Hi Sachindra,

RadMulticolumnComboBox allows to define the width of the drop down popup through its DropDownWidth, but only if the columns does have set width. I am afraid that currently, the RadMultiColumnComboBox doesn't support horizontal scrolling out of the box.

The following article explains how to set the dropdown width of the widget and how it behaves depending on the columns width settings (RadMulticolumnComboBox is a server-side wrapper of the Kendo UI MulticolumnComboBox  widget): 

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/editors/multicolumncombobox/columns

A possible approach for achieving a similar to the described functionality is to use the client-side load event of the control and set the width of the dropdown using the API of the Kendo widget. Please, note that the approach below will add scrolling only to the items list, but the column headers will remain static (being in a different container)

function OnLoad(sender, args) {
    sender.kendoWidget.list.width(300);
}

In addition, there is already a feature request for this functionality in the Kendo UI Feedback portal, so you might want to vote for it to increase its priority:
