Hi Sarvana, 
 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
 
We have created a sample ‘Grid with can show checkbox for boolean column  while rending and edit state’. Please find the code example and sample for your reference. 
 
 
 
   <ejs-grid [dataSource]='data' allowPaging='true' [pageSettings]='pageSettings' [editSettings]='editSettings' [toolbar]='toolbar'> 
        <e-columns> 
            <e-column field='OrderID' headerText='Order ID' width='120' textAlign='Right' isPrimaryKey='true' [validationRules]='orderidrules'></e-column> 
            <e-column field='CustomerID' headerText='Customer ID' width='120' [validationRules]='customeridrules'></e-column> 
            <e-column field='Freight' headerText='Freight' width='120' format='C2' textAlign='Right' editType='numericedit' [validationRules]='freightrules'></e-column> 
            
            <e-column field='ShipCountry' headerText='Ship Country' width='150' editType='dropdownedit' [edit]='editparams'></e-column> 
             <e-column field='Verified' editType='booleanedit'  headerText='Fee Status' width=60 type="boolean" displayAsCheckBox='true'></e-column> 
        </e-columns> 
         
    </ejs-grid> 
 
 
 
 
While set editType as ”booleanedit” grid can show the checkbox while edit state . 
 
 
This is not meet your requirement could you please share the more details about your requirement.

        let currentRowObject: any = this.grid.getRowObjectFromUID(args.event.target.closest('tr').getAttribute('data-uid'));  
        let currentRowData: Object = currentRowObject.data;  
     
        let rowIndex: any = args.event.target.closest('td').getAttribute("index");    
        this.grid.setCellValue(currentRowData["OrderID"],"Verified",args.checked);    //save the checkbox changes 
   }  
}

JA James February 1, 2020 09:50 PM UTC

Hello, the solution proposed does not register the field as being changed. So if we are in batch mode, normally when a field is changed it is highlighted green, and then an 'update' button can be activated. However, changing the check box does not cause it to be highlighted green. How do we solve this?


DR Dhivya Rajendran Syncfusion Team February 3, 2020 12:24 PM UTC

Hi James, 

Query:  changing the check box does not cause it to be highlighted green in batch mode, 

We have analyzed your query and prepared sample based on your requirement. In that sample we have used the updateCell method to update the changes in batch edit mode. 
In the updateCell method we have passed the row index , field name and the checkbox state, then the cell will be in before saving state and the update and cancel buttons in the toolbar also enabled. When update button clicked the current checkbox value will be updated in the datasource. We have shared the sample and the documentation for your reference. 
 
Code snippet: 
normal-edit.component.ts       
 
  checkboxChange(args: any) { 
    let currentRowObject: any = this.grid.getRowObjectFromUID(args.event.target.closest('tr').getAttribute('data-uid')); 
    let currentRowData: Object = currentRowObject.data; 
    let rowIndex: any = args.event.target.closest('td').getAttribute("index"); 
    if (this.grid.editSettings.mode === 'Normal') { 
      this.grid.setCellValue(currentRowData["OrderID"], "Verified", args.checked); 
    } else if (this.grid.editSettings.mode === 'Batch') { 
      this.grid.editModule.updateCell(rowIndex, "Verified", args.checked); 
    } 
  } 

normal-edit.html 

<e-column field='Verified' headerText='Fee Status' editType='booleanedit' width=60 type="boolean"> 
               <ng-template #template let-data> 
                    <div> 
                        <ejs-checkbox #checkbox [checked]='data.Verified' (change)='checkboxChange($event)'></ejs-checkbox>  
                    </div> 
                </ng-template> 
             </e-column>

Hi,

Can i select only one checkbox in the grid view in the below example? i mean not single row selection,  i mean only one checkbox should be selected in the grid always.


Thanks,
Dayakar

Hi Dayakar, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Query: Can i select only one checkbox in the grid view in the below example? i mean no single row selection,  i mean only one checkbox should be selected in the grid always. 
 
Before proceeding this, we need know below details then only we can provide the appropriate solution as soon as possible. 

1. Can i select only one checkbox in the grid view Are you want to show only one selected checkbox in Grid view once in a time ? i.e. If we select other checkbox in Grid, are you want deselect the previously selected checkbox in Grid or not ? Explain briefly? 

2. No single row selection, i mean only one checkbox should be selected in the grid always – If we click the checkbox, are you don’t want to select the rows in Grid ? You want to select the checkbox only?  

3. UI representation of your exact requirement? 

4. In your reported sample, we have rendered checkbox and maintained checkbox state based verified field (Boolean field) and its value respectively. So we have modified DB value based on checked state using setCellValue. Now we have rendered checkbox for without field column using columnTemplate and maintained only on checkbox selected case using checkbox change event. its ok for you ? Please confirm to us. 


Please get back to us, if you need any further assistance.

Ans: yes we want to show only one selected checkbox. yes if we select one it should deselect the previously selected checkbox.


2. No single row selection, i mean only one checkbox should be selected in the grid always – If we click the checkbox, are you don’t want to select the rows in Grid ? You want to select the checkbox only?  

Ans:  yes we want to select only the checkbox not the row.

3. UI representation of your exact requirement? 

Ans: look like the example on stackblitz

4. In your reported sample, we have rendered checkbox and maintained checkbox state based verified field (Boolean field) and its value respectively. So we have modified DB value based on checked state using setCellValue. Now we have rendered checkbox for without field column using columnTemplate and maintained only on checkbox selected case using checkbox change event. its ok for you ? Please confirm to us. 


Ans : it is okay for us, but when we select the checkbox it should also update the data source as well.

Hi Dayakar, 
 
Thanks for sharing the details. 
 
Based on the query and provided sample we could see that one of your requirement is to disable row selection on clicking the checkbox. Since you have enabled edit on single row click we suggest you to achieve this requirement by disabling the allowSelection property in the Grid as demonstrated in the below code snippet, 
 
<ejs-grid #grid [dataSource]='data' [allowSelection]='false'></ejs-grid> 
 
And your requirement of having only one checkbox to be checked at a time(uncheck previous checked checkbox and update the value in data source) can be achieved by finding the checkbox field which has ‘true’ value in the data source, changing it to ‘false’ and then calling the Grid’s refreshColumns method. This is demonstrated in the below code snippet, 
 
// Checkbox change event handler 
checkboxChange(args: any) { 
    var verIndex; 
    // Retrieve the index which has previous checked value 
    this.grid.dataSource.forEach((dat, index) => { if (dat["Verified"] === true) { verIndex = index } }); 
    if (verIndex !== undefined) { 
        // Update the checkbox field value for that row and refresh the Grid columns 
        this.grid.dataSource[verIndex]["Verified"] = false; 
        this.grid.refreshColumns(); 
    } 
} 
 
If you have all the records displayed in the Grid without any paging, then instead of directly changing the data source you can use the setCellValue approach(as suggested in our previous response in the forum) to achieve this requirement. But since you have paging in the shared sample, you would have to update the value in the data source and then refresh the Grid in order to make the changes. This is its default behavior. 
 
Note: This will work only for local data since the entire Grid data cannot be accessed when using remote data(as it works on basis of on-demand loading) with paging. 
 
We have prepared a sample based on this for your reference. Please find it below, 
 
 
Let us know if you have any concerns.

Sujith R
