Does selecting a component group select the entire component list contained by that group?

    Earlier today I found the following to be true about your main question:

    When the subcomponent is set to selected and not editable

    
    <selected>1</selected>
    <canBeEdited>0</canBeEdited>
    

    then its actual setting will be the same as the parent. So, without any additional logic involved, if I selected a top level component that had 3 subcomponents with the above settings they would all be selected. If I deselect the top level component all child components become deselected. If instead the canBeEdited flag is true for any of the children then the child can be selected/deselected independently of the parent. And I'll state the obvious that if you set the selected flag to false then by default the child will not be selected.
