    How I can cause the second combo box of cascading group of a combo boxes to automatically select the only item found after a user selects an item from the first combo box. While it may seem simply straight forward, it has proven quite difficult. JavaScript tricks such as select(0) or value(0) have not worked.

     

    Thank you for your help,

    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    The select() method of the Kendo UI ComboBox will do the trick, as long as it is invoked after all of the data items have loaded (you can handle the dataBound event):

    // ComboBox configuration
    ...
    dataBound:
    function(e){
      e.sender.select(0);
    },
    ...

    I hope this helps.
