    seeing a weird issue with the latest kendo beta release.  If I include the jquery validating plugin (http://bassistance.de/jquery-plugins/jquery-plugin-validation/) in my project (this plugin is included by default in asp .net mvc apps btw) the dropDownList stops working properly in IE9 only.

    I'm not even using it for anything, it's just in there and basically it causes the dropDownList to not dropdown when the down arrow is clicked.  Sometimes it'll open on double-click.  Also you can get it to open if you just click on the text part of the control.

    I'm fortunate enough to be able to just remove the validation plugin but I'm sure others won't be so lucky :(

    any ideas??

    Hello Ryan,

    I tried to reproduce the case in IE9, but to no avail. Could you please check the screen cast and let me know if I missed something?

    For convenience I am also attaching the sample project that I used.

    heh, change the order of your script.  You've got jquery validate trying to load before jquery is loaded which makes validate oblivious.  ck the screenshot I attached.  Run it like that and you'll see the issue.  I got it to fail on my end

    Hi Ryan,

    Indeed the problem exists - I forwarded the issue to the developer team and the it was fixed. The fix will be available in our next official release.
    As a small sign of gratitude I updated your Telerik points.
