    Any time I try to do an update with InCell editing I get a javascript error as soon as I click out of the cell button.

     

    function anonymous(d) {
    return d.x.Col2 // 0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'Col2' of undefined or null reference
    }

    The d value seems to have my object (CP_FailureStrategyMatrixRow) in it just fine, i.e. it has a attribute called "Col2" that has a valid value in it. I feel everything would work just fine if it was doing "d.Col2", instead of looking in some inner value called x. But I have no idea where this "x" is coming from.

     

    It never even gets to the server-side code:

    I have tried it with both versions of the CRUD operations, as the examples on telerik seem to use both, but it doesn't seem to matter which update statement I use.

            //columns.Bound(p => p.ProbabilityOfFailureValue).Width(100);

            {
                commands.Destroy(); // The "destroy" command removes data items
            }).Title("Commands").Width(200);

    Well I found out, sorta, why this is happening...

     

    I have my main View "Summary.cshtml" that contains some code. Notice the "m => x". If I change it to "m => y", the javascript error references y instead of x, so this is certainly the cause of the issue.

    @foreach (var x in Model.GridModels)
    {
       <!-- MyDashboardMaint and MyReports are handled differently -->
        if (x.GridType == "AssetMgmtStrategy")
        {
            <div class="grid-placeholder-@x.GridType">
                <!-- See GridModel.cshtml in DisplayTemplates -->
                @Html.DisplayFor(m => x, new ViewDataDictionary(this.ViewData) { { "ShowOpen", true } })
            </div>
        }
    }

     

    which then calls a partial view (GridModel.cshtml)

     

    @model eRPortalDashboard.Models.GridModel
    @{
     
        if (Model.GridDatasource != null)
        {
     
            <div class="panel-group">
                <div class="panel panel-primary">
                    <div class="panel-heading clearfix" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="@("#content-Grid" + @Model.ID)">
                        @Html.Partial("_GridTitleBar", Model)
                    </div>
                    @* if ShopOpen is true then we add a class 'in' that will show the collapsable panel by default *@
                    <div id="@("content-Grid" + @Model.ID)" class=@("panel-collapse collapse" + (Convert.ToBoolean(ViewData["ShowOpen"]) == true ? " in" : ""))>
                        <div class="panel-body">
     
                            @if (Model.GridDatasource.GetType() == typeof(List<eRPortalDashboard.Models.CP_FailureStrategyMatrixRow>))
                            {
                                @Html.Partial("ManagementStratsGridModel")
                            }
                            
                        </div>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        }
    }

     

    Which then finally calls my partial view that contains the Kendo grid. If I call my partial View (ManagementStratsGridModel.cshtml), directly from Summary.cshtml:

    @Html.Partial("ManagementStratsGridModel", new ViewDataDictionary(this.ViewData) { { "ShowOpen", true } });

    instead of 

    @Html.DisplayFor(m => x, new ViewDataDictionary(this.ViewData) { { "ShowOpen", true } });

    then I get no error at all. Why is this happening? Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug with Kendo?

    I have attached a compilable project that replicates the issue. It is simply a telerik example that I modified. Please see Index.cshtml for turning the issue on or off.

     

    Can someone from Telerik please look at this?

     

    To make the file under 2MB, I deleted the contents of the following folders:

    \batch-editing\lib\KENDOUIMVC\2014.3.1119.440

    \batch-editing\packages

    \batch-editing\KendoGridBatchEditing\bin

    Hello Alex,

    The behavior you are experiencing is due to the way ASP.NET MVC generates nested Editor templates. The framework is adding a prefix to the names of the input elements on every level of nesting. This however will prevent the Grid's edit form to correctly bind to the fields of the edited model as it will use the name of the input to automatically generate the MVVM binding. In order to address this you should remove the html prefix inside the Grid's editor template. Similar to the following:

    @{ViewData.TemplateInfo.HtmlFieldPrefix = "";}
     
    @(Html.Kendo().Grid<KendoGridBatchEditing.Models.ProductViewModel>()
          .Name("grid")
          /*..*/
    )

    Will this be addressed in some way in the future? e.g. throwing some sort of error, or warning message, or some other way to determine what needs to be done to fix this issue?

    Am I doing something that out of the ordinary where people almost never run into this? If so, could you point me in the direction of why what I'm doing is "wrong"?

    Hello Alex,

    This is not something which can be addressed in the Grid itself. As I have mentioned this is how the ASP.NET MVC will generate the Editor Template input names, and it is not possible to automatically account for this behavior from withing the Grid.
    As the automatic binding generation expects the name of the elements and fields to match, if you need to still have the names prefixed, it will be required to use a custom editor template where manually to apply the appropriate MVVM bindings in order to bind the form to the model instance.
