    There has to be a setup issue somewhere.  I copied and pasted the Kendo dropdown example.

    However the dropdown never calls my method in my controller.  It renders on my page(empty).

    What am I missing?





                    .DataSource(s => {

                        s.Read(read =>


                            read.Action("GetCustomerList", "MyController");














            public static void RegisterBundles(BundleCollection bundles)



                bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/jquery").Include("~/Scripts/jquery-{version}.js"));



                bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/bundles/css").Include("~/Content/*.css"));


                bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/kendo").Include(


                    // "~/Scripts/kendo/kendo.timezones.min.js", // uncomment if using the Scheduler



                bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/Content/kendo/css").Include(

    Hi Jim,

    Please ensure that the name of the Controller specified in the Read action is correct. Also, check out the following article for a detailed walkthrough on how you can bind the DropDownList widget.
