    Dear KendoUI Community,

    I'am working on a WebApplication, based upon Backbone.js, Rails3 as JSON API and want now include KendoUI.

    If I visit the Show-View for a selected Object (, my browser performs 2 JSON-Requests to the Server and I have an JS-Error: (Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'getAttribute' of undefined)
    When I disable KendoUI again, everything is fine: (no JS error and 1 JSON-Request)

    I believe that Backbone an KendoUI performs both an request to the server, unfortunately is KendoUI not able to parse my JSON response, which results into a JS-Error and a blank Layout

    My Solution would be to disable de router-module of KendoUI and keep the work on Backbone.js. Do you agree with me?
    I also tried to include your kendo.backbone.js example on github, but it doesn't changed anything.

    You can also see a preview with this error on

    Best regards
