Get selected value from Dropdownlist

Im using the latest version of Syncfusion Blazor (
I would like to get the selected item of a dropdownlist.
When i execute the button click and query _dropdown.Value, the result is always null.
I just updated the version, and it worked in older version of the components.
Thanks and regards,

Example code:
EjsDropDownList @ref="@_dropdown" TValue="int?" TItem="RowData" Placeholder="placeholder" DataSource="@list"
  DropDownListFieldSettings Value="Id" Text="Text">

EjsButton OnClick="@Clicked" /EjsButton

@code {
  public EjsDropDownList _dropdown;

  public List list = new List() {
    new RowData() { Id = 1, Text = "Text1"},
    new RowData() { Id = 2, Text = "Text2"}

  public void Clicked(MouseEventArgs args) {
    var value = _dropdown.Value; // <= always null


  public class RowData {
    public int Id { get; set; }
    public string Text { get; set; }

There are other (working) solutions, like hook the onChange event, buts not that clean, and i wouldnt like to do it with bindings...
