    below is the code on the documentation page for server filtering a dropdownlist

    Does this actually do anything ? 


    namespace Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Controllers
        using System.Web.Mvc;
        public partial class DropDownListController : Controller
            public ActionResult ServerFiltering()
                return View();

    Hello Mark,

    Indeed the mvc code, does not shows the proper implementation of the demo - this will be fixed. However, you can revise the proper controller and method in your offline demos(GetProducts action in Home controller). The actual logic, in the controller is as follows:

    public JsonResult GetProducts(string text)
                var northwind = new SampleEntities();
                var products = northwind.Products.Select(product => new ProductViewModel
                    ProductID = product.ProductID,
                    ProductName = product.ProductName,
                    UnitPrice = product.UnitPrice ?? 0,
                    UnitsInStock = product.UnitsInStock ?? 0,
                    UnitsOnOrder = product.UnitsOnOrder ?? 0,
                    Discontinued = product.Discontinued
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(text))
                    products = products.Where(p => p.ProductName.Contains(text));
                return Json(products, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
