Hi there,

is it possible to set a (multi) selection based on some text or regex easily in a filled NatTable?

If yes - how can I achieve that?

Best regards,
Markus

Do you want to select or to highlight those rows?

If you really want to select them, no.
If you want to highlight them, yes.

Hi Dirk,

I really want to select them in order to perform an action with them - like open or delete - in an automated UI test...

As NatTable itself does not provide this feature, I will perform the search on my underlying data model to resolve the corresponding data objects or there indices and set the selection with those results.

Thanks for your quick reply
Markus

well searching can also be done via the SearchAction ... but that actually does not perform a multi selection

hmm... maybe the term "search" has been a little bit misleading...

Based on a filled NatTable - not providing a NatTable search dialog - I want to

1. select a single row that contains a text or matches a regex - uniqueness has to be guaranteed somehow; otherwise the UI test should fail. This unique selection will be processed in the upcoming test steps.
2. select e.g. 3 rows matching a text or matching a regex. It has do be guaranteed somehow, that exactly the desired 3 rows are selected. These 3 rows will be deleted in order to test proper deletion functionality in our application.

Understand. The logic to find a cell based on some input is implemented inside the SearchDialog, so you can not reuse it for your cases. You will need to implement that yourself. Just keep in mind that rows and columns could be hidden or transformed so you could have findings in the underlying data collection which is not available in the SelectionLayer.
