    Hi, I fill a jqxComboBox with custom data. The valueMember is not unique in my case. Sometimes there are two the same names. However, they differ in the UI through a custom renderer, and one of the datafields holds a version number. This works great, but when I use getSelectedItems to obtain the version, it is always the highest version.

    var source =
            datatype: "json",
            datafields: [
                { name: 'testId' },
                { name: 'version' },
                { name: 'shortName' },
                { name: 'description' },
                { name: 'index' },
                { name: 'credit' },
                { name: 'creditLicence' }
            url: url,
            async: true,
            data: { "languageId": languageId, "all": all }
        var data = [];
        var dataAdapter = new $.jqx.dataAdapter(source,
                loadComplete: function (records) {
                    console.log("get tests length :" + records.length);
                beforeLoadComplete: function (records) {
                    data = records;
                    return records;
            selectedIndex: 0,
            theme: 'energyblue',
            searchMode: 'containsignorecase',
            multiSelect: true,
            autoOpen: true,
            source: dataAdapter,
            displayMember: 'shortName',
            valueMember: 'testId',
            placeHolder: placeHolder,
            autoComplete: true,
            dropDownWidth: ddWidth,
            dropDownHorizontalAlignment: ddAlign,
            dropDownHeight: 550,
            width: width,
            height: 30,
            renderer: function (index) {
                if (data.length === 0) return "";
                var datarecord = data[index];
                var table = '<table><tr><td style="width: 120px;">' + datarecord.shortName + '</td><td>' + datarecord.description + '</td></tr></table>';
                return table;

    The selection is retrieved as follows:

     var items = $("#jqxComboTest").jqxComboBox('getSelectedItems');
                $.each(items, function (index) {
                    var testId = items[index].value;
                    var version =  items[index].originalItem.version

    In my case I have a testId with the same content, but 2 versions. The highest version is always returned, irrespective of the one selected in the UI.

    Is there another way to retrieve the proper version datafield?

    thx Pieter


    You cannot have same values, each value should be unique.
    Consider having different data field for the equal values
