We recently updated to the latest kendoUI 2015.1.429 and noticed a weird issue on the dropdownlist select event. Here is the code:
When I set an OptionLabel and get the dataItem using e.item.index() in the select event, I get the previous data item in the list. However, if I removed the index() and just use this.dataItem(e.item); then it works fine. Also, in cases where I don't use the OptionLabel and in KendoComboBoxes are OK. Has this changed since the last update? I ask because we are doing this in many places and also noticed this usage on other posts in this forum as well.
