    I am new to the Kendo UI so I really need some help.  I'm sure this is simple for those knowledgable, but I have tried everything.

    I have a kendo combobox on my index.cshtml view.  The combo is filling correctly.  It is bound to a list within my model.

    What I need to do is make it post back to my index controller when a user makes a selection.  I have spent hours reading the forums and other online blogs and cannot seem to find an example like mine using combobox.

    Here is my combobox:

                <div style="padding:5px">
                    .Placeholder("Select a Paystub")


    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Hello Justin,

    To initiate an AJAX call to the controller, when user changes the selection in the ComboBox, you could handle the change event of the widget and initiate your custom ajax call:
    function onItemChange(e) {
            url: '@Url.Action("Post", "Home")',
            type: 'GET',
            dataType: 'json',
            data: { id: e.sender.value() },
            success: function (data) {
                // Your success handler here
                alert("Returned ID: " + data.returnedId);

    Attached you will find a sample project, demonstrating the above implementation.
