        .Fields(field =>
        .StackedHeaderRows(rows =>
            rows.StackedHeaderColumns(Columns =>
            Columns.HeaderText("Unresolved").Column("Backlog,Validated,In Progress").Add();
namespace MVCSampleBrowser
        public partial class KanbanController : Controller
            // GET: /Kanban/
            public ActionResult KanbanFeatures()
                var DataSource = new NorthwindDataContext().Tasks.Take(30).ToList();
                ViewBag.datasource = DataSource;
