Hi Team, 

To expand on my title, the default value of the 'selectable' attribute is false. However, by accident I discovered, that even if it is false, if you run the select() function on the grid, its default behavior is "multiple,row".

Is this the expected result in this scenario? Personally I would expect there to be no change as i have not specified a selection strategy?

See example, and comment out the selectable attribute: https://dojo.telerik.com/iyaFajoB

Regards, 

Grant

Hi Grant,

When the select() method is called the k-state-selected class will be applied to the Grid row will be applied regardless of the selectable option because it is an API method. If you would like to prevent selection when selectable is set to false I suggests adding a condition that checks the value of the setting before calling select:


var grid = $("#grid").getKendoGrid();
if (grid.options.selectable) {
    grid.select("tbody tr:first-child"); 
}
 

Check out the dojo below that illustrates the approach:
