I think, that new configuration variable called "StickyGridSelection" (yes/no) will come in handy.

This variable will change how record selection in grids will work:

  • sticky (from 5.0.0 version) - when one record is clicked and you click on another record, then both records are selected (no Ctrl/Shift is used)
  • non-sticky (before 5.0.0 version) - when one record is clicked and you click on another record, then only second record becomes selected (to select many records at once Ctrl/Shift should be used along with clicking)

  1. this is a good feature which is part of best actual interfaces.

  2. I also think, that it's good, since Dbl-Clicking on any record will result
    in 1 record being edited instead of all selected, as for now.

  3. yes, this was another little problem !

  4. Hi guys,

    Great! Yes, these sound like very useful enhancements to the current Grids.

    Alex, would you please create a task for this and schedule for the Future,
    but I would probably put this for 5.1.3 if we have time and patch by that
    time so grids in 5.1.x. are better to work with while 5.2.x might get a new
    Grids anyway.



  5. Thanks for finalizing this. Here is the task:

  6. There is an error in the task you've created.

    Dbl-click behaviour and stick selection are not 2 different things, but 1.

    When in non-sticky mode, then dbl-click will unselected all but current
    record and edit it.

    When in sticky mode, then dbl-click will edit all selected records.

    *Also there is no mention about 2 changes in this discussion only one.*

    Please don't change task description as you see fit without getting approval
    from others via associated discussion.
