I have a dataTableEx connected to a list and works properly. What I would like to incorporate is the ability to select a row by the row itself and then highlight it accordingly just like the functionality of a checkbox. I will also need to be able to select multiple rows. How would I go about doing this?

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Zach!

HTML/JSF don't really work quite the same way as native GUIs, so you wouldn't normally do this. Instead, you'd select rows by putting a row-selection control (checkbox) on each row.

I agree after several hours of researching and attempting to wrap rows with hidden links or converters etc, I just ended up using a plain old selectBooleanCheckbox instead.

Oh and thenks for the welcome. Been using the site for several years now but finally decided to join
