    Here's the scenario...I have a button on my model....essentially a toggle.  However the model STATE should only change if the $.ajax call returns this is what I tried

    viewModel = kendo.observable({
            releaseMe: function (item) {
    function release(item) {
        var releaseState =;
        var campus =;
        var block = viewModel.BlockID;
        var url = "/api/cps/clerkship/blocks/" + block +  "/" + campus + "/";
        if (!releaseState)
            url += "release";
            url += "unrelease";
            url: url,
            type: "PUT",
            data: {
                id: block,
                campus: campus
            success: function (e) {
                if (!releaseState)
                    item.set("Released", true); //WHAT SHOULD THIS BE
                    item.set("Released", false); //WHAT SHOULD THIS BE

    Any idea?  Should it literally just be a simple = true;

     To set a field you should use the set method. If you want to set then use this
    item.set("data.Released", true). This is mentioned in the ObservableObject help topic.
