    I have a form with multiple combo boxes, all have the same OnSelect event.

    When I call the OnSelect I need to determine which combo box actually fired the event.


    Here is my OnSelect function...

    function combo_OnSelect(e) {
            var dataItem = this.dataItem(e.item.index());
            var control =  $(this).val();
            if (dataItem.Value == "Lookup") {
                var dialog = $("#window_Lookup").data("kendoWindow")

    The bolded part throws an error, so what is the correct way to determine the combo box name?

    Hello Neil,

    The widget's id(name) can be retrieved from its element. So in the ComboBox select event handler you can access it like this:
    var id = this.element.attr("id");
