Could you explain further?

Does obj.setCellTemplate(new AW.Templates.Checkbox, 0); satisfy?

There is already a selection mode for that...

myGrid.setSelectionMode("multi-row-marker"); myGrid.setSelectionMultiple(true);

It puts a checkbox in the first grid column for every row (if the cell already has a text, the checkbox is preppended to it) and changes the regular row selection behavior so that, in order to select a row, you have to mark its checkbox.

Tried it. Can't see the checkboxes. I'm assuming it's CSS issues, but I can't track it down... If I use:

obj.setSelectorVisible( true );
obj.setSelectorText( function(i){return this.getRowPosition(i)+1} );
obj.setSelectionMode( "multi-row-marker" );
obj.setSelectionMultiple( true );

I can see the number, but not the check box.

I'll add that if I comment out setSelectorText(), I still don't see the checkbox.

It should be enough setting selection mode to "multi-row-marker". By default this call puts CheckedItem template to the first column (not selector column). Here is the complete example -

var obj = new AW.UI.Grid;

    obj.setCellData(function(c, r){return c + "." + r});


    obj.onSelectedRowsChanged = function(arrayOfRowIndices){
        window.status = arrayOfRowIndices;

Ah! I see. I thought the checkbox would end up in the selector column and I kept trying to find it. I also had a:

obj.setCellTemplate(new AW.Templates.Checkbox, 0);

which prevented me from seing the behavior you describe, Alex. Or, at least, confused the issue. Once I commented that out, I saw that a checkbox was added by the obj.setSelectionMode( "multi-row-marker" ) call.

Not to confuse you more but - there are actually two 'checkbox' templates - AW.Templates.Checkbox and AW.Templates.CheckedItem. The first one is used to display Boolean data values in cells, the other one is used for selection. The templates look the same but differ in where the true/false value comes from.
