I can not set viewbag.x to datasource property of kendoAutoComplete.

var friends = "@ViewBag.Friends2";
var friends2 = $('<div/>').html(friends).html();


$.each(friends2, function (key, value)
{
$("#pResult").append(key.Name +" " + value.Name);
});

when I try change the datasource viewbag to other ,it worked.

Hi Elif!

It depends really on what the format of your data in the ViewBag is.  You need to convert it to a JavaScript array for the grid.  Razor is really good at this.  If you are returning a list of friends from your controller like this...
public ActionResult Index()
 {
   ViewBag.Friends = new List<string>() {
     "Burke",
     "Brandon",
     "Todd",
     "Derick",
     "Elif"
  };
  return View();
}
You then need to encode it as JSON so that it's readable in JavaScript.  Othewise Razor will just insert the type where @ViewBag.Friends is.
$("#auto").kendoAutoComplete({
  dataSource: @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@ViewBag.Friends))
});
Cheers!
