I have a number of Drop Downs on a page, each representing a separate asset with their own identifier. The drop down options for each of these lists should be populated using an AJAX call to a service page that I have written which expects to be sent the identifier in the request. Here is a stripped down version of the code:
So what I want is when each input is instantiated as a KendoDropDownList for the DataSource's Read to be executed for each of the inputs with class "id_select" and sent the value of that input's particular "data-identifier" value (where I have put the ????'s in the example above). However I don't see any way to reference the data for the particular input from within the inline DataSource.
I have tried making the transport.read a function, using a parameterMap and anything else I could think of to throw at this. I'm beginning to wonder whether this is possible at all.
