$.ajax posting to Controller - parameter is always null.

Inside the Index.cshtml page, I have a call to javascript called "runOptions".

There is a simple $.ajax post to a ActionResult procedure with one parameter. The parameter is always null. I've asked for help in other forums but it is still null.

This should be simple, but I'm stuck and need someone help. Thanks!

Inside the Index.cshtml page:

        $.ajax({
            type: 'POST', 
            url: '@Url.Action("ClientOptionsFilter", "Tabular")',
            data: kendo.stringify({ name: "Marty" }), 
            dataType: 'json',
            success: function(response) {
                alert('success!');
            },
            error: function() {
                alert('errr');
            }
        });

Open in new window



The code inside the controller looks like this. When in debug, the parameter is always null.


        [AcceptVerbs(HttpVerbs.Post)]
        public ActionResult ClientOptionsFilter(string materialJson)
        {
            //if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(materialJson))
            if (materialJson==null)
            {
                return Json(new { msg = "The parameter materialJson is empty or null." });
            }

            return Json(new { msg = "YEAH!" });
        }

Open in new window


Also, when I look in Fiddler, I see the json object passed to the

I'm new to Ajax and I wasn't aware the name / materialJson was the parameter name. I thought the name:value was sent to the procedure as a unit, that the position of the parameter sent to the action was how it determined its placement.

thanks for the speedy reply.
