Support dependent and computed observables
Kendo's MVVM needs to support dependent and computed observables to further assist the UI logic. As the business rules get heavier with each revision, the lack of these types are forcing to use more spaghetti jquery code to compensate. [The example below is simple, and designed in part to be in a stand alone JS file that makes the ViewModel available to all functions contained within.]
Here is the version working with KnockoutJs: http://jsfiddle.net/piercove/S6Q8D/2/
Here is a workaround with the current version of Kendo MVVM: http://jsbin.com/AZiSopO/1/edit
The workaround essentially is forcing the "change" binding onto the view model, which is ok for a work around, but should be built into the framework to be automatic.
