Drag select multiple place holders

I am looking to allow my users to select multiple fields at once.
I have a 4x4 array of place holders I want the user to be able to select any amount of them by dragging their finger across the place holders. I think it would probably be best if this worked in a manner that made diagonal drags select in a box like fashion. As is normal in Windows.

Once all the placeholders are selected I would want the information of how many place holders were selected to be shown like in the attached image. In the image I posted only one Place holder was selected.

I am at a los at how to accomplish this. Any help would be appreciated

I had messed with this in reply to another post earlier. See the attached file and check out the earlier post for an explanation.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I am having trouble getting this to work with a touch screen. I have this requirement on hold for now though :slight_smile:
