Error with SfDataGrid


I got the following exception with the Syncfusion SfDataGrid: "The API 'System.String.get_FirstChar()' cannot be used on the current platform. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=248273 for more information."

I use the Datagrid for a Universal App.

It seems that the Problem Comes from the ItemsSource. I bind a "Dictionary<string, [Object]>" to the ItemsSource. If the Dictionary has no Items, the Exception occurs.
