URGENT!! Check Box and Images problems

Hi guys,

I have some questions regarding checkboxes and images in the grid.

1. I have a check boxes in my grid each and every row in column 3.
my problem is when i click on check box only i want do some action.
if i click on the cell just i want to highlight the row.
(But now when i click on checkbox or in the cell my action is happends. i want to stop this action when i clicked on cell only)

2. In this same column i am displaying checkboxes and images,
based on some other column values i am selecting the checkbox and disabled. When i checked the checkbox and disabled i am not able get the colors of images its coming in black and white color what is the reason.

MyCheckbox = AW.Templates.Checkbox.subclass();
MyCheckbox.create = function() {
var abc = this.prototype;
abc.setContent("box/text", "");

abc.setClass("disabled", function() {
if (this.$1 != null) {
if (this.$owner.getCellText(15, this.$1) != "null") {
return "control";
return "";

abc.setEvent("onclick", function(event){
if (this.$1 != null) {
if (this.$owner.getCellText(15, this.$1) == "null") {
this.setControlProperty("value", "true");
this.setClass("disabled", "control");
acknowledge(this.$owner.getCellText(0, this.$1))

try {

obj.setCellTemplate(new MyCheckbox,3);

3. I have some images as a links in column 13 (i.e. note icon)
When i clicked on image i want open one popup with some data, this is working fine i had done. But the problem is when i clicked on image that row is selecting i want to stop the selection of row when i clicked on images.
This is code which i am using.

var cell = new AW.Templates.Image;
var image = cell.getContent("box/image","");
image.setAttribute("target", "_new");
image.setAttribute("href", "#");
image.setEvent("onclick", function(event){


4. I am getting extra column in the last in grid how to remove it.

You should remove 'onclick' event handler from the template element and put it to checkbox (marker element) -

obj.setEvent("onclick", "")
obj.getContent("box/marker", function(event){


aw-disabled-control style affects all elements of the control, including text and images. If this is not what you want - you should make your own style which affects only checkbox, see /source/styles/common/checkbox.css


You should stop event bubbling/event propagation after you had processed the event
