     I am experiencing an unusual behavior with dropdownlist within a grid using the keyboard navigation. When the dropdownlist has focus and I press the down arrow key, instead of going to the next item in the list, it goes all the way to the last item. Also I noticed that if I pressed the up arrow key before pressing the down key it works correctly. Is this a bug with your dropdownlist control? How can this be resolved? Thank you.

    Hello PrimePay,


    I am afraid that I am not able to replicate such problem with the DropDownList widget. Could you please try to replicate the described issue with http://dojo.telerik.com/eSiSE example. The first column has a DropDownList as editor.

    Hi Boyan,

     I was able to resolve the problem, it appears it might be a bug or an unintended side effect, but if you have the value primitive (data-value-primitive) attribute set to true on the dropdownlist input that's when the issue occurs. Setting the value binding primitive to false fixes the problem. 

    Hopefully this bit of information can help someone else with a similar issue.

     Thank you.
