How to lock a list box...

I have a list box on a VB form.  I don't want to disable it (because I want its content to stay dark and readable).  Also, don't like it to be selectable (now, when I click on a item on this list box, it gets selected and that item gets high-lighted).

Following doesn't work?

Sub lstBox_MouseUp(....)
   lstBox.Selected = False
End Sub
----------
I also made txtDummy, and
Sub lstBox_Click()
   txtDummy.SetFocus
End Sub

Sub txtDummy_GotFocus()
   lstBox.Selected = False
End Sub

Any Idea?
