Since Q3 2012 SP1 release, RadGridView allows the user to select a cell as well as to select a row. By default this functionality is disabled and to turn it on you have to set the SelectionUnit property to Mixed.
In order to select a full row, you must click on it, but not on its cell.
RadGridView provides three selection modes, which allow you to manipulate the type of selection. You can combine them with SelectionUnit - Mixed:
- With Single Selection:
You can select only one unit at a time.
- With Multiple Selection:
You are able to select any cell and any row. Units are added to the selection when they are clicked and get removed when they are clicked again.
- With Extended Selection:
Units are added to the selection only by combining the mouse clicks with the Ctrl or Shift key.
