The scenario you described is not supported by the build-in selectable feature however you may easy configure it by using the jQuery and DataSource API methods.
Please check the following example: http://dojo.telerik.com/edeTA
Does the listview's 'change' event trigger when an item is added to the listview, or just if an item is clicked in the listview? If the latter, is there an event that will notify me if an item is added to the listview, or do I handle that in the dataSource?
event is fired only when the build-in selection changes (the example above does not use the build-in selection). DataSource change
event is fired when an item is added to the DataSource.
Finally, I would like to provide a default image for the six items in list 2, which would be replaced when those items are populated by selected items in list. I can't figure out how to use the template system to accomplish this. I haven't used the drag and drop controls before, perhaps those would be a better candidate for this implementation?
In order to assist you with this question I will need the template code and how your data looks like. Could you please modify the test page that I provided above so I can examine your implementation and advise you accordingly?
