ValueTemplateDirective

Renders the selected value of the dropdown. To define the header template, nest an <ng-template> tag with the kendo<ComponentName>ValueTemplate directive inside the component tag.

The template context is set to the current component. To get a reference to the current data item, use the let-dataItem directive.

The ValueTemplate directive can only be used with the DropDownList and DropDownTree components.

@Component({
selector: 'my-app',
template: `
 <kendo-dropdownlist [data]="listItems">
   <ng-template kendoDropDownListValueTemplate let-dataItem>
     <span>{{dataItem}} option</span>
   </ng-template>
 </kendo-dropdownlist>
`
})
class AppComponent {
  public listItems: Array<string> = ["Item 1", "Item 2", "Item 3", "Item 4"];
}

Selector

[kendoDropDownListValueTemplate],[kendoDropDownTreeValueTemplate]
