    I’m trying to select a specific item in the dropdown on loadcomplete, however, the dropdown populates, but doesn’t initially select anything. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Much appreciated.

    var pltcSessionDropDown = function(){
    var pltcSessions =
    datatype: “json”,
    { name: ‘pltc_session_id’, type: ‘string’ },
    { name: ‘pltc_session_nm’, type: ‘string’ }
    url: ‘includes/reports.cfc?method=pltcSessions’
    var sessionDataAdapter = new $.jqx.dataAdapter(pltcSessions,
    loadComplete: function () {
    $(“#myDropDown”).jqxDropDownList(‘selectItem’, ‘1709’);

    return sessionDataAdapter

    var dataAdapter = pltcSessionDropDown();

    $(“#myDropDown”).jqxDropDownList({source: dataAdapter, displayMember: “pltc_session_nm”, valueMember: “pltc_session_id”, theme:’bootstrap’});

    Hello Weibing,

    Do you receive any error message in the console?
    If you know the exact index of the item you could use selectedIndex property.
    Also, if this does not help you could get all items with var items = $("#jqxDropDownList").jqxDropDownList('getItems'); and with iteration to select desired item with “selectIndex” method.

    Best Regards,
