    Hi,

    I'm using your Listbox widget and i'm facing this issue:

    Everythime that i use it with data, all the options show up selected.

    Ex:
    <select...>
    <option value="1" selected>Item 1</option>
    <option value="2" selected>Item 2</option>
    <option value="3" selected>Item 3</option>
    ...

    Example here:
    https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/listbox/methods/dataitem

    When i manually select an option and send that information by POST, in 
    the server side i cant know the option selected.

    Is there any way to solve this problem?

    Thank you

    Hello Miguel,

    Based on the provided information I assume that the issue is that when the ListBox is bound to a dataSource (not initialized from already populated select element) all items are initially selected. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I have tested the described behavior in the following demo where the widget is bound to a remote data service and initially the items are not selected:


    Could you please provide us with the steps to reproduce the behavior?

    Having said that, sharing a demo that clearly replicates the issue would definitely help us fully understand the case and we will be able to provide further assistance to the best of our knowledge.

    I have noticed this behavior as well. I think what Miguel is describing is that the markup used to back the widget, specifically the <select> element, is generated with <option> elements that all have the "selected" attribute applied.
    The demo that you created, Georgi shows this as well if you look at the dev console:

    <div class="k-widget k-listbox k-listbox-toolbar-right" deselectable="on" title="" data-role="draggable" style="">

    ...

    <select id="optional" data-role="listbox" multiple="multiple" style="display: none;"><option value="ALFKI" selected="">Maria Anders</option><option value="ANATR" selected="">Ana

    </div>

    This causes problems when submitted the enclosing form via it's normal mechanisms and is frustrating in MVC applications where model binding bindings the first <option> element it encounters instead of the one selected by the user.

    Based the HTML living spec at https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/form-elements.html#attr-option-selected:
    "
    The selectedness of an option element is a boolean state, initially false. Except where otherwise specified, when the element is created, its selectedness must be set to true if the element has a selected attribute. Whenever an option element's selected attribute is added, if its dirtiness is false, its selectedness must be set to true. Whenever an optionelement's selected attribute is removed, if its dirtiness is false, its selectedness must be set to false.
    "

    Thus, even if the selected attribute is set to an empty string, it's mere existence on an <option> element signals to the user agent that the <option> is selected.

    Hi Kevin,

    By default when a select element is submitted, only the items with selected attribute are sent to the server. However, the Kendo Listbox is designed to submit all of the items it contains - which requires all items to have the selected attributed.

    The main purpose of the Kendo Listbox is the ability to use it in pairs and move the items between them. Then when submitted, on the server all items of both listboxes are received.
