I've been trying to get my comboboxes cascading correctly using the guide on the Cascading ComboBoxes page and I think the information there may be incorrect. I wanted to use the approach where I set the parameters manually and copied the code at the very bottom of the page:

$("#child").kendoComboBox({
   cascadeFrom: "parent",
   dataTextField: "childName",
   dataValueField: "childID",
   dataSource: {
       transport: {
           read: {
               url: "",
               data: {
                   parentID: $("#parent").val()
               }
           }
       }
   }
});

This doesn't work, since I believe parentID: $("#parent").val() is interpreted at set up time, rather than when cascading. The correct code for the data portion would be: 
data: function() {
    parentID: $("#parent").val()
}

In the answer there's a reference to the "How it works" section - I couldn't find this, could a link be provided if it still exists?
