In Core when the ComboBoxFor helper is used as an editor in a Grid (Shared/EditorTemplates) and its Name is set, the Grid does not render and no exception is displayed, to indicate that the Name option should not be set.
Reproducible in the Editing custom editor Grid demo.
@(Html.Kendo().ComboBoxFor(m => m) .Name("CategoryID") .DataValueField("CategoryID") .DataTextField("CategoryName") .BindTo((System.Collections.IEnumerable)ViewData["categories"]) )
We throw an exception when the Name is set (e.g. if the ComboBox is used outside of a Grid), but in this scenario it is not displayed.
An exception is thrown and its message is displayed.
