Vaadin Spreadsheet setSelectionRange doesn't seem to work.
I need to preselect a certain range of cells in the spreadsheet as it appears in the webpage.
I tried using setSelectionRange which i believe is used to select a range of cells using API. It does not work. By Debugging I can confirm that it is hitting a ClientRPC for the selection but I have not painted the screen yet. I am creating a spreadsheet, adding it to the layout and setting the selection range. I assume the selection range should be passed thru the client state if the screen is not painted.
Just to prove my understanding i called the same method after the spreadsheet was painted. ie on action of a menu and the spreadsheet immediately selected the range because the spreadsheet was already available and the rpc was active.
Any help is appreciated. Is there a way to preselect the range of cells when you add a spreadsheet to the layout.
You seem to have stumbled on a regression. This should indeed work, but is not. I filed a ticket for this at https://dev.vaadin.com/ticket/18345
