I am using JSON To populate the AutoComplete List of the MultiSelect like Below:

Controller
public JsonResult PopList(string name)
{
    var lstNames = db.GetNames.Select(e => new
    {
        name = e.OrgNames                             
    });         
    return Json(orgs, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
}
Razor:

@(Html.Kendo()
 .MultiSelect()
 .Name("nameBox")
 .AutoBind(true)
 .Placeholder("Select names...")
 .DataTextField("name")
     .DataSource(source =>
      {
         source.Read(read =>
         {
            read.Action("PopList", "ListNames");
         })
            .ServerFiltering(true);
       })
 
)
Can I bind the Value to a list that is not in the list I am using for the auto-complete list?

I attached a image.


If the user wanted to type a name and add it, or if the value being bound are not in the list can it be added?  

When saved the items would then appear in the list.

Hello Bertley,

Please don't open multiple tickets about the same issue. This creates confusion, slows down the support.

I already posted an answer in the other support ticket that you opened. 

Kind Regards,

That second post was a accident.  I did not think the first one posted!
