Allow for long lists to split into multiple columns instead of a single long list

When you have a very long list of items to display in the tree view its not always ideal to have a vertical scroll.  In order to better utilize space and allow for the user to see more options on the screen at once it would be nice to have a configuration to allow for the list to be split up into columns.  So for example if you have a list of 90 items, you can maybe have 3 columns of 30 items each.  Please see the attached image that demonstrates what I am referring too.  


The Kendo Silverlight does have something similar:

Hi James,

Thank you for the provided feedback.

In order to handle large amounts of data in the TreeView, the developer can enable the load more button, which will load the next portion of data on demand:

The initial idea of the TreeView is to represent a file system in a single column. Displaying the items in several columns will alter the default design of the component. An alternative approach to achieve such a layout is to define several TreeView components side by side.
