Select grid rows based on certain condition

You can select the specific row in the grid based on a certain condition by using the selectRows method in the dataBound event of Grid.

In the below demo, we have selected the grid rows only when EmployeeID column value greater than 3.

import { getValue } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';
import { ColumnDirective, ColumnsDirective, GridComponent, Inject, Page } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids';
import { Grid, RowDataBoundEventArgs, SelectionSettingsModel } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-grids';
import * as React from 'react';
import { data } from './datasource';

export default class App extends React.Component<{}, {}> {
  public selIndex: number[] = [];
  public grid: Grid | null;
  public settings: SelectionSettingsModel = { type: 'Multiple' };
  public rowDataBound(args:RowDataBoundEventArgs):void {
    if (getValue('EmployeeID', as object) > 3) {
      this.selIndex.push(parseInt((args.row as HTMLTableRowElement)
        .getAttribute('aria-rowindex') as string, 0));
  public dataBound():void {
    if (this.grid && this.selIndex.length) {
        this.selIndex = [];
  public render() {
    this.rowDataBound = this.rowDataBound.bind(this);
    this.dataBound = this.dataBound.bind(this);
    return (<div>
      <GridComponent dataSource={data} allowPaging={true} rowDataBound={this.rowDataBound} dataBound={this.dataBound} selectionSettings={this.settings} height={280} ref={g => this.grid = g}>
          <ColumnDirective field='OrderID' headerText='Order ID' width='120' textAlign='Right'/>
          <ColumnDirective field='CustomerID' headerText='Customer ID' width='150'/>
          <ColumnDirective field='EmployeeID' headerText='Employee ID' width='150' textAlign='Right'/>
          <ColumnDirective field='ShipCity' headerText='Ship City' width='150'/>
