Object Type Path to UseIndicatorForSelection


When the ColumnViewOptionsSelection.MultiSelect option is set to true row multiple selection mode is enabled. By default the UseIndicatorForSelection property is set to true and rows can be selected via the row indicator (an end-user can drag with the mouse along the indicator to select a range of records or click a specific row's indicator cell while holding down the CTRL key to toggle only this row's selection state).

If the UseIndicatorForSelection property is set to false rows cannot be selected via the indicator. See the End-User Capabilities: Selecting Rows/Cards topic for information on how records can be selected by end-users.
