The drop down in view is as follows;

    <label>Page Size</label>
    @Html.DropDownList("pageSizes", HRMS.Areas.EIM.Controllers.RouteController.PageSizeSelectList(), new { onchange = "onPageSizeChange()" }) rows per page    


capture the change event value as follows;

    $(function onPageSizeChange() {
        $('#pageSizes').change(function () {
            var selectedValue = $(this).val();
            $.post("/Route/SaveEntry", selectedValue); 

How to pass this selected value to controller??Please help me.

If this Helps:

$(function() {    
$("#submit").click(function () 
	$.ajax	({             
		url: this.href,            
 		type: 'POST',             
		data: { input: $('#dropdown').val() },
                success: function (result) {   alert(;   },       
		error: function () { alert("error");    }        
   	return false;     
public ActionResult submit(string input) 
	var result = _db.Ingredients.Where(i => i.IngredientName == input); 
  	return Json(new { name = "Hello There" });
