[GH #9925] Can't select the row if all the columns are freezed

Hello. I have a weird case and I would need help. I observed that the select checkbox is not selectable if all the columns are locked. what can I do to make them selectable again?


I discovered that also if I’ll comment in your example this part it will have the same problem:

Hi @dezsirazvan

What do you mean by writing

if all the columns are locked

do you mean the fixedColumnsLeft or readOnly? If so readOnly has to stop the selection of a checkbox.

I mean fixedColumnsStart: x where x is equal with the total number of columns

I have the same problem also with the fixedColumnsLeft: totalNumberOfColumns

I saw now that they become readOnly when are included in fixedColumnsLeft. what options do I have to make that columns selectable? I tried readOnly: false but didn’t change nothing

I see what you mean, @dezsirazvan

I replicated the issue using this demo https://jsfiddle.net/zfgw30m1/
And it seems that the number of fixed columns equally requires more clicks than just one. For example, in this demo there are some checkboxes that get checked after 2 clicks, and some of them need 6 clicks. I got this result testing the demo on Chrome 105 on macOS Monterey. Does it work the same for you?

yes, exactly. thanks for the example

That’s an interesting issue. Let me investigate ot a bit more. I’ll get back after I finish the investigation.

perfect, thank you

hey @aleksandra_budnik. do you have any news about this?

I just reported the issue, @dezsirazvan at https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/9925

It seems to boil down to a double-click instead of a single click. It is not a regression, so downgrading the version won’t help. I tried to find a workaround but did not succeed. However, I will surely notify you as soon as we fix this issue.

get it, thanks.
