    After opening dropdownlist, if due to some reason my dropdownlist position change on my web page, can i retain it's open state (whatever state dropdown is in before it's position change) while dropdown position is changing. Is this natively supported by control.


    Please help me on this.

    Hello Gaurav,

    The DropDownList (applicable to all Kendo widgets with popup element) is designed to close its popup on scroll.

    If you would like to prevent this built-in behavior, then you will need to prevent the close event thus keeping the popup opened. Most probably you will need to re-position the popup when the page is scrolled:
    close: function(e) {
