There are scenarios in which you might be required to display a large number of grid columns on limited screen space, and making a small subset of them static when scrolling the rest horizontally to bring them in the viewable area. The concept of frozen columns is well known from MS Excel, and many users would like to utilize it in a web environment too.

The Telerik ASP.NET Grid component for MVC supports static/frozen columns by a single configuration setting. Simply set the Locked boolean setting of the corresponding column to true, and this will bring the column in the locked columns group positioned on the left in the grid. Here the locked columns are Order ID and Ship Name, while the rest of the columns can be scrolled horizontally.
