Possible Bug with ForeignKeyColumn

Thread ID:

Hi there,

Something I have noticed recently is that there is a possible bug with ForeighKeyColumn in Grid setup. I have been using the sample solution http://mvc.syncfusion.com/demos/web/grid/foreignkeycolumn till now without any issues as usually my view models have ID of type int.
In new project when I tried to have View Models with ID of type string (guid) there is a weird behavior I have noticed. If the guid values start with numberals e.g 235ab2x...... then in the method with signature BatchUpdate(List changed, List added, List deleted), all the ForiegnKey properties of objects within the newly added list is set to "235" string. I have tested this multiple times and suspect it could be a bug.

Let me know otherwise

I am usingSyncfusion.EJ.Mvc, Version=13.3500.0.18 andSyncfusion.EJ, Version=13.3450.0.18

I have spent hours trying to figure out why this is happening with the solution I am working on but bit stumped at the moment.
