TListView preventing unselecting all

Hi all,

I need a ListView that always has a selection. The problem is that when the user clicks the blank area of the ListView (the area that remains below all items when the ListView is large enough) all items get deselcted. I want the last item selected to remain selected. The ListBox already works this way but I can't get the ListView to behave this way.

maybe this way?

procedure TForm1.ListView1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if not assigned(listview1.Selected) then
  begin
    listview1.Selected := listview1.Items[listview1.Items.Count-1];
    //maybe also needed
    listview1.ItemFocused := listview1.Selected;
  end;
end;
