I have successfully populated a select menu and can navigate the menu in the UI just fine.
However, when I go to query either the selectmenu val() or the selected option val(), neither of them reflect what I just selected. It is returning a value, but not the correct one, that I just selected.
This seems like a but to me, but I'd like to at least find a workaround if possible.
I'm using jQuery UI 1.12.1 against jQuery 1.12.4 in an ASP.NET MVC 5 (AFAIK, V5) web page.
