Get ViewModel from HTML in Kendo

This is somthing that I keep forgetting. So I am copying this from the Telerik forums:

You can get the ViewModel using the kendoBindingTarget property of the HTML element (not jQuery object).
For example:


<form id="example">
<label>First Name:
    <input id="firstName" data-bind="value: firstName" />


kendo.bind($("#example"), viewModel);

$("#firstName").get(0).kendoBindingTarget.source; //the ViewModel
//or document.getElementById("firstName").kendoBindingTarget.source;

Note that kendoBindingTarget is property of the elements that are bound to a ViewModel, the parent container (in that case form#example) does not have such property.
