I have a dropdown list of states and the keyboard hitting 'n' key doesn't cycle through the states like a default one does.  See this fiddle:

Is this a bug or how do i enable the default behavior as well.

Hello Trent,

 
The DropDownList will try to select the first item which starts with the typed word. It will not cycle through the other items. I will log your requirement into our internal system for further consideration. If other users need such functionality we will schedule it for investigation.

I would consider this a bug as it blocks normal functionality of a dropdown.  Don't most of the kendo controls 'enhance' existing controls?

Hello Trent,

The DropDownList widget wraps the Select element and build a DataSource using its data. The other functionality is specific related with the DropDownList's implementation, which currently supports only "search" and not loop through items which starts with same letter. I will suggest you use our uservoice to share your requirement. Thus more people will be able to cast their vote for this functionality.


Kind regards,

I have to agree with Trent that this should be considered a bug. Our team immediately noticed this upon implementation.

I didn't see the suggestion on the uservoice, so I went ahead and added it:

This absolutely a bug and I'm not sure how someone could consider it anything else.  If the "enhancement" unconditionally overrides the default behavior of the standard HTML Control then it is a problem.  It's been nearly 6 months since the initial report and this is still unresolved.

Hello,

 
Implementation of this functionality is scheduled for the next official release of Kendo UI - end of March 2013.
