MultiSelect Control defaultSelected
In order to check dirty tracking, I would like to check the defaultSelected of the option of the MultiSelectControl. This now does not work.

After further investigation, we decided to address the underlying use case in a different manner. Detailed discussion here:

Hi Daniel,

A detailed research showed us that the `defaultSelected` property will work only when widget is bound once. Basically, the default selected options could be lost on a subsequent server filtering or paging, which will defeat the initial goal of the dirty tracking functionality.

What we could do in this case is to keep the `selected` attributes only on initial rendering. Would that be sufficient for you?

Thanks for clarifying your request.

Exactly. We have MultiSelect controls in our application which we can not use because we can not properly check for dirty changes. of course there are work around for that, but defaultSelected would be the cleanest way.
