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