I have a windows based desktop LOB application. In a multi step process a user is requested to select a SINGLE row on a datagrid. My question is? should or shouldnt I use a selection column to indicate which row is selected or not? Note that the row is highlighted when selected.
Pros: 1. Gives an additional indication as to which row has been selected 2. Adds consistency in the system on other datagrids where multiple rows can be selected.
Cons: 1. Uses additional space 2. User may think they are able to select more than one column
