    Is it possible to configure the Treeview checkboxes so that when a node's children are all deselected, the node is not deselected also? I need the CheckChildren functionality turned on so that children are automatically selected when their parent is. But I don't want the parent removed from the selection when its children are unchecked.

    To illustrate I have set up a jsbin . I'd like to be able to select nodes a, b1 and b2. However b2 only shows checked when any of c1, c2 and c3 are checked. I can use CheckChildren(false) to allow selection of b1 and b2 individually, but I have much more data than this example so manually checking all the nodes would become too much for the user.

    Here is how I am currently placing the treeview on the page (Model.Items is a list of TreeViewItemModel instances):

    @Html.Kendo().TreeView().Name("treeview").BindTo(Model.Items).ExpandAll(true).Checkboxes(c => c

    Any thoughts?

    Hello Bill,

    I am afraid this is not supported. If you do not want the children to be checked/unchecked automatically you have to disable the CheckChildren option. Since you cannot disable only one of the options you can disable CheckChildren and implement the checking logic manually.
