GUI List select multiple items?

Instead of them doing a file-open mutiple times, I'd like to list the probable files in a GUI list, allow the user to select several of them, then retrieve them into session (not display them).

My question concerns the end users abilities in the listbox. Can a user select (highlight) multiple items in a listbox while holding CTRL key down?

ProUIListSelectednamesGet says it Gives the names of the currently selected ITEMS in a list. I assuming "Items" means plural, but just checking before I sink a lot of time into a test, because the GUI apps can be time consuming.
