    Hello, after trying to follow the examples for adding a toolbar in the grid and AS soon as I add in the toolbar I get the error in the title. 

    here's the aspx code: 
    <%: Html.Kendo().Grid<TSAEMSV3.Models.AirportTrainingViewManagementModel>()
        .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(x => x.Record).Width(65);
                columns.Bound(x => x.Code).Width(65);
                columns.Bound(x => x.PeopleTrained).Width(100);
                columns.Bound(x => x.TrainingTypes).Width(100);
                columns.Bound(x => x.Trainer).Width(100);
                columns.Bound(x => x.TrainingDate).Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}").Width(100);
        .ToolBar(toolbar =>
                toolbar.Template(() =>
                { %>
                   <div class="toolbar">
                            <label class="category-label" for="category">Show products by category:</label>
        .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:500px;" })
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Read(read => read.Action("RetrieveTrainingManagementGrid", "AirportTraining"))
    I have tried using the .Render() as well at the end of the control but no success.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Matthew,

    I tried to reproduce the problem locally using the toolbar template from your post – everything is working as expected and no errors were produced. Could you please provide runnable project where the issue is reproduced? This would help us pinpoint the exact reason for this behavior.

    On a side note I would recommend checking the following blog post:
