where is the problem?
maybe you should show what you do

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if listbox1.CanFocus then
    listbox1.SetFocus;
end;

You are getting an array error? It is NOT coming from the listbox because Listbox deosn't use arrays.
If you post the code you are using and the COMPLETE error message, we can help you.

I have never seen this problem before but I have had issues where SetFocus causes errors (especially on 3rd party components in ActiveX forms) and I solved this by using SetFocus in the Windows unit.

Example
SetFocus(ListBox1.Handle);

However, like EddieShipman said, this seems to be something other than a SetFocus error. The ListBox will use arrays in the OS to manage the items but I have never seen this error in Delphi before.

What would that have to do with setting focus to the listbox, anyway?

Robn gave you the correct answer to do that but it can be shortened to:

ListBox1.ItemIndex := ListBox1.Items.Add(...);
