Hi Community,

The issue is when I select options from the right and move them to the left issue is over there.

If i click the unselect button even with out pointing a specific element in the right options, bottom most element get removed from the right options. 
Smple code of the unSelect button.
<apex:panelGrid columns="4" id="grid2">              
                    <apex:selectList id="sel3" value="{!leftSelectedRatProds}" multiselect="true" style="width:120px" size="15">
                        <apex:selectOptions value="{!unSelectedRatProductValues}" />
                        <apex:panelGroup >
                            <apex:image id="rightrat" value="{!$Resource.RightArrowButton}" width="30px" height="30px">
                                <apex:actionSupport event="onclick" action="{!selectRatProduct}" reRender="grid2"/>
                            <apex:image id="leftrat" value="{!$Resource.LeftArrowButton}" width="30px" height="30px" >
                                <apex:actionSupport event="onclick"  action="{!unselectRatProduct}" reRender="grid2"/>
                    <apex:selectList id="sel4" value="{!rightSelectedRatProds}" multiselect="true" style="width:120px" size="15">
                        <apex:selectOptions value="{!SelectedRatProductValues}"  />
public PageReference unselectRatProduct(){
       // leftSelectedRatProds.clear();
     for(Integer i=0;i<=rightSelectedRatProds.size(); i++){
      if(rightRatProds != null && rightRatProds.size()>0){
        for(String s : rightSelectedRatProds){  
        return null;   

Please share some idea or suggest the code changes in the above given method or vf script.


Don't reinvent the wheel. This blogpost and coresponding code have a pre-build mutli-select picklist for you to drop in.https://developer.salesforce.com/blogs/developer-relations/2012/06/a-multiselect-picklist-visualforce-component.html
It's well tested, and I have used it in several production apps.
