Hi, we updated our kendo version to the latest, and we found something strange.
I know, it's our fault, we shoud not "re-create" a kendo item, but we should check for widgetInstance, or .data("kendoxxx") before creating it.
But, in the previous version, we did not have that bug.
I think that you try to do your best to give us in return the previous instance if it already exists, but in that case, you did something more.
Look at this.
If I use setOptions ( in button click), no issue.
If I use kendoListView, to "re-create" it (in fact I don't want it to be re-created, but anyway...) it looks fine, but if you "inspect element", you will see an empty "k-listview-content" generated every time.
We adjust our code to check if the component is already created before creating it.
But I take time to mention it to you, because in the previous version, it was working without problems, when we tried to re-create a component by mistake.
