Create mutually exclusive checkboxes in "dat GUI" api.

The problem : I want only one checkbox to be selected at a time. I want it to work same as radio buttons.
 Note : dat gui does not offer radio buttons.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this instead of your current lines 14-16 in abc.js:
    gui.add(gui_controls,'option1').listen().onChange(function(value) { gui_controls.option1 = true; gui_controls.option2 = false; gui_controls.option3 = false; } );
    gui.add(gui_controls,'option2').listen().onChange(function(value) { gui_controls.option1 = false; gui_controls.option2 = true; gui_controls.option3 = false; } );
    gui.add(gui_controls,'option3').listen().onChange(function(value) { gui_controls.option1 = false; gui_controls.option2 = false; gui_controls.option3 = true; } );

Note that it's a bit quick & dirty. I found some code in the google documentation but found a problem with setting the value of the checkboxes, it seems they stay checked as far as the browser is concerned so clicking on them a second time did nothing, the third time was ok again... That's why I added the setting to true of the clicked box which shouldn't be necessary normally I would think.
