As of the Kendo UI Q3 2016 release, the AutoComplete offers only one-way binding of objects or data items. When you use the
separatoroption, the value which is returned after the selection of multiple items will be always the primitive string value. To select multiple values and bind them with
ngModel, use the MultiSelect.
To see the example, refer to the article on binding objects to
ngModel instead of to primitive values in the DropDownList.
