Has anyone ever experienced the following error:

'uid' is undefined
kendo.all.min.js, line 8 character 217810


I get this when browsing the site with IE8 and the latest FireFox.  Everything works fine when using Chrome.

I'm using jquery.iecors for IE8 support and have set the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to * on the Web API site that serves up the JSON data.  The Web API JSON call is successful and is returning valid JSON data for all browsers.

I'm not too sure where to go from here, any suggestions are welcome.

Still can't figure this one out.

Has anyone else had issues like this between browsers?

I've narrowed down the issue.

Using EF5, MVC4 and Web API using the vanilla JSONFormatter.  JSON coming from the web api works under Chrome, but not FireFox or IE.

When I browse to the Web API URL through a web browser, copy and paste the JSON data into a javascript variable and assign that variable to the data property of a grid, it then works in FireFox/IE.

Any ideas?

I have the exact same issue, and I've repro'd it exactly.  I get the same error in IE 10.0; Chrome processes it successfully.



The only difference in my case is that I'm not using WebAPI; I'm using a standard controller approach as shown in the examples sample code for the MVC wrapper.



I'm also using MVC4. .Net 4 and EF5.

I have the same issue. In Firefox the error is "ReferenceError: uid is not defined" but it works fine in Chrome. Doesn't work in IE9 either.

Using MVC 4 web api, EF, etc.

Any updates?

In your datasource, set the dataType to JSON:

dataType: 'JSON'

ive tried:

dataType: "JSON"

dataType: "json"

type: "JSON"

type: "json"

No avail. If I copy the JSON data the comes out of the web service and then set it to a local datasource it works.

Were you able to get yours working?
