Can I change which points are selected programmatically?

Hi,

I have a scatter plot that gets its data from a ColumnDataSource. Is there a way to change the selected points with my python program, rather than with a selection tool? I can edit the selected indices of the ColumnDataSource like this:

source.selected[“1d”][“indices”] = selected_dict

``

But that doesn’t change the points on the plot.

Thanks,

We probably need to make .selected a proper Bokeh model. For now, there is no way to detect changes "inside" the .selected dict. So, short term solution: copy .selected, update the copy, and then reassign entire copy as value of .selected at once. The automagic machinery can detect when .selected changes as a whole.

Hi Yanick and Bryan,
could either of you please post a working example? I am trying to do the same thing without success. Specifically, what I am trying to do is to drive a data selection by operating a slider that controls a y-axis value (indicated in the plot by an horizontal line). The selection should comprise all data values below/above that y value. I would like to implement the data selection within the Slider.on_change Python callback.

Conceptually, here is what I have (I am running this with >>bokeh serve …):

Data source and plot

source = ColumnDataSource(…)

figure(…).circle(‘x’, ‘y’, source = source, …)

Callback

def slider_selection(attrname, old, new):

# Should update source.selected and 

# trigger the plot update correspondingly

Slider and its callback

max_slider = Slider(start=min(y), end=max(y), value=max(y), step=0.1, title=“Maximum”)

max_slider.on_change(‘value’, slider_selection)

Thanks a lot for any hints!

Gerardo

Since I arrived here from Google in 2020, I just wanted to mention that this has been fixed in bokeh long ago - you can now simply modify source.selected.indices and bokeh will update the plot correctly.
