Is there a way to allow the user to select multiple items in ListView by clicking on each one instead of having to use CTRL+Click.  

On the ListBox you can get this functionality by setting  MultiSelect = 1 (Simple) instead of 2 (Extended). How could you get the same effect in ListView ? API calls ?

niraj,

  You could implement multiselect in listview by modify listview style to include checkbox in each item.

  There are good examples(commented) at these pages:

Thanks for the pointer. I'll try to get the checkboxes to work. Unfortunately it will work only in the report view type. The user also has to click on the checkbox itself. It would be much better to be able to click on several items in the Icon view mode if I could get that to work. Requiring the user to repeatedly click on a target the size of a checkbox can be a little annoying. A lot of users seem to have trouble with the fine motor control that using a mouse sometimes demands. But I digress.... You answered my question and thanks.
