I have an existing dropdownlist which gets its data via ajax from api.
Now, I want to add an item "Add New" (just under the existing optionlabel) , which when clicked will open a kendo window.
1. First of all, is there any easy/direct way to do this?
2. One option that I could think of - and I am trying to get that working - is to add an item after the initial ajax data is loaded, and use onSelect to check if the option selected is "Add New" and open a window
However, I am not able to implement this. I am stuck at trying to add an additional item to the existing options (which as I mentioned is retrieved via ajax). How to do this? Please note that I already have a optionlabel which I want to retain (based on clients insistence).
Any idea how to achieve this?
PS: i cannot add this from server side api as that code is not in my control.
