Ability to have multi-selection highlights in Data Grids, Button Bars, Menus etc

I use Data Grids heavily, and often use them to show bulk actions, where multiple rows can be selected, e.g. with a lefthand checkbox.
However, in the widget’s properties, only a single row can be set as selected. It would be beneficial being able to set multiple rows as selected.

A similar thing applies to Button Bars and Menus, where it would be nice to be able to “highlight” multiple buttons or menu items.


Hi @Andreas_Ibsen and thanks for sharing your need today.

I’ve just added your vote for this feature request so that we can talk about it more.

In the meantime, here’s a workaround that might be useful: How to Simulate Multiple Selection.

Any questions, we’re here! :slight_smile:

I have needed this previously too. I use the semi transparent workaround detailed in the link but it is fiddly.

It would be helpful to be able to control the selected highlight colour too.
