Use Kestrel in an ASP.NET Core application with dynamic Grid


Product Grid for Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET Core


After I upgraded kendo.all.min.js from v2019.3.1023 to v2020.1.114 and ASP.NET Core from 2.2 to 3.1 I have trouble with the dynamic creation of columns and datatypes. The functionality works on core 2.2 and doesn't work on core 3.1. The main problem is that there is no error reported server or client side. The response is just not rendering the grid.


After I deleted almost everything an error occured:

    Synchronous operations are disallowed. Call WriteAsync or set AllowSynchronousIO to true instead.

It appears that .NET Core changed the defaults so you need to add the following code in Startup.cs:

    services.Configure<IISServerOptions>(options =>
        options.AllowSynchronousIO = true;
