There are several ways to achieve your goal, which as far I understand is to persist DDL text in hidden field:
- The first approach is to wire the change event of the dropdownlist and set the text of the widget to hidden field. This approach excludes the MVVM.
- The second approach is to create a custom MVVM binder which will get the text of the dropdownlist and will set a property of the ViewModel. This property can be bound to the hidden field. Check this jsFiddle demo for more information.
All the best,
