Thanks so much - very glad I can now use the official session_state API with the streamlit-aggrid component!

An observation: when I associate widgets (e.g. radio, selectbox, multiselect) with session_state by adding a key, the user input is preserved but this is not reflected visually. I notice this in my multi-page app: if I navigate away from a ‘page’ containing the above widgets, and then return to it, the pre-selected input is not shown in the widget. It would be ideal if the session-state values are automatically saved as the "preselected option on first render’ for these widgets.

Was this a conscious design choice? Currently I work around this limitation by initialising the variables in session state upfront, and calling them as the index or default parameter of these widgets, but I think it would be more elegant if I could use the key functionality :slight_smile:
