    I cant seem to figure out how to get the value from a hidden column in a kendo grid so that I can then pass it to a call  that will return a partial view.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is the code for my grid.

                      .CellAction(cell =>

                          if (cell.Column.Title.Equals("   "))
                              switch (cell.DataItem.LEO_Availability)
                                  case 0:
                                      cell.HtmlAttributes["class"] = "dataFreeBtn";
                                  case 1:
                                      cell.HtmlAttributes["class"] = "dataAssignedBtn";
                                  case 2:
                                      cell.HtmlAttributes["class"] = "dataNondutyBtn";
                      .Columns(columns =>
                          columns.Bound(r => r.LEO_OfficerID).Hidden(true);
                          columns.Bound(r => r.LEO_Availability).Title("   ").Width(25);
                          columns.Bound(r => r.FullName).Title("Officer");
                          columns.Bound(r => r.LEO_CallSign).Title("Call Sign");
                          columns.Bound(r => r.LEO_PostName).Title("Post");

                    .LoadContentFrom("GetToolTipData", "DailyLog")
                    .Events(events => events.RequestStart("requestStart"))
                <script type="text/javascript">
                    function requestStart(e) {
                        var id ="tr").find("td:eq(0)").text();

    Hello Jeffrey,

    You should use to the the DOM element which the user has hovered (which corresponds to the grid table row). Then pass the text to your partial view via Here is some sample code:

        function requestStart(e) {
            var id ="td:eq(0)").text();
   = {
                id: id
