    Listbox Select items with Keyboard.

    Hi,
    I have a listbox whose RowSource is changed depending on which command button is clicked. I have been able to transfer the focus from the command button to the listbox as the command button is clicked, however, I canít seem to find a way to select items from the listbox using just the keyboard, selecting with the mouse works just fine but I would like to make it keyboard friendly.
    I have tried changing the ListStyle and every key combo I can think of. Iím beginning to think it might not be possible. I need some help from the experts.

    Casey: I don't think you can do that. You can use the arrow keys and the
    space bar to select items in the box. Also, check out

    which provide a method to limit what is shown in the listbox.

    ****,
    Thank you. That was exactly what I was looking for, the keystrokes to select items. The listbox works fine using the arrow keys and the spacebar for selecting items from the list.
    I think my question had a bit too much unneeded information. Thanks again for the response and the two links for me to study.
