I have a dropdown and an mvc grid. When the Submit button is clicked it called a method passing in the value from the dropdown and populates a grid. The problem is when the sort or paging is clicked I cannot figure how to pass the value from the dropdown. The example shows no parameters being passed in the the grid filtering the results with a startswith (I don't want to do).

@using (Html.BeginForm("Filtering", "Home"))
{
    <p>
        <label for="startsWith">
            <strong>Contact Name</strong> starts with:</label>
        @Html.DropDownList("Classifications", ViewData["ClassificationItems"] as SelectList, new { style = "width:100px;" })
        <button class="t-button t-state-default" type="submit">
        Apply</button>
    </p>
     
     
}
@(Html.Telerik().Grid(Model)
        .Name("Home")
        .Columns(columns =>
        {
            columns.Bound(o => o.CodeID).Width(120);
            columns.Bound(o => o.Title).Width(200);
            columns.Bound(o => o.Status);
        })
                    .DataBinding(dataBinding => dataBinding.Ajax().Select("_Filtering", "Home")
            .Sortable(sorting => sorting
            .SortMode(GridSortMode.SingleColumn)
            .AllowUnsort(true)
            .OrderBy(order =>
                {
                    order.Add(o => o.CodeID);
                })
             )
             .Pageable()
 
        )

Controller:
public ActionResult Filtering(string classifications = "")
        {
            ViewData["ClassificationItems"] = new SelectList(Classifications.List, "ClassificationText", "ClassificationText", classifications);
            ViewData["SelectedCategory"] = classifications ?? "Type";
 
            var codModels = new List<CodeModel>();
            var model = _codeRepository.Search(classifications).ToModel();
            return View(model);
        }
 
 
        [GridAction]
        public ActionResult _Filtering(string selectedCategory = "")
        {
            return View(new GridModel<CodeModel>
            {
                Data = _codeRepository.Search(selectedCategory).ToModel()
            });
        }
