ExtendedSelect property for PowerScript controls


ListBox, PictureListBox, ListView controls


ExtendedSelect specifies whether users can select more than
one item in a ListBox or ListView at one time. When ExtendedSelect
is enabled, users can select multiple items by clicking on an item
and dragging the mouse up or down to select items, using Click or
Shift+Click to select a sequential group of items, or using
Control+Click on multiple items. When ExtendedSelect is
not enabled, users cannot select multiple items.
