disable highlighting of listbox selection

I have a group of listboxes that a user selects items from. Normally you select an item from a listbox and the item becomes highlighted blue, click it again and the highlighting is disabled. Is it possible to disable the highlighting, or as the item is selected remove the highlighting.
Also when a user holds down the spacebar in a listbox,all consecutive items are selected, can this be prevented.

I am not entirely sure what programming language you are using but I will answer it from the Visual Basic point of view.  You want to immediately disable the highlighting of an item as soon as it is selected.  The code that I am putting below will do this in Visual Basic.  A few things to note -- the name of the object is List1 so you will need to change this to the name of the object that you are using.  This code is also placed in the Click Method.  I will post some more details later.
Private Sub List1_Click()
  If List1.ListIndex >= 0 Then
      If List1.Selected(List1.ListIndex) = True Then
          List1.Selected(List1.ListIndex) = False
      End If
  End If
End Sub

vbWizard,
sorry for not giving the programming language, but you were right on target. Your suggestion works great. Nice simple answer.
Thanks.

By the way, I had one of the list boxes set for multi select, thats why the spacebar was selecting consecutive items
