To get or set property values for client API properties, you must call property accessor methods that are named with the get_ and set_ prefixes. For example, to get or set a value for a property such as cancel, you call the get_cancel() or set_cancel().

The get_dataKeyValues() method is supported only with server data binding. If you are using client binding, see the Item drag and drop with client data binding KB article.
