    I have created two views ​Shipment and Shipment Lines,

    The Shipment has the header info, and of course the lines is the details.  How do I have an action link form the parent grid to the child view, and pass the correct order Id (the model) to the line read action?

     This is the Shipment View:  

            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(c => c.CompanyId).Width(160);
                columns.Bound(c => c.VendAccount).Width(120)
                columns.Bound(c => c.DeliveryMode).Width(120);
                columns.Bound(c => c.VendShipId).Width(120);
                columns.Bound(c => c.ShipmentDate).Width(140).Format("{0:MM/dd/yy}");
                columns.Bound(c => c.EstimateShipmentDate).Width(140).Format("{0:MM/dd/yy}");
                columns.Bound(c => c.SourceOfData).Hidden(true).IncludeInMenu(false);
                columns.Bound(c => c.RecVersion).Title("Rec Version").Hidden(true).IncludeInMenu(false);
                columns.Bound(c => c.RecId).Title("RecId").Hidden(true).IncludeInMenu(false);
                columns.Bound(c => c.CompanyId).ClientTemplate(@Html.ActionLink("Lines", "Lines", "Shipment", new { CompanyId = "#=CompanyId#", RecId = "#=RecId#" }, "").ToHtmlString()).Width(120);
                columns.Command(command => {
            .ToolBar(toolbar =>
                toolbar.Create().Text("Add Shipment").HtmlAttributes(new { @title = "Add Shipment" });
            .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.PopUp))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.CompanyId))
                .Read(read => read.Action("Read", "Shipment").Type(HttpVerbs.Post))
                .Create(create => create.Action("Create", "Shipment").Type(HttpVerbs.Post))
                .Update(update => update.Action("Update", "Shipment").Type(HttpVerbs.Post))
                .Destroy(destroy => destroy.Action("Destroy", "Shipment"))

    And the Lines View: (I know the model has the PurchaseShipment data, I had textboxes populating it for testing)

    @using Portal.Model.DAX
    @model PurchaseShipment
          .Columns(columns =>
              columns.Bound(c => c.CompanyId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.ShipId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.PurchId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.PurchaseOrderId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.PurchaseOrderDate);
              columns.Bound(c => c.InventTransId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.LineNum);
              columns.Bound(c => c.ItemId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.UnitId);
              columns.Bound(c => c.QuantityOrdered);
              columns.Bound(c => c.QuantityShipped);
              columns.Bound(c => c.RecVersion);
              columns.Bound(c => c.RecId);
              columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); }).Width(180);
          .ToolBar(toolbar =>
          .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine))
          .Sortable(sortable =>
          .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
              .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.CompanyId))
              .Read(read => read.Action("Lines_Read", "Shipment"))
              .Update(update => update.Action("Lines_Update", "Shipment"))


    So the issue is that when the read for the lines happens it doesn't have the Shipment Model available so I can grab the correct line data.  How do I pass from one view to the next, and pass the model to the read action?

    Hello technotes,


    Based on the provided code I am not completely sure at what point the details Grid should be shown (on row selection from the first Kendo UI Grid for example).


    I would need some more information about your scenario in order to provide proper solution for the current case.
