Class: DragBox

ol.interaction.DragBox

Allows the user to draw a vector box by clicking and dragging on the map, normally combined with an ol.events.condition that limits it to when the shift or other key is held down. This is used, for example, for zooming to a specific area of the map (see ol.interaction.DragZoom and ol.interaction.DragRotateAndZoom).

This interaction is only supported for mouse devices.
