     To select more than one item from the multiselect dropdown, user must click several times to launch dropdown and select the items individually. So the number of click increases to the respective number of items to be selected. Is there any property to set the drop down fixed and allow user to select more than one item in a single click.

    Please advise even if this can be achieved through any other control.

    Hello Sanjeev,

    I am afraid there is no way to select multiple items with a single opening of the dropdown. An alternative way to select many items, which may be more useful in your scenario would be to use the keyboard - type some characters, the dropdown will open automatically with fewer items, and selection (via the mouse or the arrow keys) will be easier.

    You could also try opening the MultiSelect via its API, if applicable.

    http://docs.kendoui.com/api/web/multiselect#methods-open

    Yet another option is to consider using the TreeView, ListView or Grid, which can display items without hiding them.

    We too are looking to this functionality.
    Will kendo implement this functionality?
    Is it in your road map or already implemented in new version?
