    I am wanting to pass only the rows where the checkbox is checked to my controller but I can not seem to figure this out.  I don't want to use selected but checked boxes.

    Scenario: user is presented with a list of products, some of which are pre-checked.  they will then select more products by checking the checkboxes.  I want to send all those rows to the controller, and also have it work with paging.  Is there a way to change the following from using "selected" to use the checked?


    // gather the selected rows and send them to the controller
      $(function () {
          $('#btnGenerate').click(function () {
              var grid = $('#products').data('kendoGrid');
              var selectedElements =;
              for (var j = 0; j < selectedElements.length; j++) {
                  var item = grid.dataItem(selectedElements[j]);
                  items['products[' + j + '].ItemDescription'] = item.ItemDescription;
                  items['products[' + j + '].Quantity'] = item.Quantity;
                  type: "POST",
                  data: items,
                  url: '@Url.Action("ProductsCart","Trial")',
                  success: function () {
                      window.location.href = "@Url.Action("ProductsCart", "Trial")";
                  error: function () {
                      alert("No products were selected.");

    // POST: Add Trial Products to cart
    public ActionResult ProductsCart(TrialProductViewModel[] products)
       // do something with products
        return Json(products);

    Hello Bill,

    In order to implement the behavior you can iterate through the items in the grid and add the ones where the checkbox is checked. Then you can pass the collection to the server as you are currently doing.
