    I am having a problem here getting an AutoComplete to completely refresh.  It is actually tied to the text as well as another dropdown, so when the dropdown changes, I want to 'forget' it ever looked anything up.  Once I type into my AC, it works perfectly, but trying to reset it is proving to be a problem.  I am doing the following:

    $('#clear').on('click', function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        acManConfId.value(""); // .data("kendoAutoComplete"); object
        kendoManufacturerConfirmationIdDataSource.filter({}); //autocomplete datasource
    });

    But I am still not getting new reads over ajax in my firebug console, it is just reading from the old data.  All I want is to have the whole thing completely reset.  Thank you.

    Hello Stan,

    You can use the autocomplete dataSource read method to reload the data from the service:

    acManConfId.dataSource.read();
    Kind regards,
