    I found that ServerFiltering is not working out of the box if you set Custo() in datasorce

    Like in this example


    This is about AutoComplete control. And text send to server via onAdditionalData Function

    How I need to do same for DropDownList.

    my solution to access filter text input is

        function onAdditionalData() {
            return {
                text: $("#Course").data("kendoDropDownList").filterInput[0].value


    Looks a bit awkward for me

    Can team please explain what if better way here

    Yes this is the correct way to get the string from the filter input - it is not an official value of the control because the value will not be set if there is no item with such value.

    Hope this will explain the issue.
