I am using p-table along with p-checkbox. I want to be able to highlight the clicked row (or the row content) without checking the checkbox. The Checkbox should be checked on clicking the checkbox itself, not the row. I tried using [pSelectableRow] but it also checks the checkbox in addition to highlighting it.

Code: Select all

<p-table [columns]="cols" [value]="brands" [(selection)]="selected" dataKey="vin">
    <ng-template pTemplate="header" let-columns>
        <tr>
            <th style="width: 3em">
                <p-tableHeaderCheckbox></p-tableHeaderCheckbox>
            </th>
            <th *ngFor="let col of columns">
                {{col.header}}
            </th>
        </tr>
    </ng-template>
    <ng-template pTemplate="body" let-rowData let-columns="columns">
        <tr [pSelectableRow]="rowData">
            <td>
                <p-tableCheckbox [value]="rowData"></p-tableCheckbox>
            </td>
            <td *ngFor="let col of columns">
                {{rowData[col.field]}}
            </td>
        </tr>
    </ng-template>
</p-table>
What should I do to only highlight the clicked row, not check the checkbox? I have created a Stackblitz sample.

I was able to achieve this by maintaining a variable highlight that gets the clicked row value and assigning the highlight class only to rows where this value is equal to that of the clicked row.

Code: Select all

<ng-template pTemplate="body" let-rowData let-columns="columns">
        <tr class="some-class"  [class.ui-state-highlight]="rowData === highlighted">
            <td>
                <p-tableCheckbox [value]="rowData"></p-tableCheckbox>
            </td>
            <td *ngFor="let col of columns">
            
                <a (click)="highlighted = rowData"> {{rowData[col.field]}}</a>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </ng-template>
