We can define WebGrid to display data on a web page using an HTML table element. It renders tabular data in a very simple manner with support for custom formatting of columns, paging, sorting.

The main properties in WebGrid are:

  • Source – Where your data comes from. Usually the model passed by the controller action.
  • DefaultSort – Here you can define how the data will be sorted. Just provide the column name here.
  • RowsPerPage – Number of records that will be shown on table.
  • CanPage – Allows paging.
  • CanSort – Allows sorting by clicking on column title.


@model IList<ForumMVC.Employee>

    ViewBag.Title = 'Index';
    var grid = new WebGrid(Model, canPage: true, rowsPerPage: 5,
    selectionFieldName: 'selectedRow',ajaxUpdateContainerId: 'gridContent');

<h1>Employee List </h1>
<div id='gridContent'>
    @grid.GetHtml(tableStyle: 'webGrid',
            headerStyle: 'header',
            alternatingRowStyle: 'alt',
            selectedRowStyle: 'select',
            columns: grid.Columns(
            grid.Column('Emp_ID', 'Emp_ID'),
            grid.Column('Emp_Name', ' Emp_Name'),
            grid.Column('Emp_Sal', 'Emp_Sal', style: 'Emp_Sal'),
            grid.Column('Location', 'Location')
<style type='text/css'>
    .webGrid { margin: 4px; border-collapse: collapse; width: 500px;  background-color:#B4CFC3;}
    .header { background-color: #C1D4E6; font-weight: bold; color: #FFF; }
    .webGrid th, .webGrid td { border: 1px solid #C0C0C0; padding: 5px; }
    .alt { background-color: #E4E9F5; color: #000; }
    .gridHead a:hover {text-decoration:underline;}
    .description { width:auto}
    .select{background-color: #71857C}
