Using the ASP.NET MVC Wrapper, how do I specify an object for the OptionLabel (as opposed to just a simple string)?

Hello Chris,


Currently, this MVC wrapper supports only string option label value. If you need to define an object for the optionLabel option, then you will need to initialize DropDownList widget using JavaScript. I will log your request in our product backlog. We'll have implemented this functionality by the next official release of Kendo UI.

Hello Georgi,

Is this feature available in the latest release? (ASP.NET MVC 2013.3 1119 Version) I am also looking to implement the same functionality as the OP. I could not find any documentation on the Kendo website on how this works with the MVC Wrappers.

Thanks,

Carl

Hi Carl,

Georgi announced the newly implemented enhancement on November 28. The current official Kendo UI version is 2013.3.1119.

http://docs.kendoui.com/api/framework/kendo#fields-version

You can try the latest internal build or wait for the Q3 SP1 release, which is due in mid January. The OptionLabel will support for example...

Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
   .OptionLabel(new {
      Text = "my label",
      Value = 0
})

In case you choose to check out an internal build, please note that we have identified a limitation of the OptionLabel when AutoBind() is set to false - it does not initially appear. This will be resolved for  the SP1 release.

Regards,
Dimo
