columns.selectable Boolean (default: false)

If set to true the grid will render a select column with checkboxes in each cell, thus enabling multi-row selection. The header checkbox allows users to select/deselect all the rows on the current page.

Note: The checkbox column selection functionality has two limitations:

  • It is not integrated with the keyboard navigation
  • It is not integrated with the currently existing select functionality of the grid which is enabled via the selectable option. They are mutually exclusive and we recommend using only one of the approaches for enabling selection.

Example - disable sorting

<div id="grid"></div>
<script>
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
  columns: [
    { selectable: true },
    { field: "name" }
  ],
  dataSource: [ { name: "Jane Doe" }, { name: "John Doe" } ]
});
</script>
