I am using jQuery UI Selectable plugin so, I want to select one item at a time. But jQuery UI Selectable plugin allows multiple selection by clicking/ dragging / holding CTRL key. Is there any way to prevent multiple selection?

Hii @kartik,

What I did is that I allow multiple selection but when the selection is done, I only keep the first element selected.

<ul id="select">
    <li>Row 1</li>
    <li>Row 2</li>
    <li>Row 3</li>
</ul>

This selects all the selected elements except the first one and deletes the selected status. So at the end, only one element will be selected. event.target corresponds to my ul element.

$('#select').selectable({
    stop:function(event, ui){
        $(event.target).children('.ui-selected').not(':first').removeClass('ui-selected');
    }
});
