    Hi Akeem. I would probobly prefer to return a ViewModel as JsonResult to my view. Looking your above ActionResult, it looks like you are returning the complete dynamic model to the view. It´s probobly better to return a viewmodel with the properties that you want to use in the front end.

    Se my response to this question for a working ajax example: https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/75559-pulling-child-node-content-via-ajax-or-some-other-method

    Hi Akeem,

    Can you post the entire code of your controller ? If it's a surface controller and the name is SmartSurfaceController then the url should be :

    /umbraco/SmartSurface/LoadEvent

    Have a look at the documentation of Surface controllers and especially the part about routing :

    https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Routing/surface-controllers
