    I currently am working on a project where we need a dropdownbutton that displays a checklist list where multiple items can be selected/checked before the list closes.

    I know that several other Kendo React components have an auto-close flag or similar feature, but so far I have been unable to prevent the DropDownButton component from auto-closing whenever one of the items in the dropdown is selected.

    Is there some way (either some existing parameter or known workaround) to prevent the close event from happening "onItemClick" for the DropDownButton as I only want it to happen "onBlur"?

    Hello, Andrew,

    Currently, this can be done by using the custom rendering and stoping the on click event propagation:

    Please have in mind that this will stop the onItemClick event as well, but as we are using custom renders, we can execute the same logic on the onClick that we use to prevent the propagation.
