Asked On April 1, 2019 08:52 AM UTC

The code below fires correctly on the grid  ActionFailure but the alert message show "Undefined".


 @Html.EJS().Grid("Grid").DataSource(ds => { ds.Url("/Cargos/UrlDatasource").InsertUrl("/Cargos/Insert").UpdateUrl("/Cargos/Update").RemoveUrl("/Cargos/Delete").Adaptor("UrlAdaptor"); }).ToolbarClick("toolbarClick").ActionComplete("actionComplete").RowSelected("rowSelected").Columns(col =>
        col.Field("basico").HeaderText("Sueldo Básico").Width("40").EditType("numericedit").TextAlign(Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right).Add();
    }).DataBound("dataBound").ActionFailure("actionFailure").AllowPaging(true).EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding(true).AllowEditing(true).AllowDeleting(true).ShowDeleteConfirmDialog(true).Mode(Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.EditMode.Dialog).Template("#dialogtemplate"); }).Toolbar(toolbarItems).Locale("es").Render()


public ActionResult Insert(CargoSet value)
            var obj = db.CargoSet.Where(o => o.codigo == value.codigo).SingleOrDefault();
            if (obj != null) //Check already exisiting
                throw new InvalidOperationException("Cargo ya existe para esa Sede");//Exception thrown if exisiting              

function actionFailure(args) {

 alert(args.error.statusText); //get the exception message

Please help. I'm using EJ2

Hi Luis, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

During AJAX requests simply throwing exception at the server side will not return the formatted error details. Please refer to the below help links to write statuscode and error details at the server side.  

When the error is returned as specified in the above links, you can access them at the actionFailure event properly.

Hi Luis, 
Thanks for your update. 
We have analyzed your query and found that you have not properly extracted the custom message in ActionFailure event. Please refer the following code snippet to achieve your requirement. 
[Client side code] 
@Html.EJS().Grid("Grid").DataSource(ds => ds.Url("/Home/UrlDatasource").Adaptor("UrlAdaptor").InsertUrl("/Home/Insert") 
.RemoveUrl("/Home/Remove").UpdateUrl("Home/Update")).AllowPaging(true).Columns(col => 
    col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).TextAlign(Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right).Width("120").Add(); 
}).Toolbar(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" }).ActionFailure("failure").EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding(true).AllowDeleting(true).AllowEditing(true); }).Render() 
    function failure(args) { 
        var errorMessage = args.error[0].error.responseText.split("Exception:")[1].split('<br>')[0];  //extract the message from args 
[Server side code] 
public ActionResult Insert(Orders value) 
            var data = order.Where(or => or.OrderID == value.OrderID).FirstOrDefault(); 
            if (data == null) 
                order.Insert(0, value); 
                throw new Exception("Duplicate values cannot be inserted"); //Add custom exception message 
            return Json(value); 
We have attached a sample for your reference. Please find the sample below:
