    I'm not sure what is going on. I'm doing an MVC4 app with VS2012. My ready function defines a new datasource, then a grid. When I run the app in Chrome, it works fine. When I run my app in IE9, it throws an error on the code that defines the datasource with "kendo is undefined".

    Here is my code:

    //define the dataSource for the grid
    searchVM.dataSource = new{
        schema: {
            model: {
                fields: {
                    Number: { type: "string" },
                    DateReceived: { type: "date" },
                    County: { type: "string" },
                    Media: { type: "string" }
        pageSize: 10,
        change: function (e) {
            //refresh the grid
            var grid = $("#searchResults").data("kendoGrid");

    Why does it work in Chrome, but throw the error in IE9? Is it some setting in IE that's causing trouble for me?

    I was able to fix the problem by using a local copy of kendo.web.min.js (v 2012.2.710) instead of linking to the CDN (same version).
    Not sure why this worked, but maybe it was an issue of IE not being able to access the CDN.
