I need help using viewbag value to hide a column in my Kendo UI grid

Hi Experts,
I have an MVC.Net application with C#.Net code behind.
I want to use a Viewbag value to determine if some columns in my Kendo UI grid should be hidden or not.

below is a snippet of the code I was trying to use, but it does not work.
How can I make this work?

columns: [
@if(ViewBag.AllowEdit)
{
        {   
             field: "IPA",
             title: "IPA",
         },
        {
             field: "TEST",
             title: "TEST",
        },
}

Thanks in advance,

Assuming that you have set ViewData[“AllowEdit”] = true; in the controller method that returns the View, this should work. Please explain what makes you say it doesn’t work?

When using Razor Inside javascript, you have to clearly mark where things start and end.
Use <text> around the javascript code:
columns: [
@if(ViewBag.AllowEdit)
{
        <text>
        {   
             field: "IPA",
             title: "IPA",
         },
        {
             field: "TEST",
             title: "TEST",
        },
        </text>
}
