Hi, 

As my title says, the dataItem() method for the dropDownList does not return undefined (when selected item is blank) as the API says. 

API: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/dropdownlist#methods-dataItem
Demo: https://dojo.telerik.com/AxoTu

I dont know if this an error in the functionality of the widget or an error in the API. 

This threw me off for about 2 hours while I tried to figure out why my dropdown was returning null instead of undefined.

Regards,
Grant
