Hi, got it working by myself:

   $mitarbeiterFieldConfig = GridFieldConfig::create()->addComponents(
          new GridFieldToolbarHeader(),
          new GridFieldAddNewButton('toolbar-header-right'),
          new GridFieldSortableHeader(),
          new GridFieldDataColumns(),
          new GridFieldPaginator(10),
          new GridFieldEditButton(),
          new GridFieldDeleteAction(),
          new GridFieldDetailForm(),
          new GridFieldSortableRows('SortOrder')
         $mitarbeiterField = new GridField('Mitarbeiter', 'Mitarbeiterliste', new DataList('Mitarbeiter'), $mitarbeiterFieldConfig);
         $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Mitarbeiter', $mitarbeiterField);

greetings, carsten.

I have been having the same issue and have tried applying the changes you made with no success.

Which part of your changes in particular fixed the issue?

Anyone else have any experience using GridField in a SiteConfig extension?
