Add a way to check if the current AutoComplete value would be in the suggestions. Since the widget already searched for the value to see if it is in suggestions I would prefer to be able to check the result of that search. Something like calling but not have it affect the UI - just tell me if it was found or not. Is that possible?

I want to be able to alter the UI if the user has entered a value that is not detected in the suggestions to let them know it is not a valid value, and it seems silly to have to manually see if the value is in the datasource (and handle the filter variants 'startsWith' and 'contains') when that is already being done by the widget. So, I'm just looking to detect whether the search done by the widget found the value in suggestions or not.

When using AngularJS binding for dropdownlist options in the latest version of Kendo (2018.3.1017), the option labels are not dynamically bound to the scope/controller.  I changed one of the options to have the label {{::foo}} and set the field foo to "BAR" when initializing the scope.  When I run this code with the latest version, the literal text "{{::foo}}" is displayed for the first item of the drop down.  When I use an older version of Kendo (2018.2.516), the text "BAR" is displayed for that item.  This is a regression bug that is causing an error in our product.

Here is a testcase that illustrates the problem.  To toggle between the working and broken versions, change the CDN values.
