Returning the select grid row to controller's post method

Hello, I am using the Grid controls in a ASP.NET MVC 4 application and can figure out how to get the selected row from each grid in my post method on my controller class.  Any help us greatly appreciated.

I have tried using the .ClientSideEvents property for the grid as follows but it does nothing:
.ClientSideEvents(r => r.OnRecordSelectionEvent("ContractorRecordSelection"))

<script type="text/javascript"> 

    function ContractorRecordSelection(sender, args) {
        var selectedRows = sender.selectedRows();
        var a = args.record.Code;

Hi Doug,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Your requirement can be achieved in “OnRecordSelectionEvent”. Please refer to the following steps in the sample:          


Step #1: Add client side event for RecordSelection.



    Html.Syncfusion().Grid<Grid_CS_Razor.Models. Student >('GenericListGrid')

                    . . . .

    .ClientSideEvents(eve => {

        eve.OnRecordSelectionEvent('recordSelect');  // record selection event





function recordSelect(sender, args)

    var record = Sys.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer.serialize(args.record);   // can get selected record values in args.record


        type: 'Post',

        url: 'Home/GetRecords',

                 data: { rec: record },  // send serialized data to controller through ajax post

        dataType: 'html',

        success: function (data) {

            return data;




Step #3:



        public ActionResult GetRecords(string rec)  // retrieve the data here and desterilize it


            Student ord = new JavaScriptSerializer().Deserialize<Student >((string)rec);  // can get selected record values here

            return RedirectToAction('Index');
