Iam trying to make to work simple dropdownlist. Here is a link to example:
I want to make it work so the value set to model on scope will be present in textbox of dropdownlist.
Why I need this? I got a form where user can input FirstName, to speed it up for user I have a table with FirstNames ( not having any id as each FirstName is unique ). I dont wnat to use any nested models or data-text-value fields etc. The dropdown needs to be filterable so basicly there can be a case where model have FirstName that doesnt exists in DropDown datasource ( as I filter it using server filtering ). Also I have to use ng-model instead of k-ng-model because I have validation that watches only ng-model.
I tried many solutions but none of them worked. Is it possible what I am asking for?
