How to disable a column click from triggering row selection

I have a custom checkbox column made using queryCellInfo and rendering a react component checkbox. This checkbox has separate functionality from selecting a row from the grid. When I have a row selected and click the checkbox (on the same or different row), it clears my selected row. I want to keep the row selected but be able to toggle the checkbox without it clearing the selected row.

Hi Ryan, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We have prepared a sample based on your requirement in which selecting/deselecting is prevented by using rowSelecting and rowDeselecting event as follows. 

export class Default extends SampleBase { 
  load(e) { 
    this.element.onclick = (e) => { 
      this.target = e.target; 
  deselecting(e) { 
    if (this.target.classList.contains('custom')) { 
      this.target = null; 
      e.cancel = true; 
    render() { 
        return (<div className='control-pane'> 
        <div className='control-section'> 
          <GridComponent dataSource={orderDetails} height='350'

Thanks. I didn't do exactly what you did because I needed to pass state to a react component but I got it working.
