I am afraid what you are trying to achieve is currently not supported in Kendo UI Mobile, however it sounds good and I will suggest to send this idea as a feature request at our UserVoice page
. This way the community would be able to vote and comment it and if this suggestion turns out to be popular we will consider its implementation for future releases. Thank you in advance.
