How can I get the DataValueField from the selected item on the change event of the Kendo UI ListBox? 


To achieve the desired scenario:

  1. Retrieve the selected element.
  2. Based on the selected element, retrieve the information for the dataItem that is associated with the following line:

    function onChange(e) {
        var element =;
        var dataItem = e.sender.dataItem(element[0])
