Display Data in GridView Using MVC

For displaying data in a GridView using MVC, use the following procedure. 

Display grid data

Add the following action in page:
  1. public ActionResult GetDetails()  
  2.   {  
  3.       var data = DB.tblStuds.ToList();  
  4.       return PartialView(data);  
  5.   }  
Add a partial view for this action. Right-Click on the preceding then select Action > Add View then enter the ViewName the same as the action name. Now, check the "Create as a Partial View" checkbox.



Here, we have index.cshtml, where we can see a Show Data Button, for which we have an ajax call. it's for getting stud details.
