Simple Grid

New to syncfusion and having great difficulty in rendering a simple grid, have gone through circular reference issues and such like but now can render the grid but there's no data rendering, 
  public ActionResult Index()

            ViewBag.datasource = db.Users.ToList();
            return View();

@using WMS.Models

    ViewBag.Title = "Index";
    Layout = "~/Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml";

Hi Stephen, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 


Circular Reference issues 

The circular reference error in data is resolved by using the select method. The following error is due to when we have same table, then object cannot be serialized. So, we suggest you to use select method to get the selected data from the table. For the following error please refer this link 

Please find the below code snippet for avoid the circular reference error: 
NORTHWNDEntities ds = new NORTHWNDEntities(); 
IEnumerable DataSource = OrderRepository.GetAllRecords(); 
DataSource = ds.Orders.Include("Customer").ToList(); 
result.result = DataSource.Cast<Order>().Select(x => new 
OrderID = x.OrderID, 
CustomerID = x.CustomerID, 
Freight = x.Freight, 
Customer = new 
CustomerID = x.Customer.CustomerID, 

Data is not rendered 

You have mentioned that data is not rendered on the grid. So, please confirm the following details to find out the root cause of the issue.  

1. Did you face any script error in the console? If yes, share the screenshot and stackrace of an issue. 

2. Ensure that you have referred the following script file in your sample. 



If you enable the unobstrusive in the web.config, we suggest you to refer the ej.unobstrusive.min.js file in your sample. 

3. Code example of a Grid. 

4. Ensure that you have referred set “@Html.EJ().ScriptManager()” in _Layout file. The main reason for referring the ScriptManager in _Layout file is that, it can be referred as common by all the View files present within your application and it should be included in the _Layout.cshtml.  

5. Essential Studio Version details. 

Try the attached sample and still if you face the issue please provide above details it will helpful to provide the better solution.  

Refer to the Help document of Getting started.
