    Hello

    I had this earlier on a multi column listbox on a form - but I changed
    something and behaviour went away. Now it is back again and can't work out
    how to stop it.

    Basically you cannot select a row! There is data there of course - 2 rows -
    but you cannot select any of the rows. I have a handler on DoubleClick and
    list.ListIndex is -1

    This is strange because this issue comes and goes as I change settings.
    Just can't for the life of me work out what I changed.

    Angus,

    Check your enabled, allow edits and locked properties on your list box.

    Checked Enabled and Locked properties - but couldn't see Allow Edits?

    Allow edits is a property on the form, not the listbox.

    Bah - it has fixed it sort of - but not quite.

    If I launch the form - I cannot select a row in the listbox. If I then
    change to Design view and then change back to Form view then I CAN select a
    row.

    How odd!

    Any ideas what is going on?

    you want to send it to me.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
