    We have several grids with batch editing on one page.

    A user noticed if you select grid rows, then click the Cancel button for canceling edits, the selected rows are cleared.

    Here's an example reproducing this issue:

    If I set the grid to editable: false (or "inline", "incell", or "popup"), Cancel doesn't clear rows.

    If I set the grid to editable: true, the Cancel button clears selected rows.

    Is this expected behavior?

    Hello Joe,

    When the editable property is set to false the Grid does not support editing, thus, clicking on the toolbar Cancel button does not trigger anything underneath. Therefore, the described behavior is expected.

    If you would like to persist the selection of rows upon editing, sorting, paging, etc I suggest setting persistSelection property to true:

    Let me know if you have any questions.
