How do you determine the selected item and its value in a MultiColumnDropDown from the post method in controller code after the submit button is pressed for example.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

To retrieve the selected value from the MulticolumnDropdown control in corresponding post action, pass the argument in the name of MultiColumnDropdown control id and in the type of “string” to the corresponding post action. Please refer the following code snippet.



@(Html.Syncfusion().MultiColumnDropDown<Student1>("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);




public ActionResult ToolsFeatures(string Multicolumndropdown)


string selectedItemText = Multicolumndropdown;


For your convenience we have prepared a sample to exhibit this behavior and it is available in the following link.


Kindly let us know, if you have any other queries.
