    Hi Telerik Team,

    We are facing an issue with the Kendo ComboBox Control on MVC5. 

    Is there any way to avoid/deactivate the AutoPostBack of the ComboBox when the user press the enter key? We've tried to bind by jQuery other functions on keypress and keydown events without luck.


    Here is the code:

             .Placeholder("Seleccione Usuarios...")
             .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "form-control", @style = "width: 100%" })
             .DataSource(source =>
                 source.Read(read =>
                     read.Action("GetUsers", "Perfil")

    function filterUsers() {
            return {
                userFilter: $("#cmbUsuarios").data("kendoComboBox").text()


    Version of Kendo.Mvc: 2015.1.318.545

    Hello Santiago,

    If my understanding is correct, you would like to prevent form post when user presses ENTER key. If this is the case, then I would suggest you check this how-to demo.
