Functionality

This code demonstrates how to select multiple rows in a Grid. The code will work no matter how many columns. The object of this code is to allow the user to use the SHIFT+RCLICK or CTRL+RCLICK key to select multiple rows just like a spreadsheet program.

Example

Paste this code into a test view to test it and see how it works. Once compiled, you will see a narrow column on the left that acts as a margin. Clicking this gray cell will highlight the row. Using SHIFT or CTRL and clicking another gray cell will select multiple rows.

  Object oGrid1 is a Grid
    Set Location to 7 26
    Set Size to 116 207
    Set Line_Width to 4 0
    Set Form_Width    0 to 8
    Set Header_Label  0 to ""
    Set Form_Width    1 to 60
    Set Header_Label  1 to "Column 1"
    Set Form_Width    2 to 60       
    Set Header_Label  2 to "Column 2"
    Set Form_Width    3 to 60       
    Set Header_Label  3 to "Column 3"
