Selection

By default, the selection functionality of the Telerik UI Grid for ASP.NET Core is disabled.

Getting Started

To control the selection in the Grid, use the Selectable property.

@(Html.Kendo().Grid<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
    .Name("rowSelection")
    .Selectable(selectable => selectable
        .Mode(GridSelectionMode.Multiple))
    ...

Select Modes

The Grid supports the following select modes:

You can set the select mode to Multiple or Single. Additionally, the Grid provides the Row and Cell select types which allow multiple or single selection of rows or cells.

@(Html.Kendo().Grid<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
    .Name("cellSelection")
    .Selectable(selectable => selectable
        .Mode(GridSelectionMode.Multiple)
        .Type(GridSelectionType.Cell))
    ...

Persisting the Selection

The Grid also provides a built-in functionality for persisting the selection through the PersistSelection property and its setting it to true. You also need to configure the ID field in the schema of the DataSource. For a runnable example, refer to the demo on persisting the state of the Grid.

    .PersistSelection(true)
    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
        .Ajax()
        .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.OrderID))
