Set intial mode to box select

I’d like to set the initial mode to be box select rather than zoom, and to stop it resetting back to zoom after selection. It doesn’t look like this is configurable from Dash but maybe I missed it. Anyone have a workaround? I’m willing to fiddle with the javascript, but I’d rather not have to.


bump, my app is entirely based around selecting points, there’s never any reason to zoom or move the chart and having it reset the selected tool every time is extremely annoying.

@jcthomas I have a similar need in my app. Did you find a solution for this?

Nope. I’m still interested. Anyone got a solution?

Hi @jcthomas,
I have posted a solution for this on a similar thread -
