    I have a Kendo grid with sorting, filtering and column menu enabled.  Out of the box, there are two clickable actions in each column header:
      *  Clicking the title in the column header sorts the data in that column 
      *  Clicking the chevron column menu icon displays the column menu options
    What I’d like to accomplish - instead of a sort being applied when the title in the column header is clicked is for the column menu options (sort asc, sort desc, columns, filter) to appear.  Essentially, I want the title in each column header to take the place of the chevron icon.  Is this possible?  The main motivation is that some of the columns are just too narrow (ex: 40px)to properly display all the default icons.  Is there some event that can be intercepted to do this?  BTW, I am using the MVC  Html wrappers to setup the grid - if that matters.

    Hello Randy,

    There is not built-in way to achieve this, you can however modify the column header with custom headerTemplate. Here is an example for this / the first `OrderID` column / :
