Duplicate controls for Edit when InlineForm or Dialog

When using grid control for ASP.NET MVC 5 application and adjusting it as in demo provided, controls are duplicated for InlineForm or Dialog EditMode. Actually controls aren't duplicated but there are as many control sets there as records available. It seems as actual selection of record prior to editing has no effect whatsoever.

Here is relevant server side code:

        public ActionResult Edit()
            ViewBag.dataSource = db.Parties.ToArray();
            return View();

        public ActionResult InlineUpdate(Party value)
            Party result = db.Parties.Where(o => o.Id == value.Id).FirstOrDefault();
            return Json(db.Parties.ToArray(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

        public ActionResult InlineInsert(Party value)
            return Json(db.Parties.ToArray(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

        public ActionResult InlineDelete(int key)
            Party result = db.Parties.Where(o => o.Id == value.Id).FirstOrDefault();
            return Json(db.Parties.ToArray(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

On a client side view is as follows:

@using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models
ViewBag.Title = "Parties";
<div id="ControlRegion">
.Datasource(ds => ds.Json((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.dataSource).UpdateURL("InlineUpdate").InsertURL("InlineInsert").RemoveURL("InlineDelete").Adaptor(AdaptorType.RemoteSaveAdaptor))
.EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding().AllowDeleting().AllowEditing().EditMode(EditMode.InlineForm); })
.ToolbarSettings(toolbar =>
toolbar.ShowToolbar().ToolbarItems(items =>
.Columns(col =>

Finally, result with either inline form or dialog is that there is sets as many as records there:

As the message implies, it seems that record selection isn't properly reflected in javascript code. Version used is and Sample Creator is used to devise solution.
Browser is Chrome 58.

Here is finally excerpt from final page source heading (if review of actual content/js is of some help):

    <link rel='nofollow' href="/Content/site.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <link rel='nofollow' href="/Content/ej/web/Flat-Lime/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

This was fun. Only after 2 days struggling with it and after posting question here, found that it it necessary to have PrimaryKey column included on view. It must not be visible but after putting it there everything started to work just as usual.
