    I'm trying to select a value in my DDL list via the WatiN browser control debugging tool...

    Here is my input item: 

    <input id="ProviderList" name="ProviderList" style="width:400px" type="text" /><script>
    jQuery(function(){jQuery("#ProviderList").kendoDropDownList({"dataBound":dataBoundProviderList,"dataSource":[{"Key":"001","Value":"001 Provider 1"},{"Key":"002","Value":"002 Provider 2"}],"dataTextField":"Value","dataValueField":"Key"});});


    I tried the following without success to preselect the 2nd item in my unit test:

      TextField providerListElement = Browser.TextField(Find.ByName("ProviderList"));


    //via a jquery script from WatiN:

    // or another attempt via WatiN using jquery:
    var dropdownlist = $(\"#ProviderList\").data(\"kendoDropDownList\"); (dataItem) { return dataItem.symbol === \"002\";});");

    // and one more try:

    Browser.Eval("$(document).ready(function() { " +
                            " var dropdownlist = $(\"#ProviderList\").data(\"kendoDropDownList\"); " +
                            " (dataItem) { return dataItem.symbol === \"02\"});" +
                            "});  ");

    //also tried treating it as text field

    providerListElement.Value = "002";

    //as text field using simulated typing


    Nothing seems to let the field change.

     Any thoughts would be helpful!

    figured it out. 

    Browser.Eval("$(\"#ProviderList\").data(\"kendoDropDownList\").value(\"" + providerValue + "\");");
