    Hi,

    I have a little problem.
    When I select an item and click the "expand" arrow of an other panel item, the previous item stays selected.
    This is OK so far.

    But - and here comes my problem - if the user "misses" the arrow and click the header instead, the selected item is lost (unselected).
    The rest works as expected - so clicking the header expands / collapses the panel - like a click on the arrow.

    Is it possible to expand the "arrow functionality" (expand collapse without "deselecting") to the whole header?
    By the way - I don't even need the arrows - most users hate to "fiddle" with these little parts - they just click the header.

    Hi Manfred,

    I will give my answers inline the quotes from your post:

    "if the user "misses" the arrow and click the header instead, the selected item is lost (unselected)."
    - Yes, and the new item is selected (this is the regular behavior).

    "Is it possible to expand the "arrow functionality" (expand collapse without "deselecting") to the whole header?"
    - You say, that selecting/deselecting items is functionality that you use, so if the "selection functionality" is removed from the header, how would you select items (the headers will only expand/collapse items)? I guess this explain, why it's not exactly possible to do so.

    "By the way - I don't even need the arrows - most users hate to "fiddle" with these little parts - they just click the header."
    - Well, this was added because big part of our clients requested it as a feature.

    Hope this is helpful for you!
