Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist

Mouse-Based Browse Selection








In a collection that uses browse selection, when BSelect is released in a selectable element, that element is selected, and any other selection in the collection is deselected. As BSelect is dragged through selectable elements, each element under the pointer is selected, and the previously selected element is deselected. The selection remains on the element where BSelect is released, and the location cursor is moved there.  

Browse selection is used to select a single element. It also allows the user to browse through the collection by dragging BSelect. See "Mouse-Based Multiple Selection".
