This code allows you to move items in a list box just using the mouse. Every line commented. It is very simple. I have searched high and low for a code that JUST DOES THIS without any other jargon but couldn't find any so I made it and posted it. Please give me suggestions/comments. I have edited the code to allow multi select to be enabled due to someone asking for it.
