    I have a problem configuring the MultiSelect using the taghelpers, while the htmlhelpers give me no problem at all.
    I get no data in the multiselect when using the taghelper, while the htmlhelper does.
    Any ideas ?


                .DataSource(source =>
                  source.Read(read =>
                    read.Action("GetAvailableRoles", "Users");



    <kendo-multiselect name="roleSelect2" datavaluefield="id" datatextfield="roleName">
      <datasource type="DataSourceTagHelperType.Ajax">
          <read url="@Url.Action("GetAvailableRoles", "Users")" />

    Hi Marcel,

    On the following link to our Demos you will find an example of using MultiSelect tag helpers.

    I have prepared a sample project containing MultiSelect with tag helpers. In Views - > Home - > Index.cshtml you will find the following configuration:
    @addTagHelper *, Kendo.Mvc
    <div class="demo-section k-content">   
        <kendo-multiselect name="orders"
                           placeholder="Select addresses..."
                           value="new int[] { 3, 8 }">
            <datasource type="DataSourceTagHelperType.Ajax">
                    <read url="@Url.Action("GetProducts", "Home")" />

    And the respective action in HomeController:
    public ActionResult GetProducts([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request)
    var products = Enumerable.Range(1, 50).Select(i => new ProductVM
    Id = i,
    Name = "Name " + i
    return Json(products.ToDataSourceResult(request));

    May I ask you to modify the project in order to replicate the issue the way it is at your end? This will help us to inspect the problem locally and advise you further.
