value String|Array

Define the value of the widget. It accepts 'String' when it is in single selection mode and 'Array' when multiple selection is enabled via checkboxes property.

Example

<input id="dropdowntree" />
<script>
    $("#dropdowntree").kendoDropDownTree({
        dataSource: [{ text: "item1", value: 1 }, { text: "item2", value: 2 }],
        value: '1'
    });
</script>

Important: Define a list of data items if widget is not initially bound

Example

<input id="dropdowntree" />
<script>
    $("#dropdowntree").kendoDropDownTree({
        autoBind: false,
        dataTextField: "productName",
        dataValueField: "productId",
        value: { productName: "Item 1", productId: "1" }
    });
</script>
