    I have a Kendo Grid on my page and I have a few columns that are 'filterable' and 'multiselect' checkbox lists.


    The top select option is "Select All" which selects all options, however this "Select All" option goes away once you search for anything.


    What I need:

    I need the "Select All" checkbox to remain after searching

    I need the "Select All" checkbox to only select items that are shown. IE: I search for "W" and click 'select all' and only those items with "W" get selected.

    Hello Tom,

    The described behavior is by design, because there is no straightforward way to maintain the desired functionality. For example, if after some filtering, there are 5 items remaining in the list, and "Select All" is checked, there will be 5 selected items, and the Select All box will be checked. But if in this moment the user deletes the filter, visually he will get the "Select all" box checked, the 5 items still selected, but all other items will not be selected.

    You can check out the more detailed answer in the support thread for the same request.
