    I´m developing a CRUD application and I have a cascade ddl working fine in my Create view :
    @Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(model => model.CarSelected).BindTo(Model.Cars)
    @(Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(x =>           x.CarModelSelected).DataTextField("Name").DataValueField("Id")
          .DataSource(source => source.Read(read => read.Action("CarModels", "Car")
    That works great...

    But in a Edit view, I have to previous load the car model selected, so I have something like that :
    public ActionResult Edit(int id)
          var car = repository.load(id);
          CarVm carVm = car.InjectFrom(car);
          carVm.CarModelSelected = car.Model.Id;
          return View(carVm);
    It works great and my inital Edit view is loaded fine...
    Now when I change the car, it loads all car model (cascade) but the CarModelSelected keep the inital value, and the CarModel DropDown dont reset to OptionLabel "Select" .

    So, If open a View with :Car A Model AB, change car to "Select", and after select Car A again, the model AB will be selected automatically

    How can I fix that?

    Hello Luciano,

    Here is a quote of the answer to the support ticket opened on the same subject:

    Thank you for contacting us. The cascading functionality was designed to persist widget's value if it can be found in the data which the widget is bound to. Nevertheless, we decided to change this behavior and to reset child's value when user triggers the cascade. This change is available in the latest internal build of Kendo UI. Please download it and give it a try. Let me know if the problem still persists.

    I will suggest you continue our discussion in the support thread to avoid any duplication.

    I am wondering the reverse here.  Is there a way, after a cascade is triggered, to actually make the previously selected value persist if it can be found in the data which the dropdownlist is bound to?

    Hi Mike,

    You can subscribe to the change event and store the values when it is triggered. Then, you can try restoring them once the cascade event is triggered.
