 when the fix for the Grid is made, the same approach can be used for the ListBox as well

I have added a column and its cells are acting like row headers, upon clicking on row headers, I am doing following:

var grid = $(".k-grid").data("kendoGrid");
var row = $("tr"); // e is the argument being received in click event.;

This piece of code is not working rather throwing exception from kendo.all.min.js:
Unable to get property 'options' of undefined.

They should have provided a way around until it gets available as feature.

i agree with this working on a hybrid app issue where everything works on single select mode but on ipad when wanting to create a select all button the single select on grid becomes a show stopper out of the box.

Almost 2 years later and still no sign of this feature being implemented?! I will likely need to use something similar to what @Jon has implemented and include an additional column just for checkbox selections?!

The same here, I would love to select multiple rows just as in mobile application:
- an event initiate the selection mode (maybe holding down on a row or clicking an external button)
- from here every click on a row toggle the selection of this row
- clicking a button outside the grid terminate the selection

thank you very much,

I would love to see this as well. I've had to resort to a checkbox column for multi select in the past, and would like to avoid that in the future if possible.
