The filelist box is listing the files in the path specified in the path property, you either need to change your path, change your pattern to something that doesn't exist (e.g. *.qza) or make the filelist box invisible.

To do which?

myForm.myFileListBox.visible = false

will do it or

myForm.myFileListBox.pattern = "*.qza" 'or another file extension...

I apologize for the confusion, I should have been clearer in the begining. I have a directorylistbox which when I select a folder, shows the contents in the filelistbox. The user can then select a file from the filelistbox. I would like to put a button that will keep the filelistbox visible, yet clear the contents and at the same time not set the pattern or path because that will not allow it to work with the directorylistbox. Hope that helps.

But the filelistbox has a path and will display the files in that path, until the path or pattern changes, the files in that path will always be displayed.

The best option would be the pattern option to change it to something crazy, then when you want to change the directorylistbox, it sets the path and pattern accordingly...
