Parent-Child Checkbox Propagation

Feature Request

Currently, KendoReact TreeList doesn't offer a built-in way to achieve selection behavior where selecting a parent node automatically selects all its children, and vice versa (deselecting all children deselects the parent). This feature would be highly beneficial for use cases involving hierarchical data structures where managing parent-child selection is crucial.


Introduce a new option for the selectable prop, potentially named propagateSelection or recursiveSelection (similar to applyCheckIndeterminate provided in the TreeView component ). When set to true, it activates the desired behavior where selecting a parent selects all children, and deselecting all children deselects the parent.
