I am fairly new to MVC
I have tried all day to use the MVVM Remote Binding example to update the model using form post instead of json to post to a controller action and it won't map the post data to the IEnumerable<ProductViewModel> products argument of my controller action. I have inspected the post parameters and this is what I see:

models[0][Discontinued] false
models[0][ProductID] 3
models[0][ProductName] Aniseed Syrup
models[0][UnitPrice] 12
models[0][UnitsInStock] 13
models[0][UnitsOnOrder] 0

In the working example for Kendo Grid Editing Custom, I noticed that the post parameters should be more like this:

models[0].Discontinued false
models[0].ProductID 3
models[0].ProductName
Aniseed Syrup
models[0].UnitPrice 12
models[0].UnitsInStock 13
models[0].UnitsOnOrder 0

Notice how the properties are not indexed. I am guessing that this is why it doesn't work.

Does anyone have a working example (with controller source) of Kendo MVVM being used to update the model?

I figured it out. After several hours of stepping through the javascript on my project and then finally on the kendoui example project with full js source code, I found that I really needed to have the kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js file included in my page. It apparently adds a parametermapping function to the datasource that doesn't exist without that script. Now everything is working fine.
