I can't get inline editing to work when the item is an EF Core 2.2.6 proxy (lazy loading turned on), it throws an exception right after the OnEdit event. 

When using POCOs, everything works fine.  Not a big issue, but guessing a lot of people might run into this scenario.

Hi Portia,

Are you using the latest versions of the packages? Could you try tomorrow when we ship 2.4.0 that will support .NET Core 3.1 Preview 3?

Also, what is the stack trace of this error? How does it include the Telerik components? Do you have a local collection where the data is stored, and can you confirm that the model fields have both a getter and a setter?

If you can open a support ticket and send me a runnable MVCE that showcases the Telerik problem, that would be very helpful because this is the first report of this kind that we get.

Hi Marco,

Judging from the stack trace, it looks like when the grid tries to clone the provided data source, those items are null or otherwise their properties are not populated. The grid needs to clone the data source in order to perform its internal operations (like paging, sorting, etc.) without polluting your actual data.

Can you confirm that the models bound to the grid are standalone and their creation does not require the involvement of the server/proxy/context? The models the grid binds to need to be something that can be created locally.

Hi there, I can't get what do you mean exactly with "standalone" and "can be created locally"

Hi Marco,

The grid uses reflection to get fields and their values and then does a "new TItem()" call for the items in the data source. The models needs to allow for that. Another report we had used models generated with a third party tool/framework, and those objects could only be created from a factory in that framework, which prevented the grid from instantiating the models it needs to operate. This is the "remote" creation that is not "standalone" that I was referring to. It is possible that something similar is the cause here - for example, creating a new object in the scenario you have may be requiring a trip to the database or some other pre-requisite that the grid could not know about.

Hi Marin, I've simplified my code to get rid of the issue. The grid code/Service is very simple, I exclude the issue could be there:

<TelerikGrid Data=@Attivitas
                 Height="550px"
                 FilterMode="GridFilterMode.FilterMenu"
                 EditMode="@GridEditMode.Incell"
                 Sortable="true"
                 Pageable="true"
                 PageSize="20"
                 Groupable="false">

        <GridColumns>

            <GridColumn Field="Descrizione"
                        Filterable="false"
                        Reorderable="false" />

[...]

public List<Attivita> Attivitas { get; set; }
    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {

        Attivitas = DataService_.GetAttivita<Attivita>();

[...]

public List<JarodBlazor2.Data.Attivita> GetAttivita<Attivita>()
        {
            List<JarodBlazor2.Data.Attivita> list = dc.Attivita.ToList();
            return list;

        }

 

The Model instead is a bit more complex, but I cant' get what's wrong with that, just some virtual functions and a base class:

 

public class Attivita : JarodEntity
    {
        public virtual Commessa Commessa { get; set; }
        public int? CommessaId { get; set; }
        public DateTime Data { get; set; }
        public virtual TipoAttivita Tipo { get; set; }
        public int TipoId { get; set; }
        public int Ore { get; set; }
    }

 

 

public class JarodEntity
    {

        public string Descrizione { get; set; }

        [Key]
        public int ID { get; set; }

        public string Owner { get; set; }

        public virtual List<Type> GetCustomComponents()
        {
            List<Type> lt = new List<Type>();
            return lt;
        }

        public string GetDbSetName()
        {
            return this.GetType().Name;
        }

        public virtual List<string> GetIncludeList()
        {
            return null;
        }
        public virtual TP GetProperty<TP>(String PropertyName)
        {
            return (TP)this.GetType().GetProperty(PropertyName).GetValue(this);
        }

        public override string ToString()
        {
            if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(Descrizione))
                return GetDbSetName();
            return Descrizione;
        }

        public virtual bool Update(JarodEntity je)
        {
            var props = je.GetType().GetProperties();
            bool mod = false;
            foreach (var prop in props)
            {
                var oldValue = prop.GetValue(je);
                var newValue = prop.GetValue(this);
                if (oldValue != newValue)
                {
                    prop.SetValue(je, newValue);
                    mod = true;
                }
            }

            return mod;
        }


    }

Hi Marin, the issue is about lazy loading in EF, with POCO I've not any issue.

 

So I added a dbcontext and enabled lazy loading, the issue comes up as soon as you enable lazy loading in startup.cs at line 34

Hello Marco, Portia,

We were able to reproduce the issue and it is under investigation. You can follow its status in the following page I created on your behalf: https://feedback.telerik.com/blazor/1452386-add-support-for-lazyloadingproxies-in-ef. At this point we suspect it is related to the interfaces EF generates.
