Simple Drag Selection in WPF - CodeProject

Introduction to article

This is a short article that examines the implementation of a technique for drag selection of multiple items in a Canvas or ItemsControl derived class. In this article I use a ListBox to host the drag-selectable items.
In addition I look at how to make the selected items draggable. This felt like a natural addition as dragging the items is often what you would want to do after drag selecting them.
