React Grid Selection

    The Ignite UI for React Data Table / Data Grid supports single or multiple row and cell selection.

    React Grid Selection Example

    Overview

    Selection in the React data grid is enabled on a row and cell level and can be configured by using the selectionMode option of the React grid. This property takes five different options, listed below:

    • None: Selection is not enabled.
    • SingleCell: Selection of a single cell is enabled.
    • SingleRow: Selection of a single row is enabled.
    • MultipleCell: Selection of multiple cells is enabled.
    • MultipleRow: Selection of multiple rows is enabled.
    • RangeCell: Selection of a range of multiple cells by clicking and dragging is enabled.

    selectionBehavior defaults to ModifierBased, where only one row or cell is selected at a time and modifier keys (CTRL) are required to multi-select items. selectionBehavior set to Toggle will allow multiple rows or cells to be selected on single click only.

    MultipleRow includes the following functionality:

    • Click and drag to select rows
    • Shift and click to select multiple rows.
    • Shift and press the up/down arrow keys to select multiple rows.

    Pressing the space bar toggles selection of active row via MultipleRow or SingleRow.
