Support programmatic row selection
At the moment, the selected row is not cleared when the data changes (or we change the page). There is no way to clear the selection in the grid, which would be useful when 1 data from a grid depends on the selection from the parent grid.
Having an API to change the selected row, would help.

Grid needs to have SelectedItems property - containing collection of the dataItems bound to the selected rows.

This is major issue for single select as well. Using the selectionChange event is not ideal - especially since it only provides the index (not even the dataItem selected/unselected).

WTH!!! I cannot fathom that a company like Telerik does that! this is an essential functionality in a grid control.

The function should also be able to be called from inside the selectionChange event without re-firing the event.

selectionChange fires route change --> route change fails, so we want to reset selection to previous value

We are waiting for multiselect feature, too. I've promised my boss that the app we are building will support multiple entries processing so I hope grid multiselect to be available soon.

This is so critical for a grid component. Currently the selection API is so limited it is almost not existent...

Use case: Deep linking/routing which should show a grid result. The grid result should display a specific row as highlighted/active.

Currently, pressing the arrow keys will scroll up and down the grid. It would be good if we could also use the arrow keys to change the selected row

I agree that we need to be able to select a row programmatically.
