set_selection(items, ignore_missing=False)[source]

If ignore_missing is True, items that are not available in the selection provider are silently ignored. If it is False (default), an ValueError should be raised.

  • -- list (items) – List of items to be selected.

  • -- bool (ignore_missing) – If False (default), the provider raises an exception if any of the items in items is not available to be selected. Otherwise, missing elements are silently ignored, and the rest is selected.
