Description of problem:

Table does not load in ASP.net Core 3.1.

Since I read multiple topics regarding this in the forum and still can't find a solution I would like to report this as a bug.

    Isn't this the same question as your other thread? Please don't duplicate questions.

    Your JSON response is a string within a string. Note the outer quotes and the escaped quotes. I'm not familiar with ASP.net Core but it suggests that response in line 44 above (return Json(response);) is already a JSON string. Try using return response;.

    Nope, not working since it is of Type DtResponse and not of JsonResult.

    Hi,

    In your Startup.cs do you have something like this?:

            public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
            {
                services.AddControllers().AddNewtonsoftJson(); // Required in .NET Core 3 and later. Optional before
                services.AddMvc(option => option.EnableEndpointRouting = false);
            }
    

    Note how in .NET Core 3+ you need to explicitly add a JSON controller.

    Thanks a lot for the support allan.
    That fixed it, consider adding this to the documentation!

    Best regards

    Agreed - I'll get it added in :). Good to hear that did the job.
