    This code fails if the Guid is in uppercase:

     datasource.bind("change", function (e)
            var element = datasource.get('90a11073-cbfe-4442-9330-9b94d83d53a2')

    How can I make the id in the schema case insenstive?

    Hello Pedro,

    The get method compares the passed value directly and does not support using a case-insensitive search. You could implement this with a custom function which converts the id and the value to lower case:

    datasource.bind("change", function (e)
        var element = myGet(,'90a11073-cbfe-4442-9330-9b94d83d53a2');
    function myGet(data, value) {
        var lower = value.toLowerCase();
        for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
            if (data[i].id.toLowerCase() == lower) {             
                return data[i];
