Selecting cell contents for copying in a table


I’ve got a table with several columns, one of which called “message” has a custom column generator that (depending on the cell contents) might create a TextArea with a lot of text within.

The table has a click listener, as some of the other columns are mapped to events. (I am using the propertyId in the click listener to disable the listener for the “message” column.) This may be the cause for the following problem:

When I try to copy the text area contents in a text editor, then I find it almost impossible to do that. Whenever I try to mark the contents for copying using the mouse, then something happens and the contents are either deselected or a lot more than I want
(say, the whole table) is selected.

Any ideas what I might do to change this?
