I believe that the widget does not allow item.value, because it is out of the defined <k-min, k-max>
range. Defining a more conditional setting of the min/max range solves the problem. Here is a Dojo demo
that I've prepared for better understanding.
As a side note, I would suggest you check the "Notes for ng-repeat" help topic
, as there are several important points you need to be aware of.
