Thanks for the answer, and the enhancement ticket.
I tried to do it with table templating and checkboxes (both the standard checkboxes and the datatable rowcheckboxes), unfortunately I'm so new to both vue and PrimeVue that I couldn't find a simple way to bind the checked state of the checkboxes with the rest of the Datatable.
One day I'll be able to do it, but for the moment I'm still experimenting...
So no, it's not urgent (I'm prototyping and learning at the same time) - and I can wait.
By the way, it's not completely unrelated, but I had some issue with DataTable + Checkboxes + Edit mode - described here : https://github.com/primefaces/primevue/issues/315
. If you have some time to look at it and tell me if it's expected or not. Thanks.
