Select multiple object with SHIFT

On a multi-selection datagrid, it is possible to select multiple objects while holding the ‘CTRL'-button, but it looks like Mendix still does not support selecting multiple objects while holding the ‘SHIFT'-button to select the objects in between your selection as well (common in many environments). Can anybody explain why this is or better, does anybody has a proper solution for this business requirement?

I don’t think there are any technical reason that this feature hasn’t been implemented in the data grid.

A few years back, I did create a widget with a colleague to add some keyboard features to the data grid. It probably still works but I can’t say for sure. If not, at least it might give you or someone else a starting point.

Here’s the Github:
