Is there a mode that will select all the rows between the selected row and the clicked row when holding down the shift key. Along those same line do I have to handle the item selected event to unselect a row if a user clicks on a row without holding down the ctl key. I would like (well the users would like) the grid to act more like a list box.

Hello Don,

RadGridView supports several selection modes but I am afraid that you have described a combination of the modes that our grid currently supports. For example, our Extended mode allows you to make a range selection by using the Shift key but you can only unselect a row by holding down the Control key. Contrary the Multiple mode is not affected by keys like Control, or Shift but it enables you to select or unselect rows by just clicking on them.

Those modes are available in the standard Selector controls and we try to be consistent with the default selection behavior that most users are used to. We are considering adding several alternative modes but for now it is not clear whether we will be able to introduce new modes in the near future.

If you would like I could try to implement some additional functionality over the default Multiple selection mode that will allow multiple selection with the the Shift key. 

More information about our selection mechanism is available here.

Thanks Milan, The powers that be say "Extended" mode is close enough.
