When using GridClientSelectColumn, ClientSettings.Selecting.AllowRowSelect must be set to "True". In this case, if user need to check on multiple checkboxes but accidentally clicking outside of a checkbox, then all checked checkboxes on other rows will be checked off. This is annoying. Is there a way to avoid this when using GridClientSelectColumn?

Hi Sheng,

In addition to enabling the Row selection, to allow the users to select one or more items, the AllowMultiRowSelection property has to be set to True. This will enable selection, which can be done simply by clicking on a Row.

If you add a GridClientSelectColumn to RadGrid, you will still be able to select the Rows by clicking on them. To limit selecting rows only by checkboxes, you can set the UseClientSelectColumnOnly property to True.

This way, the user will be able to select multiple rows, but only using the GridClientSelectColumn

<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AllowMultiRowSelection="true">
    <ClientSettings>
        <Selecting AllowRowSelect="true" UseClientSelectColumnOnly="true" />
    </ClientSettings>
</telerik:RadGrid>

Give this a try and let us know if you have any difficulties.

Thank you Attila! Why didn't I find the simple solution? I created a Template column to do the same job. That's silly.
