    I am trying to achieve the following scenario. 

    1.) Use enters the search term
    2) Click search button
    3) Loads the Partial View of Results Grid, (Asynchronously loading the results)

    I am able to load data in the using server binding. (Passed all results in the model). I am hard time to achieve the same using Ajax data source binding. The results would load (Ajax Read operation is not invoked on the Grid)

    Below is my partial view 'QueryProspects.cshtml'
    @model string
                  .Columns(columns =>
                      columns.Bound(l => l.Id).Title("Name");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.CompanyName).Title("Company Name");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.PhoneNumber).Title("Phone");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.EmailAddress).Title("Email");
                  .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:450px" })
                  .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                      .Read(read => read.Action("SearchResults_Read", "Prospect", new { SearchText = Model }))
              public PartialViewResult loadSampleData(string SearchText)
                return PartialView("EditorTemplates/loadSampleData", SearchText);

    public ActionResult SearchResults_Read(string SearchText)
               var results= myService.GetByIdentifiers(SearchText, 20);
               var dsResult = results.ToDataSourceResult(new DataSourceRequest());
               return Json(dsResult);

    I am passing the searchText to partial view and thinking that my Grid view use that search text asynchronously would call 'SearchResults_Read' and passing the SearchText as action param.

    I appreciate any suggestions on why this is not working?

    Thank You,

    I figured it out. I just have to render the Grid on the partial view. Call render method at the end

    For eg:
           KendoGrid code//

    Thank You,

    Can you share sample code? When I add ".Render()", I get the error "Cannot implicitly convert type 'void' to 'object'.

    Note that when you are using Ajax binding the Grid and need to send additional data to an Action you should use the Data() method. Please examine the article below that describes the feature in more detail.

    Please modify your code as suggested in the article and let me know how the behavior changes.
