destroy

Prepares the ComboBox for safe removal from DOM. Detaches all event handlers and removes jQuery.data attributes to avoid memory leaks. Calls destroy method of any child Kendo widgets.

Important: This method does not remove the ComboBox element from DOM.

Example

<input id="combobox" />
<script>
$("#combobox").kendoComboBox();
var combobox = $("#combobox").data("kendoComboBox");
combobox.destroy();
</script>
