Hello,

I'm currently trying to use the (lazy) Kendo DropDownList (not sure what the difference is with the non lazy). And there a couple of things I need and I'm not sure how to implement

1. I need to specify the 'select option' text (Kendo calls it the optionLabel ) 
2. I need to have titles for my elements (code, description)
3. Ideally I would like to load my data only before rendering and not having to provide them in the constructor.

So the end result should look like this:

Any pointers as to how I should implement the above?
The 3rd one seems the most tricky, but 1 & 2 should be doable without much code I imagine. When I can get it to work I will be happy to provide the enhanced dropdown to the community via PR.

Thank you in advance!
Haritos

Ok After some further digging it looks like Kendo Dropdown has elements called scriptTemplate, headerTemplate, footerTemplate and noDataTemplate (all of them of type="text/x-kendo-template")
to handle the list of data, the header etc. So I assume I have to use (and extend) the KendoTemplateBehavior class but I'm not really sure how to do it and how to tie everything together...

Here is a Dojo of how it all works:
