I need to programmatically deselect rows in a grid. I have not seen any API method for this. select() will return all rows, and select(<obj>) will select one item.
My issue is that I have 10 out of 50 selected, but now the user has done something and I need one of the 10 deselected (but the rest to remain selected).
I thought I had a brainstorm and that I could use jquery to trigger a CNTRL-CLICK:
var e = jQuery.Event("click");
e.ctrlKey = true;
Where this.gridRow refers the the DOM object which is the row in the grid (i.e. <TR> )which is currently selected. I have verified in FireBug that the value of tthis.gridRow is actually the <TR> row in the kendo Grid, and that it is currently selected. (see screen shot)
See attached screen shot which shows that firebug reporting that the this.grid is indeed a tr, and it has a click handler.
