WebGrid is most powerful tools to list records from database in web application. Like ASP.NET Web Forms GridView, DataList, ASP.NET MVC didn't had any built in data controls. WebGrid that does almost all work of ASP.NET Web Form GridView and it is simple enough too.
ViewBag.Title = "Index";
var grid = new WebGrid(Model);
<h1>Employee List </h1>
public class HomeController : Controller
forumEntities db = new forumEntities();
public ActionResult Index()
List<Employee> Emplst = db.Employee.ToList();
