I have a uitable that includes a checkboxes in column 1 and string-valued entries in column 2. Some of the entries may be "ghosted", which is faked by prepending HTML tags to change their font color to gray. A corresponding bitvector keeps track of the ghosted rows. Clicking in either column on a ghosted row is ignored, with an immediate return from the CellSelectionCallback routine.
This works OK except for one annoyance: When a ghosted string (column 2 of a ghosted row) is clicked, the blue cell selection highlight remains on after the return from the callback. A subsequent click in column 1 of the same row, will remove it, but that's not a good solution. Can anyone suggest a way to programmatically remove it ("deselect" the clicked cell)?
BTW, I just purchased Yair Altman's excellent book Undocumented Secrets of MATLAB-Java Programming, but this doesn't seem to be a covered topic.

This is covered (briefly) at the bottom of page 169 of my book...
