Perform cell selection and get selected cells information in JavaScript Pivot Grid control

To select any cell or row using mouse or arrow keys, set the gridSettings.allowSelection property to true. The selected cells will be highlighted.

Selection mode

The Pivot Table control supports the following four types of selection modes, which can be set by using the gridSettings.selectionSettings.mode property:

  • Row: The Row value is set by default, and allows you to select only rows.
  • Column: Allows you to select only columns.
  • Cell: Allows you to select only cells.
  • Both: Allows you to select rows and columns at the same time.

Selection type

It supports two types of selection that can be set by the property gridSettings.selectionSettings.type. They are,

  • Single: The Single value is set by default, and it only allows selection of a single row or a column or a cell.
  • Multiple: Allows you to select multiple rows or cells. To perform the multi-selection, press and hold CTRL key and click the desired rows or columns or cells. To select range of rows or cells, press and hold the SHIFT key and click the rows or columns or cells.

Event

The event cellSelected fires on every cell/row/column on selected/deselected operations and it provides the selected cells information with its corresponding column and row headers.
