I followed these steps so in my layout manager I have between head tags the followings :


In the HTML webpage I can see both scripts, I tried swithing the order but nothing.

@Html.EJ().DropDownList(nameof(Model.DomainModel.MotherID)).Datasource(@Model.PossibleMothers).DropDownListFields(df => df.Text("Tag").Value("Id"))

Will only show a basic html input

Hi Jonathan, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We suspect that you missed to add the ej.unobtrusive.js file for unobtrusive mode rendering. Please refer to the below code example: 




Refer to the help documentation link: https://help.syncfusion.com/aspnetmvc/unobtrusive

Hello! I found the problem.
By default it seems like in the mvc generated layout view, jquery is referenced at the bottom of the page.

When I moved the jquery script rendering to the top just above the syncfusion unobstrusive and ej.min it started work

Thanks for the reply !!
