    PreventSelection

    When selecting a specific list item, it is highlighted with an active color. preventSelection property is used to prevent this behavior by setting it to True.

    NOTE

    When the click or select action is completed, the highlight is undone automatically even when the property is set to “False”.

    Refer the following code examples.

  • html
  • <div style="width:400px;">
        <ej-listview id="defaultlistbox" showHeader="true" headerTitle="List Items" preventSelection="true">
            <ul>
                <li data-ej-text="Artwork"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Abstract"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="2 Acrylic Mediums"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Creative Acrylic"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Modern Painting"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Canvas Art"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Black white"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Children"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Preschool Crafts"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="School-age Crafts"></li>
            </ul>
        </ej-listview>
    </div>

    PersistSelection

    The persistSelection property is used to highlight the selected item in the ListView component even after touch end happens. By default, the active state is removed once the touch end happens.

    Refer the following code examples.

  • html
  • <div style="width:400px;">
        <ej-listview id="defaultlistbox" showHeader="true" headerTitle="List Items" persistSelection="true">
            <ul>
                <li data-ej-text="Artwork"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Abstract"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="2 Acrylic Mediums"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Creative Acrylic"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Modern Painting"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Canvas Art"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Black white"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Children"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="Preschool Crafts"></li>
                <li data-ej-text="School-age Crafts"></li>
