Hello Telerik,
I need to access to a control defined in a different area from the one my page is currently in... for example if I'm in Admin area I want to access to a CommonController defined in the main Controller folder (so Area = null)

In the specific I'm using a dropdown but in future I'll use it for grid as well... my code is

@(Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
          .Name("cbAccount")
          .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width: 250px" })
          .DataTextField("Descr")
          .DataValueField("ID")
          .DataSource(source =>
          {
              source.Read(read =>
              {
                  read.Action("GetListaAccount", "Common");
              }).ServerFiltering(false);
          })
    )
It looks for a Common controller under the Admin area...I've tried specifing the routeValues as new {Area=null} or new {Area="Foo"} but I don't even see the call to the service...what am I doing wrong?

Thanks
Paolo

We've fixed by using new { Area = string.Empty }, is this correct?

Thanks

Hello,

Yes, the approach is correct. You should specify an empty string for the area if the controller is not in an area.
