    Is there anyway to remove the items that have been selected from the dropdown list already?  For instance, the multiselect functionality changed somewhere between 2014 - 2016.  The list used to only show items that were not already selected.  Now it shows all items and it shows items that have already been selected by highlighting them.  Is there an option to make it hide the selected items from list?  What was the reasoning behind changing the functionality?

    Hello Joey,

    In order to achieve the desired behavior you can simply apply the following css style rule, and add the class to the MultiSelect widget:

      .hide-selected > li.k-state-selected {
                display: none;
        $(document).ready(function () {
            var multiselect= $("#required").data("kendoMultiSelect");
