DropDownList functionality to disable items
I would love to see the ability to disable/enable items in the DropDownList dynamically at run time.  We have complex validation rules in our UI that need to prevent the user from using certain items if other options are selected.  

The big problem is the DropDownList doesn't let me enable/disable items or add/remove them. 

This means instead of having a few change events wired up to enable/disable items, I need to do it in complex validation rules.

I think the ability to disable/enable items would be a valuable feature to the kendo framework.

We are closing this thread because of low interest, over a long period of time. As previously suggested, there is a workaround that allows achieving this functionality.

Thanks for the suggestion, Scott.

Is the solution discussed in this feedback thread ( feasible for your scenario? Note that it should be applicable for the dropdown list as well.
