How can I prevent selection for checkbox cells in the Kendo UI Grid for jQuery?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to prevent the cell-selection functionality for a checkbox or any cell.

    <div id="grid"></div>
    <script>
      $(function() {

        var grid = $("#grid").kendoGrid({
          dataSource: {
            data: [{foo:1}, {foo:2}]
          },
          columns: [
            {
              template: '<input type="checkbox" />'
            },
            "foo"
          ],
          selectable: "multiple cell"
        }).on(kendo.support.pointers ? "pointerup" : "mouseup", ".k-grid-content tr > td:first-child", function () {

          grid.selectable.one("select", function(e) {
            e.preventDefault();
          });

        }).data("kendoGrid");
      });
    </script>
