Currently, the MultiSelect component indicates an item is selected with a dedicated CSS class - k-selected. This CSS class styles the item so that the whole row in the MultiSelect popup appears selected.
However, if checkbox selection is enabled, the k-selected class no longer appears - the only indication that an item is selected, remains the checkbox.
This request calls for an option to have both types of indication available and independently configurable.
Providing data for an item's selected state for use in a custom template is also desirable.
