JavaScript code sample

<script type="text/javascript">
   $(function () {
          var cancellationTypes = [
                     { 'ID''FXD''CancellationType''Fixed' },                                                                          { 'ID''Z''CancellationType''Zero' },                                                                              { 'ID''MRB''CancellationType''MRB' }, 
                     { ID: 'MAF''CancellationType''MAF' }];
       try {

               function (data) {
                   var index;

                   $.each(cancellationTypes, function (key, val) {
                       if (val.ID == "@Model.CancellationTypeID") {
                           index = key;

                       dataTextField: 'CancellationType',
                       dataValueField: 'ID',
                       dataSource: cancellationTypes,
                       index: index                       
       catch (ex) {
           //Log the exception and alert to the end user
           kendoDialogForEndUserAlert("Error", ex, "Error", ["OK"], null);

        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.CancellationType, new { @class = "control-label col-sm-4" })
