Summary: jqGrid needs a data source to populate itself. So far we have been using a local array that contained some records. But most of the time you will need an external source like a database or a web service. Before we learn about populating the grid using a web service, we will make couple of stops to explore different jQuery functionalities that help us get some data from the server. Specifically today we will experiment with the load function, learn more about the parameters and make calls to retrieve HTML content. In the next few videos, we will explore some more functionality before moving back into the jqGrid.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
