Hello again Shawn,
attribute to set the dataSource instead of source binding. Another option is to use the autoBind option to prevent the widget from binding to the data from the initial dataSource. In both cases, in order to use an option label in this scenario, you will also need to set an object with the calculated field set as function. I updated the jsBin
to demonstrate both options.
