Checkbox select but not multi select

QuestionsCheckbox select but not multi select
jim varrone asked 2 weeks ago

I am using the code below but here are my problems/questions:

  • I need to be able to select a row by checkbox, but not more than one row. If I turn off multi-select I get no check boxes.
  • Once I select a row by checkbox, how do I query the value of a particular cell in the row to use to sen to another php module?

$grid[“multiselect”] = true;
$grid[“beforeSelectRow”] = “function(rowid, e) { return $(‘input[type=checkbox]’); }”;

P.S. I may be going about this the wrong way. I need to select a row, but since I’m color formatting the rows, I can’t see any indication that I’ve selected a row.So I thought that the checkbox would be an alternative. I’m using this code to color the rows:

$col["column"] = "status";
$col["op"] = "eq";
$col["value"] = "InProcess";
$col["css"] = "'background-color':'yellow', 'color':'black'";
$col_conditions[] = $col;

$col["column"] = "status";
$col["op"] = "eq";
$col["value"] = "VisitReady";
$col["css"] = "'background-color':'lightgreen', 'color':'black'";
$col_conditions[] = $col;

$col["column"] = "status";
$col["op"] = "eq";
$col["value"] = "VisitCompleted";
$col["css"] = "'background-color':'springgreen', 'color':'black'";
$col_conditions[] = $col;

Hi and Happy New Year!

I use something like:
background: repeating-linear-gradient(120deg, #63C384, #63C384 1px, transparent 1px, transparent 2px);

Best regards!

To have a checkbox with one selection at a time, first enable multiselect:true

$grid["multiselect"] = true;
$grid["multiboxonly"] = true; // only allow selection using checkbox (not with row click)

Then you can try following:

$grid["beforeSelectRow"] = "function(rowid, e) { if ( jQuery('#list1').jqGrid('getGridParam','selarrrow') != rowid) jQuery('#list1').jqGrid('resetSelection'); return true; }";


$grid["beforeSelectRow"] = "function(rowid, e) { return $('input[type=checkbox]'); }";

Finally, this $grid will be passed to set_options along with your other grid options.


Now to pass the selected row to another page, e.g. on button click

<button onclick="pass_selected()">Pass</button>
function pass_selected() {
var ids = jQuery('#list1').jqGrid('getGridParam','selarrrow').join(',');'your-page.php?ids='+ids);

Let me know if you have any questions.
