public enum class DataGridSelectionMode
public enum DataGridSelectionMode

Public Enum DataGridSelectionMode


Extended 1

Multiple items in the DataGrid can be selected at the same time.

Single 0

Only one item in the DataGrid can be selected at a time.


The DataGrid.SelectionMode and DataGrid.SelectionUnit properties together determine how users can select items in a DataGrid. For example, if the DataGrid.SelectionMode is Single and the DataGrid.SelectionUnit is DataGridSelectionUnit.Cell, the user can select one cell at a time in the DataGrid.

In Extended mode, select multiple items by holding down the SHIFT key to extend the selection from an anchor point or the CTRL key to individually select additional items.
