    I've noticed in working with KendoUI ComboBox widgets that the standard "labeled control" behavior within HTML breaks with these widgets.

    So in the following (taken from combobox demo page), when clicking on the "Categories" label, the ComboBox widget does not automatically get focus.

    <label for="categories">Categories:</label><input id="categories" style="width: 270px" />

    Seems to work fine with other widgets, like the DatePicker.

    Thank you.

    Hello Brian,

    Some widgets has a more complex rendering, where the initial element is not visible any more after initialization. This is the case with the ComboBox widget. I would suggest you check this help topic, which explains the case and provides a feasible workaround.
