Hey everyone. I am attempting to use a DropDownListFor, however it always results in a crpytic error.

Here is the code:

<div class="TheClass">
@(Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(a => a.WorkId)
.DataSource(source => {
source.Read(read =>
read.Action("GetWork", "Work");
.HtmlAttributes(new { tabindex = 0 })

During design time, the first line is underlined with a red squiggle mark and it says "(...) "cannot be inferred from the usage".

When I run the code, it blows up with the following error. "CS1593: Delegate 'System.Action' does not take 1 arguments"

What is the problem here?

Hi Dave,

I tried to reproduce this error, but to no avail, and I am not entirely sure what might be causing it. Does it happen only when the WorkId field is used? Do other For helpers fail in the same manner as well? Also, could you please provide a runnable sample project where the issue is reproduced? This would help us pinpoint the exact reason for this behavior and advise you further.
