Kendo UI MVC Grid not Refreshing on IE

Header

I have a standard Kendo UI MVC Grid binding to a remote data source via Ajax and WCF Data Services / OData.  When items are added to the data source or items are edited and I redirect to the action and view containing the grid, the grid refreshes perfectly fine in Chrome and Firefox.  It does not, however, refresh in Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10.  I have not tested 11, but I assume the behavior is the same.

Solution

This appears to be a caching issue.  Disabling the cache for that action solves the problem.  Disable the cache by adding the Output Cache attribute to your controller’s action:

[OutputCache(NoStore = true, Duration = 0, VaryByParam = "*")]
public ActionResult IncidentsRead([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request, IncidentSearchCriteria incidentSearchCriteria)
{
return this.Json(this.GetIncidentFlats(incidentSearchCriteria).ToDataSourceResult(request), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
}

Hope this helps someone!

Happy coding,
Tom Hundley

PS:  I very big thanks to Daniel on the Telerik support team to helping me identity and fix this issue!

  1. Why does this not work ? Did it work sometime ? I’ve spent 2 days trying to stop IE from caching AJAX calls from the grid, and I can’t get the grid to add any sort of parameter to stop caching.
