Hi Yara,

Thanks for your interest in Orubase product.

You can achieve your requirement by calling action, while clicking the list item using ‘OnItemSelect’ clientside event. Please refer the below code snippets.


function SendPost(sender, args) {
   $.mobile.changePage("/home/ListboxPost/" + args.Text.toLowerCase());


public ActionResult ListboxPost(string id) // Which gets the parent items text
   var data = RenderChildDataSource(id); // Sending new model data for the child item
   return View(data);

We have also created sample for the same. Please refer the sample in the below attachment.


Please try this and let us know if you have queries.
