaded Grid.Mvc.3 from internet and all files are added in my project

this is the url when main view loads :
and shows a search functionality

and onclick of serach button this view again loads with serached data

and from this main view I am calling partial view by passing client Id and this brings account data of a client by this method :

@Html.Action("DisplayAccount", "ClientAccount", new { ClientID = Model.ClientId })

okay ?

public ActionResult DisplayAccount(int ClientID)
// listAccountModel = data in model from database
return PartialView(listAccountModel);

this is show in main view with grid added with rows ( all fine)

but when I click on page 2 of grid
it serach for url


as for paging your anchor buttons are like this -

and it adds page url in front

and not call DisplayAccount action (I think it should)

so, where is the problem

do I need to call this function separately from view on click of page no 2
or should It do automatically

No one knows answer for this . please reply ?
Is it due to search functionality on main view
then how should design this or code this ?

You need to understand why you app not available at /ClientAccount/GetClientInfo?grid-page=2 url. It seems an error occurs. Try to temporary remove public ActionResult GetClientInfo(ClientAccountViewModel viewModel) method (maybe MVC cannot select a route.

How your search form looks like? Which version of MVC are you using?
