Jumping in here to provide some updates to this item for anyone interested.
The quick version is that the Kendo UI for Angular Grid does indeed support locking columns to the right-hand side!
When it comes to locked, or frozen, columns you have a couple of options available as of today (May, 2021).
First, you have the traditional locked columns feature. This can lock columns on the left-hand side (the default) or right-hand side (when in RTL mode). These columns are permanently locked/frozen as other columns are scrolled by. A locked column can be defined ahead of time, or dynamically added as well.
Next you have the Kendo UI for Angular Grid Sticky Columns feature, introduced with R2 2021. This is similar to locked columns in that they can be displayed to the left or right of the Grid and be stuck permanently as users scroll through the rest of the columns. However, the big difference is that these columns can also become "un-stuck" when a user scrolls past their original position in the Grid. This also means columns can initially be a normal column but then appear in the locked/frozen section after a user scrolls past the column's position. This ability to be frozen and un-frozen is traditionally referred to as being "sticky"!
Introducing a functionality that would allow choosing which side of the Grid the locked columns will be at and/or having locked columns at both ends is still not a part of our immediate plans as we are currently focusing our developing efforts on other Grid and other component enhancements, as well as introducing some new components.
That being said, we are aware of the fact that this is a popular feature request, and are tracking the demand here, and also looking into options for the best implementation that will allow for introducing the enhanced locked columns feature in a manner that will not break any existing functionality or hinder the performance.
Once we have a clearer vision of when we will start working on this feature, we will update this thread accordingly.
Thank you for the understanding.
