Hi Guys,

Im using Kendo MVVM to bind a row template to a datasource array and all works fine. But in in the row template i have a dropdownlist that im trying to bind to a datasource but cant get it to work properly. 

I have tried binding the dropdownlist to the kendo observable viewmodel variable and also to a field directly in array datasource but both approaches do not work.

I would like to know if this scenario is supported in Kendo MVVM to bind a dropdownlist inside a datasource array?

Here there is a sample prototype http://dojo.telerik.com/@silviu/ImoFe/14

Cheers!

Hi Guy, 

I noticed that wrapping the source array for the dropdownlist in a datasource works as expected.

But somehow the plain array as source doesnt work in MVVM array binding mode as it does for single dropdownlist binding.

Wonder if this is a bug or known limitation?

Cheers!

Hello CORNEL,

This is the expected behavior as the widget will expect a dataSource instance to be used when wrapped in a template. Currently we do not plan on introducing a change in this behavior.

Thanks for the understanding.

Hi Kiril,

I see.. and is good to keep in mind this distinction when implementing the code.

Thanks for clarifying my query.

Cheers!
