    Hi everyone.

    I have an issue with some comboboxes which I create dynamically inside a template for a listview.

    I need to be able to get the value of the combobox when a button is clicked and use that value to update my datasource. My problem is that I cannot isolate the combobox in order to get the data.

    Can someone please have a look at my code and give me some ideas??


    <script type="text/x-kendo-template" id="packagesTemplate">       
            <h3 class="item-title">${Name}</h3>
            <p class="item-info">Status: ${Status}</p>                
            <select data-role="comboBox" id="select#:id#" >
            <option value="Pending">Pending</option>
            <option value="Delivered">Delivered</option>
            <option value="Damaged">Damaged</option>
            <option value="Refused">Refused</option>
            <a data-role="button" data-item-id="#:id#" data-click="saveChanges" class="details-link">Save Changes</a>

    I have no problem getting the dataItem from the button click (var button = e.button). Is there no way to get the combobox in a similar fashion? (var combo = e.comboBox)? I have tried everything I can think of and nothing seems to be working.

    Button Click: (This must get the combobox value/text)

    function saveChanges(e) {
                var button = e.button,
                    item = packageDataSource.get(button.data("itemId"));
