In addition to using check boxes to select individual rows, the DevExpress ASP.NET Grid View (ASPxGridView) allows end-users to select rows with a simple mouse click. To enable this selection mode, set the SettingsBehavior.AllowSelectByRowClick property to true. Once set, clicking any row clears the previous selection and selects this row.
To select multiple rows, click the desired rows while holding down the CTRL key. Clicking a row in this manner toggles its selected state and preserves the selection. To select contiguous rows, click the first row you wish to select, hold down the SHIFT key, and click the last row. You can continue to customize selection by clicking individual rows while holding down the CTRL key.
This demo illustrates how multiple rows can be selected via standard row clicks.
