Kendo Dropdownlist delete-filter behavior in Internet Explorer 11 (mouse vs keyboard)
When the user enters a filter, the list is filtered. But if the user deletes the filter by clicking on the X in the filter box, the list remains filtered. It does not revert to the full, unfiltered list. 

To get back to the full list, the user must delete the filter by backspacing or pressing the delete key on the keyboard.

This behavior is confusing some users, who have used the mouse to delete the filter in IE11.  There's no longer a filter string there, but the list is still filtered.

Can  the dropdownlist listen for the click that clears the filter string from the textbox?

The clear button "x" that used to be displayed in the DropDownList's filter input in IE has been removed since Q2 2016 SP2 release.

I tried to replicate this case in this demo ( using IE 11, but unfortunately to no avail. No X symbol was displayed in my case.

Can you modify the sample to simulate it? Alternatively, you can contact our support by submitting a support request at to get assistance.

I have screen captures to show what I mean, if uploading is possible?  The X is part of the IE11 textbox, I believe, not a kendo feature.

It's the dropdownlist. See markup below. In IE11, an "X" appears in the textbox where the filter string can be typed. When clicked, that "X" deletes the textbox contents, removing the filter (or so the user believes) but the list remains filtered unless the user hits the backspace key or the delete key.

 <select kendo-drop-down-list       k-data-source="titlesDropdownConfig.dataSource"  data-ng-model="mydata.articleid"
                           k-options="titlesDropdownConfig" id="titlesDropdown">

Tim, do you have in mind the multiselect widget filtering here, since the dropdown list does not provide the X option to clear filters? 

If so, note that the filter list is reset when you select a particular item or remove the filter via the X option. You can test it here:

and let me know if I am missing something from your logic.
