MultiColumnDropDown: how to retrieve selected row?

I'm quite new to SyncFusion Framework for ASP .NET MVC.

I would like to know how to manage MultiColumnDropDown. Here is my pb:

I have a form with 5 MultiColumnDropDown Inside. Each MultiColumnDropDown is binded to a IEnumerable<MyBusinessObject>. For example, I have de BusinessObject with Id (Guid), FirstName (String), LastName (String).

In the dropdown, I show only First and LastName.

The user select an item in the MultiColumnDropDown then click on the submit button.

But on Server side, I can retrieve only the Fisrt/LastName of the selected item. How can I retrieve the Id?

(I'm quite sure i don't use it in the correct way ;-))

Hi Clark,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion forums.


We suggest you to use “ClientSideOnSelect” event to retrace the selected row details from MultiColumnDropDown control. Please refer the below code snippet to achieve this,



@(Html.Syncfusion().MultiColumnDropDown<MultiDDC.Models.Student>("Multicolumndropdown", "dropdown", columns =>


    columns.Add(c => c.UniversityCode).HeaderText("Univ Code").Width(100);

    columns.Add(c => c.Title).HeaderText("Title").Width(100);

    columns.Add(c => c.CourseFees).HeaderText("Course fees").Width(100);

    columns.Add(c => c.CGPA).HeaderText("CGPA").Width(100);



function ClientSideOnSelect(sender, args) {

        var selectedRow = args._SelectedRow; //retrieved the row details and pass it to the controller during post





Kindly let us know if it helps.
