View Full Version : cell editing in grid with selModel: checkboxmodel

10 Oct 2012, 11:01 AM
I have grid with selModel : CheckboxModel and cellediting plugin.
If I select several items and try editing cell Name, all selected items are deselected, this is normal behavior?
and how can I prevent this?

Ext version tested:

Ext 4.1.1

Test Case:

Ext.create('Ext.data.Store', {
fields:['name', 'email', 'phone'],
{ 'name': 'Lisa', "email":"lisa@simpsons.com", "phone":"555-111-1224" },
{ 'name': 'Bart', "email":"bart@simpsons.com", "phone":"555-222-1234" },
{ 'name': 'Homer', "email":"home@simpsons.com", "phone":"555-222-1244" },
{ 'name': 'Marge', "email":"marge@simpsons.com", "phone":"555-222-1254" }
proxy: {
type: 'memory',
reader: {
type: 'json',
root: 'items'

Ext.create('Ext.grid.Panel', {
title: 'Simpsons',
store: Ext.data.StoreManager.lookup('simpsonsStore'),
columns: [
{ text: 'Name', dataIndex: 'name', editor: { xtype: 'textfield'} },
{ text: 'Email', dataIndex: 'email', flex: 1 },
{ text: 'Phone', dataIndex: 'phone' }
height: 200,
width: 400,
plugins: [{ptype: 'cellediting', clicksToEdit: 1}],
selModel: Ext.create('Ext.selection.CheckboxModel'),
renderTo: Ext.getBody()

In version 4.1.0, 4.0.7 with selModel: Ext.create('Ext.selection.CheckboxModel', { checkOnly: true }), everything works well but without checkOnly: true in 4.1.2, 4.1.1, 4.1.0, 4.0.7 we have unexpected behavior.
even with checkOnly: true in 4.1.2, 4.1.1 we have this issue.
it looks like a bug!

Definitely can reproduce. When the row is edited, the row is selected, and all other rows are deselected.

Hopefully we see a fix soon, seems minor, but I don't have a workaround at the moment.

// edit,

checkOnly : true,
mode: 'multi',
selectByPosition : Ext.emptyFn // workaround; EXTJSIV-7110

Also need a solution for this one. Using 4.1.1

I posted also a message in a similar post, sorry for the multiple posts but this is something that hopefully there is some type of workaround...In a few posting that I have encountered no solution has been suggested and it is causing a few issues.
Using 4.1.1, editable grid, tabbing over editable cells is causing the row to be selected (check box is checked) something that needs to be done only when the user manually clicks on the selection check box.

For 4.2.x

var cellEditing = new Ext.grid.plugin.CellEditing({
clicksToEdit: 2,
* preventSlection {Boolean} Setting to true will prevent selection of current record
preventSelection: true

Ext.define('Override.Ext.selection.RowModel', {
selectByPosition: function(position) {

var context = new Ext.grid.CellContext(this.view),
plugin = this.view.editingPlugin;

context.setPosition(position.row, position.column);
if(!plugin || (plugin.ptype == 'cellediting' && !plugin.preventSelection)){
