Initializing the DropDownTree

You can initialize the Kendo UI DropDownTree widget from an input element and then bind it to local or remote data, or to flat data.

  • When you initialize the DropDownList, create it within a $(document).ready() statement because the widget has to be initialized after the DOM is fully loaded.
  • The DropDownTree copies any styles and CSS classes from the input element to the wrapper element and visible input.
