Please find demonstrated by the attached example a way of selecting multiple contiguous controls using the OnMouseMove event.
For illustration purposes the example provided selects colored rectangles and incorporates them into a Time Picker control.
The solution is not meant to be 100% Plug and Play. More than likely you will need to make small adaptations to use it with your own project. But it seemed like a very useful technique to demonstrate nonetheless.
The code has been kept as simple as possible to allow for easy modification. I can imagine many uses for this and I look forward to seeing what others come up with.
For further discussion a thread has been started here.

The attached example is from Chris O'Brien (ChrisO).

THe has taken the time to tighten up the code if you're actually going to use this as a production time picker. He has also included a new method that incorporates a single control that overlays all the others, thus allowing only a single OnMouseMove event to be processed.

Nice adaptation, Chris! thumbup.gif
