Angular error - Unable to get property 'tmpl.$newscope' of undefined or null reference

I am getting this error quite frequently since upgrading to latest version, but can't see why it is happening. Any thoughts?

Hi Rob,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your query. We need more information to recreate the sample to find the exact defect. So could you please provide us the following details?

1.       In your query you mentioned that you are using the version We would suspect that it would be version if it is not the version we have mentioned, then please tell us the exact version since we don’t have version.
2.       Could you please tell us in which scenario you are facing this error message i.e. the replication procedure?
3.       If possible could you please share your sample or code snippet to recreate the sample to identify the cause for the error.

1. Yes, sorry it is

2. Our scenario is using AngularJS with MVC. As I can't find exactly where this error is thrown I believe the scenario is using an ng-repeat and inside the ng-repeat there are syncfusion controls, such as a dropdown and treeview. These controls are therefore created dynamically with the data from the repeat. The error occurs (I think) when we delete from the ng-repeat (ie remove an item from the collection). All we doing with the collection is using the splice method on the array to remove that item that is no longer needed. After that occurs we get the "Unable to get property 'tmpl.$newscope' of undefined or null reference" error in the console.

3. Our code is very complicated to send a sample

Cheers ... Rob.
