How to disable the row selection while clicking on the checkbox column in WPF DataGrid (SfDataGrid)?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfDataGrid |
.NET Framework: 4.5

A row will be selected by default when clicking any column in WPF DataGrid (SfDataGrid). You can disable the selection when clicking checkbox column by overriding the ProcessPointerPressed method in GridSelectionController.

Refer to the following code example to disable selection when clicking GridCheckboxColumn.

this.AssociatedObject.SelectionController = new CustomGridSelectionController(this.AssociatedObject);
public class CustomGridSelectionController : GridSelectionController
     public CustomGridSelectionController(SfDataGrid dataGrid) : base(dataGrid)
     protected override void ProcessPointerPressed(MouseButtonEventArgs args, RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex)
         var columnIndex = this.DataGrid.ResolveToGridVisibleColumnIndex(rowColumnIndex.ColumnIndex);
         var column = this.DataGrid.Columns[columnIndex];
         if (column is GridCheckBoxColumn)
         base.ProcessPointerPressed(args, rowColumnIndex);
