Grid with possibility to select cells from area

I need a grid that has possibility to select cells from specific area by keeping mouse button down, dragging mouse and releasing the button. The area that is between first cell and last cell should be selected and the information about selection should be sent to server.

Spreadsheet has that functionality, but I do not want to have any other excel functionality than selecting area. It would be great if Grid and Table had this kind of functionality. One way would probably be implement mouseover and mouse release events, but I think that current solutions do not have these functionalities.

Can anyone give hints for solving this issue?
