    Hello, Mohammed,

    Sending the Kendo UI Grid data to a method in the controller could happen with the help of an ajax request.

    Within the click event handler of a button, access the data of the grid and perform the request:
        .HtmlAttributes( new {type = "button"} )
        .Events(e => e.Click("onClick"))
    The handler below sends the data to GridController's GetGridInfo method in the required format:
    function onClick() {
            var grid = $("#kendogrid").data("kendoGrid");
            var dataSource = grid.dataSource;
            var rows = JSON.stringify({ 'rows': });
                url: "/Grid/GetGridInfo",
                data: rows,
                dataType: "json",
                type: "POST",
                contentType: 'application/json;'

    Here is the method in GridController that will receive the grid's view data:

            public ActionResult GetGridInfo(List<GridRowViewModel> rows)
                //Use rows for the application needs

    I hope you find this helpful.
