Hello, 
hoping that this will be simple, i am trying to show all the root collections exposed by a odata service. The code looks like this

  $(document).ready(
        function () {
            $("#widgetList").kendoDropDownList({
                dataSource:
                {
                    type: "json",
                    transport:
                    {
                        read: "/DynamicOData/oData/?$format=json"
                    }
                }
            })
        });

the values returned are by the service is
{
"d" : {
"EntitySets": [
"TopSellers", "WorstSellers"
]
}
}

Hello Ashish,

You should use the DataSource schema data function to get the needed data from the returned result or specify the path from which it can be retrieved e.g.

dataSource:
{
    type: "json",
    transport:
    {
        read: "/DynamicOData/oData/?$format=json"
    },
    schema: {     
        data: "d.EntitySets"
    }
}
