    im using mvc to bind my autocomplete list and use it,to do so,my controller is like:

     public Jsonresult Index()
                //List of parks and turbines while searching

                var turbineWindparkList=(from d in DB.Accessinfo
                                         select new OverViewAutoComeplete {

                return Json(turbineWindparkList, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);



    in my view :


    <div><input id="inputAutoComplete" /></div>
              <script   type="text/javascript">
          .Name("inputAutoComplete") //The name of the AutoComplete is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
          .DataTextField("ParkName") //Specify which property of the Product to be used by the AutoComplete.
          .DataSource(source =>
              source.Read(read =>
                  read.Action("Index", "Overview"); //Set the Action and Controller names.
              .ServerFiltering(true); //If true, the DataSource will not filter the data on the client.


    i dont know whats wrong with my controller which i cant reach to view on page load,and even if i use Actionresult to reach view,i get javascript error on the part razor command

    Hi Morteza,

    Attached you will find a small MVC sample, which implements an AutoComplete widget initialized with an HTML helper and based on the snippets sent. Here are the most important points on that:

    - HTML helper initialization (@(Html.Kendo().AutoComplete()...) should be outside of the <script> tag;

    - When using HTML helper, you should not place on the page an <input> element with the same ID;

    - I have renamed the endpoint on the server to "Read". An Index action may return a view instead;

    I hope that this helps. If you have any further questions on the Kendo HTML helpers, please do not hesitate to contact us.
