|Java TM Look and Feel Design Guidelines: Advanced Topics > Part I: General Topics > 4: Behavior > Selecting Multiple Objects||
Users sometimes want to use a single command to perform the same action on multiple objects--that is, on more than one object at a time. To provide this capability in your application, you first need to provide multiple selection, the ability to select more than one object at a time.
For more information about multiple selection in lists and in tables, see "Selection Models and Editing Models for Tables" on page 72 . In addition, see Chapter 12 and Appendix A of Java Look and Feel Design Guidelines , 2d ed.
When users use the mouse to select multiple objects, select each object whose center is within the bounding box.
