    I'm currently working on an app that has a long list of items that I'm putting into the JumpList.  The problem is that as the user scrolls through the data, the "Jump" part of the list disapears off the screen.  The experiance is then you have to scroll, scroll... until you find one of the headings so you can click on it to take you to a different part of the list.

    So my question is, is there a way to anchor the current heading to the top of the screen until the next heading comes to take its place?  This would make using the jump list really nice because you always have a "Jump" control at your fingertips instead of having to hunt for one.

    Hello Scott,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Currently, the feature that you describe is not implemented in the RadJumpList control. However, we think that this would be a nice addition to the control and will log it in our TODO system for implementation. We have updated your Telerik points for the useful hint.

    For now, you can use the IsGroupPickerOpen property to show the groups and let the user pick one. You could expose a UI component which your users could utilize the open the group picker at any given time, even if a group header is not visible at the current scroll position.

    I hope this helps.

    I had this exact same issue.
    I solved it by adding a applicationbar with an option that would set the IsGroupPickerOpen property to display the picker.
