Use

Some functions in the list are only available when you indicate to which row you want to apply the function. To do this, you select the row.

Example

To be able to edit a row in an editable list, you must select the row beforehand.

You cannot select rows in all lists. A pushbutton at the start of a row indicates that the row can be selected.

Note

If a row cannot be selected, the pushbutton is not visible.

If the pushbuttons are displayed, the list can provide various options for selection:

      You can select one specific row.

      You can select multiple rows. The first row that you select is highlighted differently.

      You can select multiple rows. All rows are highlighted in the same way.

Note

You can also disallow selection for specific rows in your list.

Procedure

Selecting Specific Rows
