How can we bind autocomplete's selected values to model so I can use those values on the server? The examples I have seen so far only selects the values on client side and diaplay them as tags. I want to populate the values into control using Ajax call, but after items are selelted i want selected values to be passed to model using model binding. How that can be done?

Hello Laksh,

You can use the AutoComplete's value or dataItem methods, depending on whether you want to send the string value only or the entire object. Once you got the value you can send it to the server using an Ajax request and handle it on the server-side as usual.

Well, since we are using Kendo UI for MVC the selected values need to post to the server using MVC binding framework. Ajax method you suggested is not useful here even though it can send the data to server.

Hello Laksh,

I am not sure I understand what the expected behavior is and why the approach I suggested is not viable. Would you please share more details about the scenario?
