b-selectable is an element which allows single (for now) selection of an item in a list.


The selected attribute indicates which item element is being selected, and can also be used to select an item programmatically.

<b-selectable selected="0">
    <div>Item 1</div>
    <div>Item 2</div>
    <div>Item 3</div>

The target attribute defines a selector used to query nodes to be used for selectable items.

<b-selectable target="li">
        <li>Item 1</li>
        <li>Item 2</li>
        <li>Item 3</li>

Whenever the selected item changes, a b-selected event will be fired. The user can use the keyboard to select an item: Up/Down.

If the user clicks/taps on an item, it will be selected AND then activated (a b-activate event will be fired just after the b-selected). If using keyboard, type ENTER to activate the selected item.

b-selectable is not styled. You need to style the b-selectable-selected CSS class to style the selected element.

.b-selectable-selected {
    background-color: #ccc;


b-selectable acts as an ARIA listbox widget. As such, role="listbox" will be automatically added to it, and role="option" to each item. Each selected list item will have aria-selected="true". TAB & Up/Down support are implemented.
