Cancel ejDropDownList change event

I am trying to cancel the change event of the ejDropDownList so that the previously selected option remains selected.  The scenario for this is when validation a form field on dropdown selection change, if validation fails then the original option should remain selected.

I have tried using the change and select events, setting the args.cancel = true; but this does not work, the option still changes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Grant,   
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support    
Currently, we don’t have support to cancel the selected item in select event. This is known issue “Cancel the selected value through select event” in our side. Now, we have fixed this issue internally and it will be included in our upcoming Vol2 2016 release which is scheduled in the mid of this month (June, 2016).   
Please let me know if you have any other concern.
