TagHelper syntax for local datasource with List<Object> in ViewBag.

     I'm trying to get a Grid working with a List<MyObject> contained in ViewBag.txns.

What is the Razor syntax for a local datasource like this, using TagHelpers? I've tried below but it doesn't work:

        <ej-grid id="FlatGrid" datasource="ViewBag.txns">
                <e-column field="TransactionDate" header-text="Date" text-align="Left" width="70" format="{0:MM/dd/yyyy}"></e-column>
                <e-column field="Reference1" header-text="Reference" width="80"></e-column>
                <e-column field="Balance" header-text="Balance" text-align="Right" width="75"></e-column>

Hi Alan,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.  
We are unable to reproduce any problem with the given code snippet. The format given in your code example for binding datasource to the Grid is correct and we are not finding any error with this code example.  
<ej-grid id="FlatGrid" allow-sorting="true" datasource="ViewBag.parent" allow-paging="true"> 
        <e-column field="EmployeeID" header-text="Employee ID"  width="75"></e-column> 
        <e-column field="FirstName" header-text="First Name" width="80"></e-column> 
        <e-column field="LastName" header-text="Last Name" visible="false" width="75"></e-column> 
We have prepared a sample that can be downloaded from the following location. 
Please share the following details to analyze the problem at our end.  
1)      Code example of the code behind 
2)      Screenshot for the issue 
3)      Version of the Essential Studio 
4)      If possible, modify the attached sample and reproduce the issue

Thanks the sample works fine, the problem was something else in the end. FWIW ViewBag.whatever without quotes also works.
