All shapes in a worksheet are contained in the ShapeCollection, accessible via the Worksheet.Shapes property. Use the SetSelectedShapes method to select multiple shapes in the worksheet simultaneously. To get the list of selected shapes, use the Worksheet.GetSelectedShapes method. To specify whether multi-selection is available to end-users in the SpreadsheetControl, use the SpreadsheetSelectionOptions.AllowMultiSelection option accessible via the SpreadsheetControl.Options.Behavior.Selection.AllowMultiSelection notation.

To specify a single shape (for example, a picture) selected in the worksheet, use the Worksheet.SelectedShape or Worksheet.SelectedPicture property.

The SelectedPicture, SelectedShape, GetSelectedShapes and SetSelectedShapes members of the SpreadsheetControl or SpreadsheetControl object allow you to select shapes in the worksheet that is currently active in the control.
