I am afraid that I am not completely sure that I understand what you are trying to achieve.
With regards to the title of the thread I believe you are trying initially to populate the Kendo UI Grid for ASP.NET MVC from the model object, but not to send a request to the read action method. This is actually possible using the following syntax:
The @model SampleProject.ViewModels.RegisterViewModel object exists only on the server side. When the update/create/delete operation is performed on the client-side there is no @model SampleProject.ViewModels.RegisterViewModel object on the client-side. This is why Kendo UI DataSource should post to update/create/delete action methods in order to sync changes made on the client-side with the server.
Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans?
Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
