In a Telerik Grid, we had just implemented the new Grid Footer Template. However, any built-in filtering (filterrow, filtermenu, searchbox) we use now will cause the grid/page to crash when the input we type does not exist for any row in the grid. If the input we type does exist, the filtering works correctly. For instance, if wanted to filter the name "John Smith" and a row exists with that name, then that row will be filtered. If we typed in "John Smithasdf", then the grid crashes and we receive the following message from the DevTools window:
blazor.server.js:19 [2020-09-21T16:58:12.070Z] Error: System.InvalidOperationException: Nullable object must have a value.

at Microsoft.AspNetCore.Components.RenderTree.Renderer.RenderInExistingBatch(RenderQueueEntry renderQueueEntry)
From the highlighted text, we deduced the issue had to deal with the Grid Footer template. Not all of our columns are aggregated on the footer row, so we were thinking that's what the "Nullable object must have a value" message meant. When we removed the Grid Footer template, the filtering worked correctly. With one of our other grids, we added a temporary footer grid, and the same crash would occur.
Is there a work-around for this? The footer template otherwise is great, and we would like to use both that and filtering on our grids. Please let us know if you need any more info.
