I have a combo box set up to cascade to another combo box. This works. I have mapped both a change event and a select event in the "parent" - - both of which also work. I am planning to observer the state of the "parent" knockout via the knockout-kendo plugin. I expect this to work.
BUT - I need to be able to trigger the cascade programmatically, as well. That is, I need to programmatically change the selected index of the "parent". To test this in advance of mapping it in knockout, I have a test button that successfully
changes the selected item in the "parent". So, this works.
Here is problem: neither the change event nor a select event are triggered in response to the following (which is in the test button click handler):
var cbx = $("select").data("kendoComboBox")
That is, the combo box changes state but kendo is not triggering either of the events.
I have tried this in various fiddles (modifying a similar situation) and it does not work there either.
This is quite important to us, so please let me know if this is not supported.
