Hello everybody!

through the model I get ID (for example 12) of my selected DDL element value, but the control does not display the selected element, and displays the WatermarkText.

Hi John, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products. 

We are not able to reproduced the reported issue for “display selected value instead of WatermarkText”. We have prepared sample for your requirement for selected item displayed in the dropdownlist. We have attached sample below link.  

var obj = $("#bikeList").data("ejDropDownList"); 


Please provide us with an issue reproducing sample along with replication steps. It will help us isolate the root cause and provide a solution. 
Gopi G.
