in IE and FF. If I click a row and then shift-click a row above or below it highlights the first, last, and each row between. If I then shift-click a row between the first and last the selection is truncated to where I jsut clicked, but the selection is truncated to just before where I clicked (the row I just clicked is excluded from the selection) and the row I had first shift-clicked on originally to expand my selection is still selected. As I type this I realize how difficult it is for even me to follow. I'll try and do better...
I click on row 1.
I shift-click on row 8. Rows 1-8 are selected.
I shift-click on row 5. Rows 1-4 are selected. Row 8 is selected.
If it makes any difference row 8 is darker than the other. Kind of a 'most selected' sort of highlighting. Don't know if that factors.
Thanks for the post, this is a CSS bug that we need to address. One of the enhancements to the new grid and selection model is the fact that you can have discontinguous selection.
The darker blue highlight on the 8th row is indicating that particular row currently has focus, not that it is selected. If you press ctrl up/down you'll see how it is moving the focused row. You can also then press ctrl/shift/spacebar etc to select particular records as you would expect.
Next week's release will indicate the focused row with a color with a starker contrast to the selection color.

Right on. Thx for the reply. I like the idea of a 'most selected' or focused row. Adobe Lightroom's picture preview runner has a 'most selected' view that makes it handy to know when you're applying attributes to multiple elements where those attributes are being copied from.
