I am afraid that such behavior is not supported by the current implementation. The most viable option I can suggest is to sub-class the widget and implement your requirements in the corresponding event handler overrides. This is not a trivial task though, and it implies some familiarity with the Kendo UI codebase.
You can also suggest this behavior (I think it may be useful as a built-in feature, too) in our feedback portal. If this feature is critical for your application, you may also consider getting in touch with our premium services, who can implement it as a custom feature for your project.
