Hi Nitheesh,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

The ASP.Net MVC Controls will render in two mode, they are
  • Unobtrusive mode
  • Non-unobtrusive mode.

The ASP.Net MVC Controls will render in Unobtrusive mode when setting the “UnobtrusiveJavascriptEnabled” as true in web.config file.

From the information that you have shared, we found out that your application is configured in non-unobtrusive mode. You can check in web.config file if the unobtrusive is enabled in your project as in the code example below.

    <add key="UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled" value="true" />

For non-unobtrusive configured project, it is essential to define the script manager in the project in order to render the controls properly.

[In _Layout.html]



    @RenderSection("scripts", required: false)


If your project is configured to Unobtrusive mode, then please refer to the below online documentation for more information.

Hi Ragavee,

Good day!!!!

I have added <add key="UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled" value="true" />  in my appSettings, but it's not displaying any thing in my view.

And also I have tried javascript, that was working fine.

When i add
it's only showing one text box not date picker like this
<input data-role="ejdatepicker" id="MyFirstDatePicker">
But using javascript it's working fine like this
<script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
and output is
<span class="e-datewidget e-widget" style="width100%;" aria-invalid="false">
    <span class="e-in-wrap e-box e-padding">
        <input type="text" id="datepick" class="e-datepicker e-js e-input" tabindex="0" aria-atomic="true" aria-live="assertive" name="datepick" placeholder="Select date">
        <span id="datepick-img" class="e-select" style="displayblock;">
            <span class="e-icon e-date" aria-label="Select"></span>

And these are the scripts added in my view

<link rel='nofollow' href="~/Modules/Styles/web/default-theme/ej.widgets.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="~/Modules/Scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Modules/Scripts/jsrender.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Modules/Scripts/jquery.globalize.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/ModulesScripts/jquery.easing.1.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Modules/Scripts/ej/ej.web.all.min.js"></script>
And this is my web.config settings

Hi Nitheesh,

Good day to you too!!!

Initially you have set UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled as false, but missed out to define script manager in _Layout.html file as mentioned in our previous update. Whereas, after enabling the UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled option now, you have missed out to refer the ej.unobtrusive.min.js file in your application which is the cause of the issue.

We have explained about the two modes in our earlier update and the necessities for rendering the control in both the modes. So please ensure the provided steps has been followed in your project.

Refer to the below online documentation for creating a MVC project manually.

http://help.syncfusion.com/aspnetmvc/getting-started#mvc-4-application -> Manual Integration of Syncfusion MVC components into new/existing MVC applications

In order to avoid some uncertainties and difficulties in a usual Javascript environment, Unobtrustive Javascript support has been introduced. It is easier for the users to create Syncfusion components with basic level HTML tag-like structure.

When the UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled option is set to true in the web.config file, the control usually renders with the HTML5 data attributes and also the reference to the ej.unobtrusive.min.js file needs to be included in the application.

If you explicitly set this UnobtrusiveJavaScriptEnabled option to false, then the control rendering takes place through scripts, which requires the usage of script manager in your application.

Refer to the Help Document for unobtrusive support.
