If the TreeListOptionsSelection.MultiSelect option is enabled, an end-user can select multiple nodes. At run-time, nodes can be selected using the mouse operations and keyboard shortcuts listed in the Selecting Nodes topic. By default, the selection is made by nodes. It means that when an end-user clicks a cell in a node, the whole node is selected, regardless of the exact cell clicked. It is also possible to make selection by cell. To enable this mode, set the MultiSelectMode property to CellSelect. In this mode, with a click, an end-user selects the exact cells, while the whole node remains unselected.
