$("#combobox").kendoComboBox({
  dataSource: [ "Apples", "Oranges" ],
  filter: "startswith",

$("#combobox").kendoComboBox({

  filter: "startswith",
  filtering: function(e) {
      var filter = e.filter;

      if (!filter.value) {
        //prevent filtering if the filter does not value
        e.preventDefault();
      }
  }
});
</script>
