class Fl_Multi_Browser

Class Hierarchy

Include Files


The Fl_Multi_Browser class is a subclass of Fl_Browser which lets the user select any set of the lines. The user interface is Macintosh style: clicking an item turns off all the others and selects that one, dragging selects all the items the mouse moves over, and shift + click toggles the items. This is different then how forms did it. Normally the callback is done when the user releases the mouse, but you can change this with when().

See Fl_Browser for methods to add and remove lines from the browser.
