EnhancedGrid with JsonRestQueryStore fetches additional pages

When using pagination with a combination of cookie-plugin-enabled + nestedSorted-enabled + sortFields set in a grid based on JsonQueryRestStore?, a reload of the page triggers a fetch of the second page.

The test html below is a simplified version of the pagination test in dojo with a few grid plugins enabled and sortFields set on the grid:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
<html dir="ltr">
        <title>Test Pagination plugin of dojox.grid.EnhancedGrid</title>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"></meta>
        <style someProperty="text/css">

                @import "dojo/dojox/grid/enhanced/resources/claro/EnhancedGrid.css";

        <script type="text/javascript" src="dojo/dojo/dojo.js" djConfig="isDebug:false, debugAtAllCosts: true, parseOnLoad: true"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">

                var layout = [{
                        cells: [
                                { field: "id", name:"Index", datatype:"number", width: 4},
                                { field: "data", name:"Data", datatype:"string", width: 10}
                var plugins = {
                        nestedSorting: true,
                        cookie: true,
                        pagination: {
                                pageSizes: ["10", "25", "30", "50", "100"],// Array, custom the items per page button
                                position: "top" // String, custom the position of the pagination bar. There're two options: top, bottom

                jqueryreststore = new{target:"test.php&restargs="});
                var grid;
                        grid = dijit.byId("grid");

<body class="claro">
<h1>EnhancedGrid with pagination + JsonQueryRestStore</h1>
        <div id="gridContainer" style="height: 900px; width: 500px;">
                <div id="grid" sortFields="[{attribute: 'data', descending: true}]"
dojoType="dojox.grid.EnhancedGrid" store="jqueryreststore" structure="layout" plugins="plugins"></div>

The underlying php code that simply creates dummy data is:


function parseArgs($args, &$range) {
        if (preg_match("/\[:(.*)]$/", $args, $matches)) {
                $range[0] = 0;
                $range[1] = intval($matches[1]);
        } else {
                $tmp = preg_split("/:|\[|\]/", $args);
                $range[0] = intval($tmp[count($tmp)-3]);
                $range[1] = intval($tmp[count($tmp)-2]);

if (array_key_exists("restargs", $_GET))
        $restargs = $_GET["restargs"];
if (preg_match('/^\/(.*)$/', $restargs, $matches)) {
        $restargs = $matches[1];

if ($restargs !== "") {
        parseArgs($restargs, $range);

$hdrtxt = 'Content-Range: items ' . $range[0] . '-' . ($range[1]-1) . '/1000';
header('Content-type: text/html');

echo "[";
$printstarted = false;
for ($i = $range[0]; $i < $range[1]; $i++)
        if ($printstarted)
                echo ",";
                $printstarted = true;
        echo "{id: \"" . $i . "\", data: \"Data " . $i . "\"}";
echo "]";


The first time that the page is loaded, the requested range is 0-24. When the page is refreshed, initially the first page is fetched and shown, followed by a fetch and display of the second page. In some cases where the data is huge, say with more columns, a lot more consecutive pages are getting fetched and displayed one after another.

Note that even though the second page is fetched and the display in pagination bar shows 26-50 items, the highlighted page in the pagination bar still stays as '1' even though it is really the second page which is being shown.

Adding the following options to the grid resolves the additional fetch, but leaves the pagination bar empty and seems to virtually populate the entire data-set so that when the grid is scrolled down, data is fetched in batches. Running grid._refresh() from the firebug console re-fetches the data and populates the pagination bar correctly.

autoHeight="25" rowsPerPage="25"

I just found this ticket after hitting the same bug (and already created a testcase that I already attached a few seconds ago): As the 3 plugins are critical to my application I'd like the priority of this ticket to be raised.

Thanks and regards,

Workaround: To disable cookie-storing of nested-sort-order (which seems to be the cause of this problem) simply add following lines to your page:

dojox.grid.enhanced.plugins.NestedSorting.prototype._loadNestedSortingProps = function(sortInfo, grid){

DojoX Grid and EnhancedGrid are deprecated in favor of dgrid and gridx.

You should upgrade your code to use one of those two grids.

We will consider patches to the old DojoX Grid code though.
