    Hello, I'm new with MVC & Kendo and follow some demo videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CPediqnIt8) and tried "do-it yourself".

    The Controller:

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Data.Entity;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Mvc;

    namespace KendoUIMvcApplication3.Controllers
        public class FoldersController : Controller
            private FotosACSEntities db = new FotosACSEntities();

            // GET: /Folders/

            public ActionResult Index()
                var folders = db.Folders.Select(f => new
                    ID = f.ID,
                    Nome = f.Nome

                return Json(folders, "text/html", System.Text.Encoding.UTF8, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet); 

    The View:

    @model IEnumerable<KendoUIMvcApplication3.Folders>

        ViewBag.Title = "Index";

    <br />

    @Html.Kendo().DropDownList().Name("cbFolders").DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.Read(read => read
                .Action("Index", "Folders"))).DataTextField("Nome").DataValueField("ID");


    And the Result: (IE and Chrome)

    [{"ID":1,"Nome":"\\CD 06_Fotos Pessoais"},{"ID":2,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 002\\JPG"},{"ID":3,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 003\\JPG"},{"ID":4,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 004\\JPG"},{"ID":5,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 007\\JPG"},{"ID":6,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 008\\JPG"},{"ID":7,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 009\\JPG"},{"ID":8,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 010\\JPG"},{"ID":9,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 011\\JPG"},{"ID":10,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 013\\JPG"},{"ID":11,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 014\\JPG"},{"ID":12,"Nome":"\\Fotos Pessoais\\Album 017\\JPG"},{"ID":13,"Nome":"\\Fotos PM\\Album 001"},{"ID":14,"Nome":"\\Fotos PM\\Album 002"},...

    What's happening?

    Hello Rui,

    You should return a ViewResult and not a JsonResult from the action that renders the View. A separate action method should be used to return JSON for the Ajax request. If you wish to return the data from the Index action then you should still return a ViewResult and bind the data to the DropDownList with the BindTo method. Check this documentation topic which describes both scenarios.
