How to programatically select a cell on the heatmap

I don't mean on cellClick event, I mean when something else externally on the page happens, I want it to call the heatmap to select a specific cell.

Thanks, and also, why is it hard to find information on how to do simple things like this in the documentation? Am I looking in the wrong places when I look through this stuff?

Hi Zachary,

We do not support programmatic cell selection in the HeatMap component. Instead, we only allow cell selection via UI interaction when the "allowSelection" API is enabled.

Meanwhile, in the sample below, the HeatMap component is generated for each Pivot Table component's cell selection. Does this meet your requirements, or do you simply want to select cells in the existing HeatMap component based on any external action on the web page?

I have a Syncfusion Grid module on the page, and depending on which row in the grid is clicked, I need a certain cell in the heatmap to get selected to reflect it. It should give the appearance that they are linked together.

Hi Zachary,

Thank you for the clarification. We have considered your requirement as a feature in the HeatMap component and added it to our features request list.  However, we will include this implementation in any of our upcoming release. Meanwhile, please find the feedback link below to keep track of this feature.
