Hi Siddartha

I am evaluating the Extension and am also interested if it will work 
with BE Layout.

In the changelog it says:

2011-06-08 Michael Birchler  <mbirchler at snowflake.ch>
* Added support for TYPO3 4.5 gridviews (thx to Marc Bastian Heinrichs)

That was done before your post, did you use an older version?
Else, you might file a bug report on
