I do not know what the problem is, that I can't connect to my Webservice. It says error 404. As far as I can tell it should work. Since I removed the Code from the *.cshtml in to a seperate .js file its not working anymore.

The Javascript file is in a subfolder "Scripts/Reps/report.ui.js"

I'd like to call the method GetReport from The HomeController.cs with the standard configuration.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong, or if I totally missunderstood that part? Thank you for helping me

$("#createReport").click(function () {
    var postdata = JSON.stringify(
            "EvaluatedPrice": $("#estimatedPriceValue").text(),
            "Address": $("#address").text(),
            "SomeValue": "Som RandomValue To test"

    try {
            type: 'POST',
            url: '@Url.Action("GetReport", "Home")',
            data: postdata,
            dataType: "json",
            success: getSuccess,
            error: getFail
    catch (e) {

function getSuccess(data, textStatus, jqXHR) {

function getFail(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
public class HomeController : Controller
        public async Task<ActionResult> GetReport(HttpContext context)
            string jsonString = string.Empty;

            var data = context;

            return Json(new { data = 12 });

@Url.Action("GetReport", "Home") it will not work in a *.js file. razor syntax only works in *.cshtml file. yout need to store that url in a variable.
