Hey Guys

Here's another odd one and I wonder if there is any way to do this.

I use a template to provide additional information about the selection and ideally I want to refresh this every X seconds without having to reload the whole data source.

 Currently this extra info is added using the template:

template: '<div class="k-state-default"><span class = "left">#: data.Name #</span><span class="right">(#: data.waittime #)</span>',

Is there any way I can update the 'waittime' part of the template without having to refresh the whole datasource. ? ( I guess reloading the whole datasource will screw up the current selection)

I'm doubtful , but hopeful :)

Many thanks In advance

 Rob

After trying lots of things ( including updating the actual HTML values of the templates via Java) I have settled on just changing to Server side Filtering so I am always returning refreshed wait times when ever the user opens the auto complete or searches.

 

Seems like a pretty good solution all round..

Hello Rob,

The rendering of the AutoComplete items are directly related to the DataSource. If you would like to update the displayed text, you will need to update the source. Here is a demo that shows how to accomplish this task:
