Bind data to gridview with JQuery or JSON in

Mar 31, 2012

Here I will explain how to bind data to gridview with JQuery or JSON using c#, or bind data to 
gridview with JQuery or JSON in using c#,

In previous article I explained
JQuery UI AutoComplete textbox with database and call pagemethods in JQuery. Now I am using those concepts to explain how to bind data to gridview using JQuery/JSON and display it on aspx page in
To implement this concept first we need to design table in database give name as UserInformation to save user details in database.

Column Name
Data Type
Allow Nulls
int(set identity property=true)
After completion table design enter some of user details in database to work for our sample.
Now create new website and write the following code in your aspx page

<html xmlns="">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title> Bind Data to Gridview using JQuery or JSON</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
type: "POST",
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
url: "Default.aspx/BindDatatable",
data: "{}",
dataType: "json",
success: function(data) {
for (var i = 0; i < data.d.length; i++) {
$("#gvDetails").append("<tr><td>" + data.d[i].UserId + "</td><td>" + data.d[i].UserName + "</td><td>" + data.d[i].Location + "</td></tr>");
error: function(result) {
<style type="text/css">
border:1px solid black;
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:GridView ID="gvDetails" runat="server">
<HeaderStyle BackColor="#DC5807" Font-Bold="true" ForeColor="White" />
If you observe above code in header section I added script file link by using that file we have a chance to interact with JQuery. If you want to know about script function mentioned in header section check these posts JQuery UI AutoComplete textbox with database and call pagemethods in JQuery. Here I explained that function clearly.

Now open code behind file and add the following namespaces

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Collections.Generic;
After that write the following code in code behind

C#.NET Code

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
/// <summary>
/// This method is used to bind dummy row to gridview to bind data using JQuery
/// </summary>
private void BindColumnToGridview()
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
gvDetails.DataSource = dt;
gvDetails.Rows[0].Visible = false;

public static UserDetails[] BindDatatable()
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
List<UserDetails> details = new List<UserDetails>();

using (SqlConnection con=new SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB;Integrated Security=true"))
using (SqlCommand cmd=new SqlCommand("select TOP 10 UserId,UserName,Location from UserInformation",con))
SqlDataAdapter da= new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
foreach (DataRow dtrow in dt.Rows)
UserDetails user=new UserDetails();
user.UserId = dtrow["UserId"].ToString();
user.UserName = dtrow["UserName"].ToString();
user.Location = dtrow["Location"].ToString();
return details.ToArray();
public class UserDetails
public string UserId { get; set; }
public string UserName { get; set; }
public string Location { get; set; }
If you observe above code in page load I written one method BindColumnToGridview() in this method I am binding columns and row values to datatable and assigned that value to gridview this one condition is necessary to bind gridview with jquery because if it contain header part and data then only we have chance to bind data correctly to gridview with JQuery.

Another Method BindDatatable() in this method I am getting data from database and converting datatable to array and returing that value because Jquery can’t understand DataTable, DataSet or DataReader objects because of that I converted datatable to array string format and returned it.

VB.NET Code:

Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Web.Services

Partial Class VBSample
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

If Not IsPostBack Then
End If
End Sub
''' <summary>
''' This method is used to bind dummy row to gridview to bind data using JQuery
''' </summary>
Private Sub BindColumnToGridview()
Dim dt As New DataTable()
gvDetails.DataSource = dt
gvDetails.Rows(0).Visible = False
End Sub

<WebMethod()> _
Public Shared Function BindDatatable() As UserDetails()
Dim dt As New DataTable()
Dim details As New List(Of UserDetails)()

Using con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB;Integrated Security=true")
Using cmd As New SqlCommand("select TOP 10 UserId,UserName,Location from UserInformation", con)
Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
For Each dtrow As DataRow In dt.Rows
Dim user As New UserDetails()
user.UserId = dtrow("UserId").ToString()
user.UserName = dtrow("UserName").ToString()
user.Location = dtrow("Location").ToString()
End Using
End Using
Return details.ToArray()
End Function
Public Class UserDetails
Public Property UserId() As String
Return m_UserId
End Get
Set(ByVal value As String)
m_UserId = Value
End Set
End Property
Private m_UserId As String
Public Property UserName() As String
Return m_UserName
End Get
Set(ByVal value As String)
m_UserName = Value
End Set
End Property
Private m_UserName As String
Public Property Location() As String
Return m_Location
End Get
Set(ByVal value As String)
m_Location = Value
End Set
End Property
Private m_Location As String
End Class
End Class
