    I have a case when I want to have different behavior for clicking when user have clicked with control key pressed. Unfortunately I have no information on data which is passed to 'change' handler. Is there a way to obtain this information and have condition in logic depending if ctrl key is pressed or not?

    Hi Marcin,

    To achieve the desired behavior, handle the click event with jQuery.
    For example:

    $("#grid").on("click", "tbody > tr", function(e){
      var row = $("tr");
      var rowIndex = row[0].rowIndex;
      var ctrlKey = e.ctrlKey;
        alert("Clicked Row with ID: " + rowIndex + " and the Ctrl key is pressed");
        alert("Clicked Row with ID: " + rowIndex + " and the Ctrl key is NOT pressed");

    For a runnable example, check my test Dojo:
    I hope this helps.
