    I'm having trouble finding much in the way of documentation on the split button, but, given this demo: http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/toolbar/events, let's say that I select Action 2 from the splitButton, and when I reopen the splitButton I want to indicate that Action 2 is what is currently selected, how might I go about that?

    Hello Larissa,

    By default selected styles are not applied to the selected button in the SplitButton. You can however apply such through jQuery and CSS. Here's a sample dojo, which shows how this can be done. The custom selectedButton class is set to the selected button in the SplitButton's click handler and this class is used in a CSS rule, which applies background color to the corresponding element:
    .selectedButton {
      background-color: #b6bdca !important;

    I hope this information was helpful.
