    I am attempting to post to an action in the controller from a custom button in the Grid component. At first the Grid would render the form outside of the column, this was fixed by {}.Render() which appears to generate the form in the correct location.

    My problem is that the items being passed to the form are always null, regardles:

    I'll simply my example:

                   .Columns(columns =>
                using (Html.BeginForm("RemindEmployee", "Evaluations", FormMethod.Post))
                    Html.Hidden("employeeID", item.Employee.EmployeeID);
                    Html.Hidden("reviewID", item.ReviewId);
                    Html.Hidden("fullname", item.Employee.Fullname);
                    <input type="submit" name="Remind" value="Remind" class="btn btn-primary btn-k-grid" />
                  }@</text>).Title("Action"); }).Render(); }

    As I mentioned this appears to work fine, and the Controller has:

    public ActionResult RemindEmployee(int? employeeID, int? reviewID, string fullname) { }

    Though the parameters are always passed as null. What's the best way to handle this example here?

    Note: I've already used some javascript $.post() to do the same thing, but I would like to know the proper way to get the above to work with hidden forms for my own benefit.
