Cell Selection & ALV Table (SALV_WD_TABLE)

Hi Experts,

is it possible to select more than one cell (not row!) in an ALV Table?

I changed the cell editor to cl_salv_wd_uie_input_field and set the whole table editable.

Now I am able to select one cell, but what about multiple selections? In the Java world I found this one: TableSingleMarkableCell

Sounds good - what about ABAP?

And if there is no way with the ALV Table, how I might get the functionality with other components?

Thanks for your help, have a great week!

    We have the same TableSingleMarkableCell in Web Dynpro ABAP:

    It doesn't appear that this special cell variant is exposed via the ALV. Only the standard cell variant appears to work in ALV (CL_SALV_WD_CV_STANDARD), but it should work just fine in a normal table just like in WDJ.

      Hi comunity,

      it is possible to "select" multiple cells if you write your own selection functions. But the algorithm is quiet complex, the usability is bad (because a click on a cell doesn't fire an event, the user needs to press the enter key in my solution) and the STRG or SHIFT-Keys are not used. Instead of the known keyboard shortcuts the user has du work with the function buttons in the table header.

      But perhaps you want to get an impression of how it could be implemented:

      Again thanks for your help,
