    Hello Steve,

     
    The group support for AutoComplete/ComboBox/DropDownList/MultiSelect is in our ToDo list, but currently we have task with higher priorities and we cannot commit with a concrete time frame.

    Thanks, just as an FYI I tried to bind directly to this: https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/wiki/Font-Awesome-HTML-Dropdown-Select-List

    Hacked around by extracting the text\values from the "hidden" html into JS objects then re-binding to kendo.  Would love that group support sometime.

    Any movement on this functionality ?

    I have the same requirements , have recently started evaluating KendoUI  (downloaded precompiled versions from the Kendo web site a few days ago), and do not see any support for OptGroup in ComboBox.

    Hi Karl,

    The functionality is not supported when the widgets are bound to DataSource.
    See the following help topic: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/editors/combobox/grouping

    Demo: http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/dropdownlist/grouping

    I am not binding the widget to a DataSource.

    The HTML SELECT is within the webpage (similar to the original poster of this thread) and OPTGROUP is not working.

    Hello Karl,

    Grouping is supported only when the widget is bound to a grouped dataSource.
