Is there another way to get the multiselect to stay open other then having autoClose set to false?

I would like it to stay open only while the user is pressing ctrl, so that they could select multiple items and when they release the ctrl key to would close the multiselect, or if they only want to select one they would not have press ctrl and it would close right after they have selected an item.

Hello,

Here's a dojo example, which shows how the described behavior can be achieved with jQuery and the MultiSelect's close API method.

I had a code similar to that the issue I was getting was that when you typed in some text to filter the items even with holding ctrl it was still closing, and that issue also happens with the dojo you have posted.

Hello,

With the following modification to the click handler attachment selecting items while holding down Ctrl after filtering does not close the dropdown:
$( ".k-list-scroller" ).delegate( ".k-item", "click", function(evt) {
      if (evt.ctrlKey) {
        console.log('Ctrl down');
        isCtrlClick = true;
      }
});

Updated dojo example.
