Select Features

 0 selected features

Example of using the Select interaction.

Choose between Single-click, Click, Hover and Alt+Click as the event type for selection in the combobox below. When using Single-click or Click you can hold the Shift key to toggle the feature in the selection.

Note: when Single-click is used double-clicks won't select features. This in contrast to Click, where a double-click will both select the feature and zoom the map (because of the DoubleClickZoom interaction). Note that Single-click is less responsive than Click because of the delay it uses to detect double-clicks.

In this example, a listener is registered for the Select interaction's select event in order to update the selection status above.
