I understand that you can't filter by multiple fields, but is there a way to specify a different field to filter on than the one used in the DataTextField? I have a combobox that uses templates to display a "dropdown table" so the user can see both the ID and the Description, but when they select and item it needs to display just the ID in the combo box's display. When they type the letters "AJ" they will find my sample data item below, but if they type "American" it won't find the item because it does not match the ID specified in the DataTextField. Is there a way to keep "ID" as the DataTextField but have the filter use the field called "Combined"?
@(Html.Kendo().ComboBoxFor(m => m.PublicationId)
and my Data "Model.Publications" looks like this:
"AJ American Journal"
