Hi, 

As my title suggests, Im trying to set the initial value of a comboboxthat uses Server Filtering.

A perfect example is your own Server Filter Demo (http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/combobox/serverfiltering). Using this as an example, Im trying to have product 'Chai' (ProductID: 1) pre-selected before the user starts interacting with the widget.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks and kind Regards, 
Grant

Hello Grant,

In the linked demo the ComboBox' autoBind option is set to false. Thus on initialization it is not bound, i.e. its data source does not contain items, therefore there is nothing to pre-select. You can however call the widget's value method, which, if the ComboBox is not bound, will fetch the data and set the value. Dojo example.
