    hi there, 

    When we used your example


    and added a single line (the one with refresh)

    $(document).ready(function() {
            placeholder: "Select product",
            dataTextField: "ProductName",
            dataValueField: "ProductID",
            filter: "contains",
            autoBind: false,
            minLength: 3,
            dataSource: {
                type: "odata",
                serverFiltering: true,
                transport: {
                    read: {
                        url: "http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/Northwind.svc/Products",

    we had an strange behaviour

    if you type in the text field - everything is normal

    if you press on the arrow, no items will be shown, over network we saw, that the datasource has not been read.


    best regards

    Hello Mathias,

    Indeed, the widget will not show any items, because the underlying list will use the current state of the source (it is empty because of the autoBind:false). On open, it will not request the data, as the widget is bound, because of the explicit call of the refresh method. This behavior is different from Q3 2014, but I believe that calling refresh method after widget's initialization is not needed. I believe that you need to call dataSource.read method if you would like to populate the widget.

    Could you elaborate a bit why would you need to call refresh method instead of datasource's read or fetch?
