Hi Toby,

Indeed, this behavior is characteristic for Firefox. You can prevent it by using the following CSS rule:

.rgRow,
.rgAltRow
{
      -moz-user-select: -moz-none ;
}

However, note that this will disable also the text selection for RadGrid data rows, which may not be very nice to the users.


Kind regards,

I actually do not want the user to be able to highlight text on multi-select (using the control key). Is there a way to block this in both IE & Firefox?

I find it an odd behavior to have the "word" you happen to click on highlight when you are trying to select a row. (Which happens in IE, or the cell selection as described above in FireFox).

Hi Brian Azzi,

Since browsers still do not support the CSS3 user-select property, you can try using scripting, for example

Great suggestion, thanks! That worked well. As a rule of thumb I don't like "forcing" browser behavior like that though... probably not the best practice... but in this case it was needed, so this was a nice workaround. : )
