Data Grid - Selection

Selection allows the user to select and highlight a number of rows that they can then take action on.

Row selection

Row selection can be performed with a simple mouse click, or using the keyboard shortcuts. The grid supports single and multiple row selection.

Single row selection

Single row selection is enable by default with the DataGrid component. To unselect a row, hold the CTRL key and click on it. For the DataGridPro, you need to disable multiple row selection with disableMultipleSelection={true}.

<DataGrid {...data} />

Multiple row selection

To select multiple rows on the DataGridPro component, hold the CTRL key while selecting rows.

<DataGridPro {...data} />

Checkbox selection

To activate checkbox selection set checkboxSelection={true}.

<DataGrid checkboxSelection {...data} />

Disable selection on click

You might have interactive content in the cells and need to disable the selection of the row on click. Use the disableSelectionOnClick prop in this case.

<DataGrid checkboxSelection disableSelectionOnClick {...data} />

Disable selection on certain rows

Use the isRowSelectable prop to indicate if a row can be selected. It's called with a GridRowParams object and should return a boolean value. If not specified, all rows are selectable.

In the demo below only rows with quantity above 50000 can be selected:

<DataGrid
  {...data}
  isRowSelectable={(params) => params.row.quantity > 50000}
  checkboxSelection
/>

Controlled selection

<DataGrid
  checkboxSelection
  onSelectionModelChange={(newSelectionModel) => {
    setSelectionModel(newSelectionModel);
  }}
  selectionModel={selectionModel}
  {...data}
/>

apiRef

The grid exposes a set of methods that enables all of these features using the imperative apiRef.

⚠️ Only use this API when you have no alternative. Always start from the declarative API that the grid exposes.

Signature:
getSelectedRows: () => Map<GridRowId, GridRowData>
Signature:
selectRow: (id: GridRowId, isSelected?: boolean, allowMultiple?: boolean) => void
Signature:
selectRows: (ids: GridRowId[], isSelected?: boolean, deselectOtherRows?: boolean) => void
Signature:
setSelectionModel: (rowIds: GridRowId[]) => void

🚧 Range selection

⚠️ This feature isn't implemented yet. It's coming.

👍 Upvote issue #208 if you want to see it land faster.

With this feature, you will be able to select ranges of cells across the Grid.
