Mouse-Based Single Selection








In a collection that uses single selection, when BSelect is clicked in a deselected element, the location cursor moves to that element, that element is selected, and any other selection in the collection is deselected.  

Single selection is the simplest selection model, used to select a single element. BSelect, the first mouse button, provides a consistent means of selecting an object within a group using the mouse.
