    You should handle this event in your feeder class. When the end user chooses a line in the table, this is the event (or for the user, also known as an ‘Action’) that is triggered. In method GET_DATA, your code should react to this event and the HRGRT_NEXT and HRGRT_PREVIOUS events by producing the output to go into the Data Container

    Selection Event = only lead selection produces an FPM event

    Row Count = 0 (This is a standard default setting, that means that 5 rows are shown)

    Selection Mode = Single (This means that the event is triggered only when the end user selects a single row. Indeed the user is only able to select a single row)
