    We have a page that uses the Kendo Grid along with Kendo DropDownLists. The page has a strongly typed model of type ImportModel.  We are trying to POST the entire page at one time.  We were able to get it working but it only works in IE.  Is there a better way to do this?
    ImportModel looks like the following:
            public string Country { get; set; }                                       //loaded from Kendo DropDownList
            public string Language { get; set; }                                      //loaded from Kendo DropDownList
           public IEnumerable<ImportModel.ImportItem> gridItems { get; set; }        //this is always NULL in Chrome and Firefox once the grid is POSTed
    ImportItem is defined as:
            public class ImportItem
                public bool Enabled { get; set; }
                [Required(ErrorMessage = "Site ID is required")]
                public string SiteId { get; set; }
                [Required(ErrorMessage = "User Name is required")]
                public string UserName { get; set; }
                public string UserPhone { get; set; }
                [Required(ErrorMessage = "User Email is required")]
                public string UserEmail { get; set; }
    The grid:
                            .ToolBar(toolbar =>
                               .Columns(columns =>
                                   columns.Bound(item => item.SiteId).Width(220).Title("Site ID").Encoded(true).ClientTemplate("#= SiteId #" +
                                            "<input type='hidden' name='gridItems[#= index(data) #].SiteId' value='#= SiteId #' />");
                                   columns.Bound(item => item.UserName).Title("User Name").Encoded(true).ClientTemplate("#= UserName #" +
                                            "<input type='hidden' name='gridItems[#= index(data) #].UserName' value='#= UserName #' />");
                                   columns.Bound(item => item.UserPhone).Title("User Phone").Encoded(true).ClientTemplate("#= UserPhone #" +
                                            "<input type='hidden' name='gridItems[#= index(data) #].UserPhone' value='#= UserPhone #' />");
                                   columns.Bound(item => item.UserEmail).Title("User Email").Encoded(true).ClientTemplate("#= UserEmail #" +
                                            "<input type='hidden' name='gridItems[#= index(data) #].UserEmail' value='#= UserEmail #' />");
                                        .Editable(editing => editing.Mode(GridEditMode.InCell))
                                        .Pageable(pager => pager.Refresh(true))
                                        .DataSource(datasource => datasource
                                                    .Read(read => read.Action("GetImportData", "Provisioning"))
                                                    .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.BridgeId))
    Below the grid there are standard Kendo DropDownList controls.
    The form is defined as:
    @using (Html.BeginForm("ProvisioningPost", "Provisioning", FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" }))
    The controller method is defined as:
    public ActionResult ProvisioningPost(string btnSubmit, string btnUploadData, ProvisioningImportModel provisioningImportModel, ProvisioningModel.ImportItem[] gridItems)
    gridItems is always NULL for Chrome and Firefox.  With IE the data is passed in.  What is the best method to POST the entire form to the controller?

    Hello Walter,

    I assume that you are using the approach from this code library. I tried the code library and it is sending the values with Chrome as expected.

    Could you please tell us if you have modified the project somehow? Do you experience the same issue with the project from the code library?

    Kind Regards,

    Kendo UI Complete ASP.NET  Verison :2013.3.1316 
    download the code library  from peter post
    add the datetime field in the model

    -----------------DateTime Filed PostBack value stays 01/01/0001 Issue-------------------

    This approach does not work any more with new kendo contorls library i do'nt know if its works for the previous verions.

    if you have datetime filed in your model


            public string Name { get; set; }
            public int ProductID { get; set; }
            public datetime workDate { get; set; }      <--this will be 01/01/0001  on postback

    when you do this your view

     columns.Bound(item => item.workDate ).Title("Wok Date").Encoded(true).ClientTemplate("#= WorkDate #" +
                                            "<input type='hidden' name='gridItems[#= index(data) #].WorkDate' value='#= WorkDate #' />");

      <input type="submit" value="Save" id="save"/>

    Fails on Postback
    ActionResult Save(Category category)
     cartegory.prodcut[0].mydate =model.workDate;   <---- your mydate will be 01/01/0001 
     cartegory.prodcut[1].mydate =model.workDate;   <---- your mydate will be 01/01/0001 


    please help any one.....

    finally figure out my own

    refrsh the grid before posting will make sure all the values are upto date.

    /refresh Grid before save           
                $("#save").click(function (e) {                

    Thanks telerik for your help

    Hi Craig,

    Could you please elaborate on your scenario? This will help us in investigating the issue and we might be able to eventually provide a workaround.

    I look forward to your reply.
