Select Multiple Controls and the Dominant Control

You can select more than one control in three ways. When you select multiple controls, one of the controls becomes a reference for the rest and is called the dominant control.

Selection method Controls selected Dominant control
SHIFT+CLICK All controls in an invisible rectangle around the selected controls. The first control that you select.
CTRL+CLICK Individual controls, one at a time. The last control that you select.
Select Objects pointer in Control Toolbox All controls that fall within or touch a rectangle that you draw. The control that is nearest to the mouse pointer when you begin to draw the rectangle.
