$objectArray = @($input)

## Ensure that they've piped information into the script
if($objectArray.Count -eq 0)
{
    Write-Error "This script requires pipeline input."
    return
}

## Load the Windows Forms assembly
Add-Type -Assembly System.Windows.Forms

## Create the main form
$form = New-Object Windows.Forms.Form
$form.Size = New-Object Drawing.Size @(600,600)

## Create the listbox to hold the items from the pipeline
$listbox = New-Object Windows.Forms.CheckedListBox
$listbox.CheckOnClick = $true
$listbox.Dock = "Fill"
$form.Text = "Select the list of objects you wish to pass down the pipeline"
$listBox.Items.AddRange($objectArray)

## Create the button panel to hold the OK and Cancel buttons
$buttonPanel = New-Object Windows.Forms.Panel
$buttonPanel.Size = New-Object Drawing.Size @(600,30)
$buttonPanel.Dock = "Bottom"

## Create the Cancel button, which will anchor to the bottom right
$cancelButton = New-Object Windows.Forms.Button
$cancelButton.Text = "Cancel"
$cancelButton.DialogResult = "Cancel"
$cancelButton.Top = $buttonPanel.Height - $cancelButton.Height - 5
$cancelButton.Left = $buttonPanel.Width - $cancelButton.Width - 10
$cancelButton.Anchor = "Right"

## Create the OK button, which will anchor to the left of Cancel
$okButton = New-Object Windows.Forms.Button
$okButton.Text = "Ok"
$okButton.DialogResult = "Ok"
$okButton.Top = $cancelButton.Top
$okButton.Left = $cancelButton.Left - $okButton.Width - 5
$okButton.Anchor = "Right"

## Add the buttons to the button panel
$buttonPanel.Controls.Add($okButton)
$buttonPanel.Controls.Add($cancelButton)

## Add the button panel and list box to the form, and also set
## the actions for the buttons
$form.Controls.Add($listBox)
$form.Controls.Add($buttonPanel)
$form.AcceptButton = $okButton
$form.CancelButton = $cancelButton
$form.Add_Shown( { $form.Activate() } )

## Show the form, and wait for the response
$result = $form.ShowDialog()

## If they pressed OK (or Enter,) go through all the
## checked items and send the corresponding object down the pipeline
if($result -eq "OK")
{
    foreach($index in $listBox.CheckedIndices)
    {
        $objectArray[$index]
    }
}
