    How do I deselect an item from a ListBox

    Hi,

    How do I deselect an item from a ListBox?

    I've attached a basic example where the user can select a ListBox item and a UserForm pops up depending upon which ListBox selection was made. However, once the UserForm is closed, the selected item that launched it should be deselected.

    I've tried inserting ListIndex = -1 into the ListBox code, but it doesn't work. (I've commented the line out because it requires the "OK" command button in the UserForm to be clicked twice in order to execute a form unload.)

    What do you think is going wrong?

    Hello skysurfer,

    You need to set the value of the Selected property to False.

    Hi Lieth,

    Thanks. I inserted your code as seen below (and newly attached file), but it does not deselect the item in the list and for some weird reason it causes the OK buttons on the UserForm (that simply unload the form) to require a double click.

    Did I insert your code in the wrong place?

    Just bumping this up. Spent hours scouring the Web for the answer...seems Lieth's solution is dead on simple, but I keep messing it up somehow.

    Try moving the code to the MouseUp event in order to avoid the cascading events caused by clicking and setting the listindex value.
