My Kendo Comboxbox server binding is not working

This is my View
 @(Html.Kendo().ComboBox()
              .Name("cbxState")
              .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width:150px" })
              .Text("Select State")
     
              .DataTextField("Code")
              .DataValueField("Code")
               .Filter(FilterType.Contains)
              .DataSource(source =>
              {
                  source.Read(read =>
                  {
                      read.Action("cbx_read", "Home");
                  })
                  .ServerFiltering(true);
              })
              )


This is my Controller       

public ActionResult cbx_read([DataSourceRequest]DataSourceRequest request)
         {
             using (var northwind = new Connection())
             {
                 IQueryable<LostDayDetail> Customers = northwind.LostDayDetail;
                 DataSourceResult result = Customers.ToDataSourceResult(request, Customer => new CustomerDetail
                 {
                     Code = Customer.Code,
                     Name = Customer.Name,
                     Days = Customer.Days
                 });
                 return Json(result);
             }
        }

When I click on Combobox, it calls cbx_read function and it gets all 12 rows of data from database table. but when contol comes back to view, the combobox is blank.
Please help me

Hello Sanjeev,

In general, ComboBox widget supports seamless binding to an array of objects/primitive values. The DataSourceResult is not supported out of the box as it is designed to work with widgets with CRUD abilities (Grid and etc). Check this help topic for more information.
