Is JQGrid free?
Download JQGrid js file from http://www.trirand.com/blog/ . Is it free?
What is this http://www.trirand.net/demoaspnetmvc.aspx ? . I see price and license.
Someone clarify please.
jqGrid can be used to fill data from almost any web service providing data in JSON or XML format. So you can write in ASP.NET MVC a Controller method which provide pure data in the JSON format and use View with empty
<table> having only an
id attribute defined. If you want you can implement the “data provider” as ASMX or WCF service. You can also combine any from the solutions in one site, so you will be free in the implementation.
Look at the other question where you can find some links with examples of the usage of jqGrid with ASP.NET MVC.

So, yes, it’s free.
If you are looking to include jqGrid in your ASP.net MVC application, there are these two components you need:
- jqGrid – the free jQuery grid plugin plugin
- Lib.Web.Mvc – the free ASP.net MVC strongly typed helper
…free jqGrid. It’s the fork of jqGrid which I develop after Tony have changed the licence agreement of jqGrid and started Guriddo jqGrid JS which is not more free. I implemented many new features in free jqGrid. …
