Hello,

I have a page with 2 kendoMultiSelect controls that have the same dataSource. When I start filtering in the first one, the second one loses all its selected values and vice-versa. Is this by design? If so, is it possible to have a shared dataSource for MultiSelect controls? Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Krisztian

Hello Krisztian,

I am afraid the widgets cannot use shared datasource when filtering is enabled. Basically, the selected items are related to the content of the datasource. If it is filtered not by the widget itself, it thinks that the source is updated and the selected items will be updated accordingly.

What I would suggest you is to use a separate source for the widget. Thus the filter state will be preserved too.

Hi Georgi,

that is exactly what I ended up doing. I use a separate dataSource for the multiSelect controls now. The odd thing is that it worked before switching form kendo UI core to kendo UI profressional.

Kind regards,

Krisztian
