Flexigrid with asp

***This version is an outdated version of my script which has some display errors with IE. Please take a look at asp with flexigrid V2.***

I came across a pretty nifty script called Flexigrid. Basically it allows you to take information from a database using JSON or XML and display it on a pretty nifty grid with search, pagination, sorting and some other cool features.

Anyway, all of the examples use PHP to generate the XML or JSON so I decided to do it in ASP using a microsoft access database.

Download link removed. Please see the updated post here.

    Sorry about that Roberto. The problem is to do with the json code that is generated. I’ve fixed it but haven’t had a chance to upload the changes. I’ll get the new stuff online today for you.

    How dow i get this to work for asp.net

  • http://www.jamesowers.co.uk James

    I’m pretty much a novice with asp.net so I wouldn’t really be able to do something like this.

    If somebody has created something like this for asp.net let me know and I’ll be happy to add it to the site.

    Thank you for providing the ASP version of the FlexiGrid. I just have a problem on using the Quick Search feature. How do I have to call the Search function?


  • http://www.jamesowers.co.uk James

    What is the problem you’re having? As long as you have the correct fields listed in the javascript it should just work.

    Also just a quick note to remind people that this was V1 of the script, there are some errors with IE6 not displaying data.

    V2 has these errors fixed: http://jamesowers.co.uk/asp-tutorials/63/flexigrid-with-asp-version-2/

    Hi, I’m new to the Flexigrid. I’ve a question on how to capture the table toggle button. With this feature, I can show/hide the table. If I hide the table, I want to adjust other UI’s height. Is there a way I can capture the event?
