My Kendo grid is not Ajax binding.  My code mimics what is in your examples exactly, so I can't see the problem.
The grid:
@(Html.Kendo().Grid<LedgerEntryViewModel>()
 .Name("grdItems2")
 .DataSource(datasource => datasource
 .Ajax()
 .Read(read => read.Action("GeneralLedgerEntries", "GL").Data("gridBindingData"))
 .PageSize(10)
 )
 .Columns(col =>
 {
col.Bound(c => c.AccountingEventName).Title("Accounting Event").HtmlAttributes(new {style = "white-space:nowrap;width:50%;"});
 })
 .Sortable()
 .Pageable()
 )

I can see in Fiddler that the controller code is returning the correct JSON to the page: 
public ActionResult GetEntries(string accountType, int? categoryID, int? accountID, int? year, int? month,
 [DataSourceRequest]DataSourceRequest request)
 {
var list = new List<LedgerEntryViewModel>();
 
list = _gridHelpers.GetAccountEntriesWithRunningTotal(accountType, accountID.Value);
 
DataSourceResult result = list.ToDataSourceResult(request);
var json = Json(list, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
 return json;
 }

I assume the problem is that the controller Json Action is never getting called?

Your grid is calling this controller action.
.Read(read => read.Action("GeneralLedgerEntries", "GL").Data("gridBindingData"))
But yet your controller action is actually called: GetEntries
public ActionResult GetEntries
Change one of the other to match.

I'm only learning myself so hopefully this helps.

Thanks,

Actually the method name is "GeneralLedgerEntries" in both the controller and the "Read" method call.  I changed it in the controller to obscure our app (but not very well).  So that is not the issue.  But thanks for your post anyway.

Hello,

The code looks correct. Could you check what is the response from the server? It should indicate what is causing the problem. Also, please check if there are any JavaScript errors.
