Submit (POST) of the entire grid


I'm using the Grid (ASP.NET MVC 5), I'm trying to Post back to my controller the complete values of a Grid.

I need to use the @Ajax.BeginForm helper to submit the form.  I plan on starting with an empty grid (if that matter).

Can you please provide an simple example of doing so?  Just like 2 column, nothing fancy  I'm having a hard time!  (I can provide my code if needed).

Hi Martin,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Query: Ineed touse the @Ajax.BeginForm helper to submit the form. Can you please provide an simple example of doing so?

We suggest you to get the Grid dataSource as serialized string in the submit button click event and pass it to the controller by using hidden input element in the Ajax.BeginForm method to achieve your requirement. Please refer the below code snippet for further details.


@using (Ajax.BeginForm("GetOrders", "Grid", null, FormMethod.Post))





.Columns(col =>






<button type="submit" onclick="complete();">Get DataSource</button>

<input type="hidden" name="dataSource" value="" id="data" />


<script type="text/javascript">

function complete() {

var gridobj = $("#Grid").data("ejGrid");

var val = JSON.stringify(gridobj.model.dataSource); // Serialized the grid dataSource

$("#data").val(val); // Set the dataSource to hidden element




public ActionResult GetOrders(string dataSource)


// Code here for deserializing the dataSource

var deserializedObj = (List<OrdersView>)Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(dataSource, typeof(List<OrdersView>));

return RedirectToAction("GridFeatures");


For your convenience we have created a simple sample and the same can be downloaded from the belwo link.
