Multi-selecting rows using the mouse selection doesn't work for React Kendo Grid

Multi-selecting rows using the mouse selection doesn't work for React Kendo Grid.

With the kendo grid wrapper for React we were able to  multi-select rows using the mouse selection in the grid bounds.

Hello, Carlos,

Thank you for the clarification.

We decided to use this approach mainly because it allows more configurability.

If this is a built-in feature it will listen on specific DOM events, and may not work as expected with other code related to the same events, especially on touch devices.

In general, we decided to make the React components more configurable with less built-in properties, as in our experience with building components with a combination of the React world showed us that many built-in features make the component easy to configure initially, but then as the application grows more complex, it is harder to mix them. 

We are open to any feedback for the components and their features, as the community can show us the best approach to use them.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan!

Thanks for your reply!.

What I really meant was the ability to select rows drawing a selection with the mouse. Like this (this is with the react grid wrapper):

 

Your reply did help with something else we were trying to do.

I understand the React Grid is in an early stage now and you are working hard adding new features, also, that this can be achieved with some effort. My question is that are there any plans to have this feature implemented out-of-the-box?

 

Thanks,

Carlos

Hello, Carlos,

We do have an example with multiple selections in the documentation:

https://www.telerik.com/kendo-react-ui/components/grid/selection/#toc-customizing-the-selection

I also modify it to only have a row selection with the mouse and the keyboard(no-checkboxes):

https://stackblitz.com/edit/react-sjqz8n?file=app/main.js

Please advise if I missed an important detail.

Regards,
Stefan
