How To Insert Data Into Kendo Grid MVC From Input Control



In this blog you will learn how to insert data from input controls into Kendo Grid MVC

Step 1

Create a new project in VS 2015 using Kendo UI ASP.NET MVC 5 Application

Step 2

You will get folder structure and Kendo UI reference into _Layout.cshtml. Now create a new controller. For Action method Index, add new view.

Now create a View Model as to get set data from input controls,

public class EmployeeViewModel  
        public string Name { get; set; }  
        public string Address { get; set; }  

Step 3

Add the below code to Index.cshtml,

@using Kendo.Mvc.UI  
@using Kendo.Mvc.Extensions  
@model KendoUIApp3.ViewModel.EmployeeViewModel  
    ViewBag.Title = "Index";  
    Layout = "~/Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml";  
<div class="row">  
    <div class="col-md-12">  
        <div class="input-group">  
           @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Name)  
            @Html.EditorFor(model => model.Name)  
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Address)  
            @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Address)  
    <br />  
    <div class="col-md-6">  
        <div class="input-group">  
            <input type="button" value="submit" id="btnAddToGrid">  
<br />  
        .Columns(columns =>  
            columns.Bound(c => c.Name).Width(20);  
            columns.Bound(c => c.Address).Width(20);  
        .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height: 350px;width: 500px;" })  
        .Pageable(pageable => pageable  
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource  
    $("#btnAddToGrid").click(function () {  
        var name = $('#Name').val();  
        var add = $('#Address').val();  
        if (name == "" || add == "") {  
            alert("Please fill all input fields");  
        var grid = $("#MyKendoGrid").data("kendoGrid");  
        var datasource = grid.dataSource;  
        datasource.insert({ Name: name, Address: add });
