When I call the Create method of kendo grid its giving an exception - ''"An item with the same key has already been added". I checked that their is no any duplicate property name in the model, Only one grid on the page. Not sure what causing this error. Appreciate your help in advance.

Inner Exception :

Hi Vishal,

Thank you for the provided details.

As this one is a copy of your other ticket in the private system(#1504304), I will paste my response here. I recommend moving the discussion here, so the resolving of the issue will be available for the whole community. The other thread will be closed now.

In order to continue the investigation:

The fastest route to getting you up and running is if you could provide a runnable, isolated, sample project. Examining this project will let us replicate the issue locally and further troubleshoot it.

In order to help you create the reproducible, I have gone ahead and created a starter project for you. It already has all the dependencies and a view/controller with a Grid.

Please take the following steps:

1. Download, unblock and extract the attached solution
2. Open it in  VS2019 and update the following files with your problematic code
2.1 Controllers/GridController.cs
2.2 Views/Home/Index.cshtml
3. Run the project and confirm that it reproduces the problem at runtime
4. Close VS2019, then open the project in File Explorer and delete the bin and obj folders
5. Zip up the solution and attach it to your next reply.

Send me a runnable sample of your project or use the attached sample.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

 

Kind Regards,
Anton Mironov
