Here I am making use of Microsoft’s Northwind Database. You can download it from here.
The Model class consists of the following four properties.
public class Customer
    public string CustomerID { get; set; }
    public string ContactName { get; set; }
    public string City { get; set; }
    public string Country { get; set; }
Database Context
Once the Entity Framework is configured and connected to the database table, the Database Context will look as shown below.
Note: For beginners in ASP.Net Core and Entity Framework, please refer my article ASP.Net Core Razor Pages: Simple Entity Framework Tutorial with example. It covers all the information needed for connecting and configuring Entity Framework with ASP.Net Core.
using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore;
namespace WebGrid_Razor_Core
    public classDBCtx : DbContext
        public DBCtx(DbContextOptions<DBCtx> options) : base(options)
        public DbSet<Customer> Customers { get; set; }
Razor PageModel (Code-Behind)
The PageModel consists of following Handler method.
Handler method for handling GET operation
Inside this Handler method, the Top 10 records are fetched from the Customers table using Entity Framework and assigned to the public property Customers and returned to the Razor Page.
public class IndexModel : PageModel
    private DBCtx Context { get; }
    public IndexModel(DBCtx _context)
        this.Context = _context;
    public List<Customer> Customers { get; set; }
    public void OnGet()
        this.Customers = this.Context.Customers.Take(10).ToList();
Razor Page (HTML)
Inside the Razor Page, the NonFactors.Mvc.Grid namespace is inherited.
The IEnumerable collection of Customer Model class object is passed to the Grid function of the MVC6 Grid HTML Helper class.
The columns have been added for displaying using the Build method of the MVC6 Grid HTML Helper class. Inside the Build method the column collection is added and each column is assigned to the Model property using the Add method.
The Header Text of the column is set using the Titled function.
Finally, the mvc-grid.css file is inherited inside the Razor Page.
@model WebGrid_Razor_Core.Pages.IndexModel
@addTagHelper*, Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.TagHelpers
@using NonFactors.Mvc.Grid
    Layout = null;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <link href="~/css/mvc-grid/mvc-grid.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    @(Html.Grid(Model.Customers).Build(columns =>
            columns.Add(model => model.CustomerID).Titled("Customer ID");
            columns.Add(model => model.ContactName).Titled("Customer Name");
            columns.Add(model => model.City).Titled("City");
            columns.Add(model => model.Country).Titled("Country");
