jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDataTable is used for reading and displaying the data from the HTML Table. This is also used to display data from various data sources like XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The selectionMode property is used to set or get the specified selection mode.

Its possible values are shown below:

  • “multipleRows”
  • “singleRow”
  • “custom”

In the “custom” mode, rows could be selected/unselected only through the API.

Syntax:

For setting the selectionMode property:

$('#dataTable').jqxDataTable({selectionMode: "singleRow" });  

For getting the enableBrowserSelection property.

var selectionMode = $('#dataTable').jqxDataTable('selectionMode');
