                  elements.each(function() {
                        var element = $(this);     
                    var input = element.children("input");

                    input.prop("checked", element.hasClass("k-state-selected"));
                  });
                };
                // create MultiSelect from select HTML element

                    setTimeout(function() {
                      checkInputs(items);
                    });
                  },
