I'm trying to figure out how to access parent level data using template syntax (#: parentId #) as opposed to data-bind="text: parentId" syntax. The data-bind syntax finds the parent data, but the template syntax does not. I'm trying to create a path so I cannot use data-bind syntax. I've created an example to demonstrate the problem here:
If you remove #: parentId # from the template, it will work again.
I assume that it is supposed to automatically retrieve parent data the way data-bind works, but perhaps it just doesn't work the same way.
