table. Is there another way to accomplish and still retain the ease and functionality of a gridview, or must the table be created via client-side script? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

you can use DataTables and with singalr bind gridview with json data from server.

Thanks so much for the response. I am confused with your answer. Are you saying you can actually databind a gridview control (if so, how), or are you saying build a datatable in memory and then use client side script to build the HTML?

Of course it should be created via client-side script. Otherwise how it's possible to update the client interface? :)

So the short answer is that you lose all of advanced functionality that the gridview and nother controls provides in favor of real time updating? Seems like a step backwards from all of the advancements provided by Asp.net and a return to client-side HTML
generation circa 2000. Seems like there must be a beter way.

That's one of the reason why you shouldn't use asp.net webforms. It does not give you a good control over the UI. You can still update the paging, sorting etc. but I don't see why bother with that. I would simply use MVC with jqGrid.
