Bring Drag & Drop to Dash with Dashboard Engine. 💫 Learn how at our next webinar!


Hi I’m new to Dash and I was playing around with the Datatable interactivity page from Sorting, Filtering, Selecting, and Paging Natively | Dash for Python Documentation | Plotly.

I’m having an issue with column_selectable. I’m getting a TypeError

“TypeError: Unexpected keyword argument selected_columns
Allowed arguments: active_cell, columns…”

Kinda stuck and came here for help.

Thank you in advance!

Were you able to fix this issue? I’ve been facing this same error as well.

I wasn’t. I just didn’t use. I don’t think it works anymore.

Could you please copy here a minimal and standalone (synthetic data) reproducing the problem? is up to date and the exposed properties should be usable, otherwise it’s a bug.

Hello, I am facing this issue as well. I copied the first example from the URL you have provided, and here is the output of python, is there a way to fix this? :
