jqGrid paging workaround

I don't know why but jqgrid paging did not work with a wcf web service call despite using the pager class and all. Even in the project from where I borrowed the pager class, ( i.e. praneet's article) , paging was not working.

One workaround for this is to use the local data array. In local data array, the paging works. So get the data from web service and put it in a local array. Then bind this array to jqgrid. This is something which works.

Below is the .aspx and service code.
