    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.
