LB_SETSEL
An application sends an LB_SETSEL message to select a string in a multiple-selection list box.

To send this message, call the SendMessage function with the following parameters.

SendMessage(
  (HWND) hWnd,         // handle to destination window
  LB_SETSEL,           // message to send
  (WPARAM) wParam,     // selection option
  (LPARAM) lParam      // item index
);
Parameters
wParam
Specifies how to set the selection. If this parameter is TRUE, the string is selected and highlighted; if it is FALSE, the highlight is removed and the string is no longer selected.
lParam
Specifies the zero-based index of the string to set. If this parameter is –1, the selection is added to or removed from all strings, depending on the value of wParam.
Return Values
If an error occurs, the return value is LB_ERR.

Remarks
Use this message only with multiple-selection list boxes.

Maybe you could replace the listbox with a list ctrl (in report view), and set the "show selection always" property.

Ok I'm new to this using   SendMessage( hDlg,LB_SETSEL,TRUE,0);
I get:
error C2660: 'SendMessageA' : function does not take 4 parameters  ??

I also tried this. It compiles but does not work;
m_List is the ListBox Control
void MyDlg::OnRadioBtn1()
{
m_List.SendMessage( LB_SETSEL,TRUE,0);
}

I just found my mistake
I am using a ListControl not a listBox.
If this takes more effort I can add some more points
Thanks
