    I am caught in a no-man's-land: company wants to use HTML5 widgets for data-entry because HTML5 is "cutting edge" but the data-entry requirements are quite extensive, so that "mobile-first" UI metaphors are often not suitable. What we really need is "tablet first". For example, we have to track things like all of the states where a certain entity is licensed to practice, or all of the techniques in which a certain provider has been trained, and there could be dozens of possible values to display. Scrolling is not always the optimal UI solution. On the desktop, we have a "multi-checkbox-list" pane with several columns of values (example below). It is not unusual that at least 50% of the boxes are checked for a given entity.  Is there a kendo widget that could be programmed to have this multi-column checklist behavior? With such a widget we could take advantage of real-estate on tablets in horizontal orientation.

    Hello Tim,

    please check the twitter bootstrap integration demo - If I understand your case correctly, the listview widget behavior is what you are looking for.
