Avoid initial SELECT event when entering a table

I want to avoid that the SELECT event is fired when the system switches to a table.

The user should see the table and by selecting a row this table shall disappear and a new detail table shall appear.

Now, if the table is displayed the first row is selected by the system an passed along the SELECT event. Therefore, the detail table appears immediately.

I do not want to introduce an explicit "go to detail" button as this would involve more mouse clicks.

Any ideas how to avoid the initial selection of the first row or the initial SELECT event firing?

    This can be done by using a guard condition between the select and the event, the select event should also store a value in a data store, each subsequent select will increase the value by one, the guard condition checks that the value is greater than 1 or 0 depending on what initial value you gave to the data store.
