First of all congratulations on this fantastic grid.
I am having similar problem. can you tell me if i am doing something wrong i am using java spring/jsp? Also i want to get rid of all the pagenation stuff from this grid and dumpo all the records on to the page, i can do that but not able to get rid of the page 1 of 1 and the buttons associated.
I want local sort, however when i press refresh it should be json. the refresh works fine as long as i do not sort the grid. once i sort, the datatype is set to local and the sort works locally taht is what i want. but once the sort is done the locaComplete or gridcomplete does not fire. how do i change the datatype back to json for refresh?
