    I have been using the column menu to filter/choose columns to display in my grid and have been greatly pleased with the results.  However, I would like to add a second custom menu item to the column menu that has the functionality of the column menu, but the choices are determined differently...


    so say my columns are human names, Aaron, Andrew, Dave, Dorothy, Evan, Eric.  Currently in the "columns" section of the menu, I can select which of those 6 I would like to display.  Is it possible to add a second menu item that will contain choices 'A', 'D', and 'E' as checkboxes and will display those columns starting with the respective letter? 

    Hopefully that was clear enough.  Thanks for the help!

    Hello Chris,

    The behavior is not supported by the column menu out of the box. If you would like to manually implement it and add the custom menu item, you could use the columnMenuInit event of the Grid, in which you could access the menu container.
