    Currently upgrading our Kendo UI library from 2013.3.1324 to 2014.2.716 and getting a breaking change in the way the MVVM data binding is working. I used to be able to get the element / event "target" as a function parameter, but now there is nothing passed when "get" calls the target function. Is there documentation I might have missed outlining this breaking change?

    It can be demonstrated with the following JSBin (just swap out the Kendo UI src from 2013.3.1324 to 2014.2.716).,css,js,console,output

    Hello Greg,

    I replied to the same question in a support ticket from your colleague. For your convenience, I am pasting the answer here, too.

    If I understand your case correctly, in 1324, the passed object (in fact, undocumented and more or less present by coincidence) is actually the view model instance. You can test that with `console.log(e == this);`. You can safely use `this` instead, as this approach is documented and works with 716 version too.
