    I believe this is due to me data-binding twice, once on initialization for default and another after initialization. I am using both MVC and Javascript... but the javascript is in a different folder.

                                        source =>
                                                  source.Read(read =>
                                                      read.Action(methodName, controllerName);



 "kendoMultiSelect").bind("select", selectAll);


    After selecting them. When I click it's fine, however on hitting the "enter" key it fires off both selects and selects it twice. Am I looking in the right place? Or is it because of my handler method.


    function selectAll(e) {
            var dataItem = e.item;
            var values = this.value();

            if (dataItem.text() === "ALL") {
                values = (item) {
                    return item.value;
            else {
                var index = $.inArray("ALL",values);
                if (index > -1) {
                    values.splice(index, 1);

    Hello Justin,

    The provided code does not demonstrate the double data-binding. All I see is that the dataSource is being configured in the MVC helper code and the "select" event is bound later.

    Could you please provide more detailed code snippets?

    The following sentence is also unclear to me:

    "I am using both MVC and Javascript... but the javascript is in a different folder."
