    When I use a checkbox it will update my view model no problem, but when I turn on data-role="switch" it no longer updates. Is there something I need to do differently.

    How did you bind your data to the switch?

    Hi Richard,

    When you add a data-role="switch" attribute to the input kendo mobile application will initialize a widget. In order to monitor its state you can hook up to to the change event of the component via data-change attribute.
    <input id="foo" data-role="switch" data-change="isChecked" />
    function isChecked(e) {
        //change event

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
