FlexiGrid “No Items”, response clearly shows data


Table is visible, looks fine, column headers show up, but after a split second of "processing, please wait..." the status goes to "No Items". Inspecting the response in the DOM shows the data is being returned properly from the web service, formatted as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <MyDataClass xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://tempuri.org/"> <Page>1</Page> <Rows> <MyDataRow> <request_id>13073</request_id> <status>501</status> <req_by_user_id>herbjm</req_by_user_id> </MyDataRow> ... .... </Rows> </MyDataClass>

Here is the flexigrid javascript in question:

$('#report').flexigrid({ url: 'reportdata.asmx/rptPendingServerRequestsFlexi', dataType: 'xml', colModel: [ { display: 'ID', name: 'request_id', width: 40, sortable: true, align: 'center' }, { display: 'Status', name: 'status', width: 180, sortable: true, align: 'left' }, { display: 'Requested By', name: 'req_by_user_id', width: 120, sortable: true, align: 'left' } ], searchitems: [ { display: 'ID', name: 'request_id' }, { display: 'Status', name: 'status', isdefault: true }, { display: 'Requested By', name: 'req_by_user_id' } ], sortname: "request_id", sortorder: "desc", usepager: false, title: 'Server Requests', useRp: false, rp: 30, showTableToggleBtn: false, singleSelect: true });

And for bonus points, how can I show the footer even if paging is diabled?

<strong>UPDATE:</strong> I inspected the DOM for the flexigrid demo and here is how their returned XML is formatted:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <rows> <page>1</page> <total>239</total> <row id='1'> <cell>1</cell> <cell>501</cell> <cell>Steve</cell> </row> <row id='2'> <cell>2</cell> <cell>501</cell> <cell>Fred</cell> </row> </rows>

I'm guessing that's why it's not working? To see how I'm building the response, please see this question: <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14203171/vb-net-return-json-object-with-multiple-types/14205299#14205299" rel="nofollow">vb.net return json object with multiple types?</a>


According to various information I have found <a href="http://www.kenthouse.com/blog/2009/07/fun-with-flexigrids/" rel="nofollow">here</a> and a couple of other locations, flexigrid requires the XML to have specific format:

rows - the row definition page - the current page number total - the total count of rows in this collection row - the row, with a unique property called id cell - each row must contain cells in the order that they are displayed on the grid

Since the MyDataClass was generated as a result of <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14203171/vb-net-return-json-object-with-multiple-types/" rel="nofollow">your previous question</a>, here are updated versions of those classes that will produce the desired output:

<XmlType("rows")> _ Public Class MyDataClass <XmlElement("page")> _ Public Property Page As Integer <XmlElement("total")> _ Public ReadOnly Property Total As Integer Get If Me.Rows IsNot Nothing Then Return Me.Rows.Count Else Return 0 End If End Get End Property <XmlElement("row")> _ Public Property Rows As List(Of MyDataRow) ' Parameterless constructor to support serialization. Public Sub New() Me.Rows = New List(Of MyDataRow) End Sub Public Sub New(wPage As Integer, ds As DataSet) Me.New() Me.Page = wPage For Each oRow As DataRow In ds.Tables(0).Rows Dim oMyRow As New MyDataRow oMyRow.Id = CInt(oRow("id")) oMyRow.Name = CStr(oRow("Name")) Me.Rows.Add(oMyRow) Next End Sub End Class <XmlType("row")> _ Public Class MyDataRow <XmlAttribute("id")> _ Public Property Id As Integer Private m_cCells As List(Of MyDataCell) <XmlIgnore()> _ Public WriteOnly Property Name As String Set(value As String) Me.AddCell("Name", value) End Set End Property <XmlElement("cell")> _ Public ReadOnly Property Cells As List(Of MyDataCell) Get Return m_cCells End Get End Property ' Parameterless constructor to support serialization Public Sub New() m_cCells = New List(Of MyDataCell) End Sub Public Sub AddCell(sCellName As String, sCellValue As String) m_cCells.Add(New MyDataCell(sCellName, sCellValue)) End Sub End Class Public Class MyDataCell <XmlIgnore()> _ Public Property Name As String <XmlText()> _ Public Property Value As String ' Parameterless constructor to support serialization Public Sub New() End Sub Public Sub New(sCellName As String, sCellValue As String) Me.New() Me.Name = sCellName Me.Value = sCellValue End Sub End Class


Guys have a look of this demo of flexiuigrid
