I'm new at this, so bear with me.

I have a Grid with a toolbar that has a Save() command defined.  I also want to define an Approve command, which does backend processing in a similar manner as Save but with a different stored procedure.

Save works fine by simply having toolbar.Save() to create the button, and then datasource.Update("UpdateData", "Controller") to define the backend call.

For Approve, I have tried to do toolbar.Custom().Text("Approve").Action("Approve", "Controller").  This calls the backend Approve method just fine.  But it also redirects the page to a /Approve page, which I don't want.  I want it to function like Save() does with my Ajax() datasource, and not redirect the browser anywhere.

Is this possible?

Nevermind, figured it out.  Didn't realize this was more an MVC and jQuery thing than a Kendo thing.

I created a JavaScript function called callApprove(), which does a $.ajax() to the URL which would call my Approve() method (according to MVC default routing rules).  Then my custom toolbar thing looked like: toolbar.Custom().Text("Approve").Url("#").HtmlAttributes(new { onclick = "callApprove()" });

That did everything it was supposed to.
