Bootstrap Server Side Pagination - alternative to data tables

Background

Most of the Web developers are familiar with the Datatable.Net for pagination. DataTables can integrate seamlessly with Bootstrap using Bootstrap's table styling options to present a consistent interface with your Bootstrap driven site / app. The main disadvantage with Data table.net is it is applying the pagination at the client side and for the large data set it can take minutes to load the data. Like every other designer I also faced the problem with Data table.net. So what is the best option to replace the client side paging and searching. So I forced to create a custom module to do the pagination and searching. The below sample don’t support the sorting, but got an option to extend the functionality. Please check my Next Post for sorting functionality
The technologies used include, MVC 4.0, HTML5, Bootstarp.css, Knockout. js, Ajax, Web Api 2.0, Linq to SQL and C#.

Knockout.js Model’s

Filter Model

var filter = function () {

self.enablePrev = ko.observable(true);
self.enableNext = ko.observable(true);

Adarsh Log Model
var adarshLog = function () {
var self = this;
self.Id = ko.observable('');

self.adarshLogList = ko.observableArray([]);
self.filterModel = new ko.observable(new filter);

How to write secure mvc application using encrypting URL

There are lots ways available to write the secure Mvc application. In my experience I came across lots of secure application in public facing. I want to tell about some of the mechanism I followed.
1- encrypting the URL Parameters and preserving id's encrypted on the client side
1- I always make sure if I pass Id or any sensitive data into the view always make sure it's encrypted. By doing so make sure if we forced to use HTML.hidden or HTML.hidden for have the encrypted values, in action link if I pass any parameters from the client side (eg:- edit or create or navigating between different actions we can make sure that all the values are encrypted)
During the design of the actions results if it's http get I usually encrypt the sensitive data
[httpget]
Public actionresult display()
{
TestModel testModel=new TestModel();
testModel.id= encrypt(id);
Return View(testModel);
}
[httppost]
Public ActionResult Display(string id)
{
Guid d_id= new Guid(decrypt(id));
