I have a dropdownlist with remote data binding. I set up a filter on the datasource before the data is fully loaded. After data is bound to the datasource, I see my items in the list with first item selected. After upgrading kendo from 2015.1.408 to a 2017 version no item is selected after data is bound to the datastource. Is there a way to preserve the old behavior?
Example here: http://dojo.telerik.com/ItiLU Just change library to any 2017 version and the behavior changes too.
Note that I don't want to simply select the first item from the list, but my application uses Kendo MVC to choose value based on a field from the model of the view.
