Shift-click to select rectangular block of cells, When using a Grid with the selection mode set to multiple/cell

I'd like to request the functionality to change the multiple selection process of the Kendo UI Grid to be the same as Excel.  For example, the following shows a block of cells selected instead of all of the cells in-between the selected cells from Shift+Clicking:

Thank you!

Hello, Martin,

Thank you for the clarification. In this case I would say that the feature request is to auto-scroll the container when the mouse/finger is close to the top/bottom of it?

Would you like me to rename the feature request to better represent the functionality you are looking for?

Kind Regards,

Yes - dragging the mouse does indeed select a rectangular block.

But this is not usable if the region to be selected is larger than fits on the screen - dragging the mouse while selecting does not scroll.  Using shift-click would be much easier in this scenario - if it worked the same way.

Hello, Martin,

It seems that this functionality is already available when the selection is enabled with multiple cell. Pressing `Shift` is not needed, you can select with just dragging the mouse:

selectable: "multiple cell",

Test this in our online demo - the second grid here: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/selection

Let me know in case you had something else in mind.
