I have a Kendo ListBox that I need to set a single item selected through a JavaScript function. I know both the text and value that I want to set, but can't figure out how. Any help appreciated!

Steve.

Hello Steve,

You can use the add method to achieve this requirement. You can find a live sample demonstrating that here:
https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/listbox/api

I hope this will prove helpful.

Sorry, that's not quite it. I have an existing list with, say, 5 items in it and I want to select item #2. More specifically, I want to select the one with the value of 2.

Hi Steve,

You can use the select method in this case:
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/listbox/methods/select

I've also provided a live dojo sample for demonstration:
