@lantzgould Thanks, but I’m not sure that quite does it because it’s only selecting the text, not the RG cells and the data those cells hold (each word of text also has other corresponding fields like a start and end time). I also want to highlight those cells.
Anything else you’d suggest or am I incorrect about my understanding of that plugin? Thank you
As you mentioned earlier, the Select RG Cells by Dragging plugin’s functional is pretty close to required.
This plugin allows you to implement repeating group cell selection by dragging over cells.
You will be able to choose an element within your repeating group cell that you would like to make selectable, this means when the selector square is drawn over its position it will become selected. On your chosen element you should add the exact ID from the ‘DragSelect’ element’s field, followed by (dynamic data) the Current cell’s index.
For designing UI when items are selected refer to the page’s state, ‘Selected Cells contains Current cell’s index’. Although the plugin element itself does provide a list of selected cells, we refer to the page’s state to allow for modifying the list with other interfaces.
The function of selecting multiple cells is what I need, however, as you can see from my video, these cells are unlikely to be easily selectable with a square/rectangle shape selector as they’re words and that would be tough to select say the 6th word in on a sentence/line and the 1st word from the next line down. You’d end up selecting a bunch of other irrelevant cells/words.
That’s why a drag / highlighting type approach is what I’m looking for vs. a rectangle area selector.
Please note that the mentioned Select RG Cells by Dragging plugin allow you to select elements by highlighting an area and by clicking on the elements. So, it is convenient for you. However, you can check the Demo Page of the plugin to discover it’s functional.
I’m afraid, mentioned functionality, from the Full Calendar, can’t be implemented into the Select RG Cells by Dragging plugin, because both of them are using different libraries.
As I understand, you are trying to find the solution for your use case in other our plugins, but it is impossible, unfortunately, to take the piece of requested functionality from some product and use it separately as per your request.
The only recommendation I can make is to use the Select RG Cells by Dragging plugin. Let us please investigate carefully this plugin to make sure it can fit all your needs.
We have investigated your question repeatedly and based on the requirements, the Select RG Cells by Dragging plugin is match your needs.
This plugin allows you to implement repeating group cell selection by dragging over cells or by clicking on them.
