If the AllowMultiSelection property is set to true, end-users can select multiple drawn objects (for example, pictures) or non-adjacent cell ranges in the worksheet simultaneously by holding down the CTRL key. If this property is set to false, multi-selection is not available in the SpreadsheetControl’s UI. Note that the AllowMultiSelection option does not affect multi-selection in code.
