    I am using CustomeditorTemplate for add/edit new Event. I have a Attendes mutiselect box and bydefault it should load the loggedin user. If i set the Default value then i can see the value selected but on save click Attendees is always null. but if i remove and add again or add another then i get the value. So somehow the Change Event is not triggered when Setting Default value.

    here is view code. Charlie is set Default so it Shows selected but on save click attendees is null.
    <div class="k-edit-label">
    @(Html.LabelFor(model => model.Attendees))
    <div data-container-for="Attendees" class="k-edit-field">
    @(Html.Kendo().MultiSelectFor(model => model.Attendees)
    .HtmlAttributes(new { data_bind = "value:Attendees" })
    .Value(new[] { new {Text="Charlie",Value="3" }})
    .TagTemplate("<span class='k-scheduler-mark' style='background-color:\\#= data.Color?Color:'' \\#'></span>\\#=Text\\#")
    .ItemTemplate("<span class='k-scheduler-mark' style='background-color:\\#= data.Color?Color:'' \\#'></span>\\#=Text\\#")
    .BindTo(new[] {
    new { Text = "Alex", Value = 1, Color = "\\#f8a398" },
    new { Text = "Bob", Value = 2, Color = "\\#51a0ed" },
    new { Text = "Charlie", Value = 3, Color = "\\#56ca85" }

    Hello Anamika,

    The Scheduler widget creates MVVM value bindings when editor form is created. MVVM value binding listens to change event of the widget in order to update the event. On the other hand, widget will not raise change event if its value is set through value method or as a configuration option (in your case Value method).
    That being said, you will need to trigger change event manually in order to notify the MVVM binding that widget value has been changed. You can do that in the dataBound event of the widget:


    Events(e => {

    function data_bound() {

    Let me know if this does not solve the issue.
