Frozen columns


There are apps which require to display grids with large number of columns on limited screen estates, and making a small subset of them static when scrolling the rest horizontally to bring them in the viewable area. The concept of pinned columns is mostly known from MS Excel, and many users would like to utilize it in web context as well.

The Kendo UI grid widget supports static/frozen columns by a single configuration setting. Simply set the locked attribute 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 locked columns are OrderID and ShipName, while the rest of the columns can be scrolled horizontally.
