(All that mouse hovering is me trying to click to move the cursor around)
Mouse click events are not propagated to children cells (even if you set the SelectionModes to NONE.)
Children elements of the table to be able to receive and respond to click events.
Yep, there are a few event.stopPropagation() calls in dragEvents.ts. We did this to take over control of selection of cells and to prevent native text selection, which looks weird then we have our own cell selection overlays.
Furthermore, the <EditableText> component we use in editable cells will grab focus on a single click, but we only want to edit on double click.
We obviously need to address the issue the reporter is seeing, but some thought is required.
@toddself out of curiosity, what do you intend to use the mouse event handlers for?
Wow, I wasn't aware of this issue. I just played with it, there's no text/mouse interactions on a (non-header) cell that's being edited -- can't click to move the cursor, can't click+drag to select portions of text... yet, selection by clicking is still possible. Hopefully we can figure out a fix soon
When will this be fixed? And about when will 1.3.0 be out?
@brandonchoe we were planning on fixing it this week, but the assignee needed to take care of a bunch of personal matters. 1.3.0 is coming today without this fix, and I'm hopeful 1.4.0 will address this issue
