    Currently, I'm implementing a DataGrid with the SelectionMode set to Multiple and I noticed that the way you select multiple rows is to just click on each one. This is not really a problem when you only need to select a few rows but when selecting 10 or 20 rows this can become time-consuming. Is there a way I can change the selection method to be closer to the traditional Windows method of multiple selection? Like using ctrl to select rows individually and shift to select a large group. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi Gregory,

    With its current implementation the DataGrid control does not provide an extended selection functionality and currently I could not suggest you any suitable workaround that will work as expected in all scenarios. I have noticed that you have logged this as a feature request in the public repository. If you are interested in working on the implementation of the feature we can continue our discussion there.

    I have updated your Telerik points for bringing this to our attention.
