Hi,

I'd like to specify a header template (http://demos.kendoui.com/web/combobox/template.html) for my MVVM Combobox. I've tried data-header-template and data-headertemplate. Neither works. Please advise.

data-template works fine, btw.

EDIT - added jsfiddle link: http://jsfiddle.net/6mHKF/20/

As you can see, the headerTemplate is ignored in the non-MVVM widget initialization method as well.

Thanks!

Hi Yotam,

Please note that when initializing the comboBox without MVVM the header template is working as expected (after updating the jsFiddle to use the latest KendoUI official release -v2013.3.1119). When initializing it using MVVM however a JavaScript exception is thrown - we will investigate further current behavior and follow you up in current thread when we have more information about current behavior. 

As a small sign of our appreciation I have updated your Telerik points.

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the answer.

If anyone's curios, I've gotten around this issue by prepending the desired element to "e.sender.list" on the dataBound event.

Best,
Yotam

Yotam,

Could you potentially post a code example of how you did this? I am using HTML only (no javascript) because I am rendering a combobox within a popup editor template. Simply declaring data-template-header does not work for me either.

Hi Josh,

The workaround I found requires javascript as you need to supply your own callback to an event (I used dataBound, but you can potentially use others).

I'm pretty sure you can do it with a combobox within a popup editor. If you'll post a fiddle or codepen I'll try to help you out.

Hi,

Please note that the fix is already included in latest official release of KendoUI - 2013 Q3 SP2 which is available for download from your accounts (at telerik.com). Please check the updated demo below:
