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.
