Json serializer error

When I try to update the DataSource binding on the Grid I get the following error in the browser:

<EjsGrid DataSource="@ts" Toolbar="@gridToolbar">
    <GridEditSettings AllowAdding="true" AllowEditing="true" AllowDeleting="true"></GridEditSettings>
    <GridEvents OnActionComplete="OnComplete" TValue="TimeSheets" />
    <GridColumns>
…..



    public void GetTimesheet()
{
        ts = db.TimeSheets.Where(a => a.CustId == CustomerID).ToList();

    }

Hi Michael,  

Greetings from Syncfusion support.  

Query: “When I try to update the DataSource binding on the Grid I get the following error in the browser 
 
We have prepared a sample as per your suggestion and code example, but we are unable to reproduce the reported at our end. We have tried to update the data on Button click and we are able to update successfully. Kindly download the sample from below.  


The reported issue may occur when model class properties are complex properties of its own parent class. Please find some general links for self-reference loop error from below  



After referring the sample and solution, if you are still facing the issue kindly get back to us with following details.  

  1. Share the full grid rendering code example.
  2. Share the details about GetTimeSheets() method along with the model class.
  3. Are you facing the reported issue during the initial rendering or while updating the dataSource property?.
  4. If possible try to reproduce the reported issue in provided sample.

Requested details will be helpful for us to validate the reported issue at our end and provide solution as soon as possible. 

Regards,
Vignesh Natarajan.

Thanks,
this worked:
[JsonIgnore] 
[IgnoreDataMember] 
public virtual ICollection<Product> Products { get; set; }
