    I have a custom MVC Widget contained in an external class assembly that returns a 404 error when a button click calls an ajax post function calling a method in the controller.

    The initial call to Index works, I have no custom routing set up.

    The button click calls a javascript function: 

         function saveRequest() {

            //create object
            var obj = {
                FirstName: $("#firstname").val()
                ,LastName: $("#lastname").val()
                , Email: $("#email").val()
                , UserName: $("#email").val()
                , Password: $("#password").val()
                , IsApproved: false

            //pass it to controller
                type: "POST",
                dataType: "json",
                contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                url: "accountrequestwidget/saverequest",
                data: JSON.stringify({ request: obj }),
                success: function (response) {
                error: function (response) {
            }).done(function () {

    And that calls this controller method:

            public virtual JsonResult SaveRequest(AccountRequestWidgetModel request)
                 return Json(new { status = "success", msg = "Request Successfully Sent" });

    In the browser- I can directly type in the /page-name/method (localhost/sitefinitywebapp/account-request/saverequest) and get the method to run-  but putting that into the ajax url (e.g. page name/method)  still returns a 404.

     How do I make Ajax calls to the custom widget's controller methods?

     Thank you!
