    When we press the enter key without selecting any item from the opened list area of an Autocomplete kendo plug-in, we may get an error 
    "Line: 217. Error: Unable to get value of the property 'index': object is null or undefined"
    in IE9. This is because the "item" object of the passed-in parameter "e" is null. The following fixed me this issue.

    if (e.item == null) return;
                    var dataItem = this.dataItem(e.item.index());
    I hope that a developer like me, makes use of this.

    Hello Sakthivel,

    Thank you for drawing attention to this issue. We decided to not raise select event, when end-user enters custom value and press ENTER. Thus the error will not be thrown. I have updated your Telerik points for the report.
