How to focus a selected record in a TListView

I'm not sure if Im missing something obvious here, but is there a way to focus a selected item in a listview, and actually move the scrollbars down to put it in the screen?

I've got ListView.Selected, and if I move my scroll bars down manually, I can see the record is selected.

Problem is I can't seem to get the listview to actually move down to the selected record and automatically display it by moving its own scrollbars.

What am I missing?

supposing you wanted to make item 10 focused:

  ListView1.Items[10].MakeVisible(True);
  ListView1.Items[10].Selected:=True;
  ListView1.SetFocus

if you only want it focused, but not selected, change

ListView1.Items[10].Selected:=True;
by this:
ListView1.Items[10].Focused:=True;

try with both and see the difference
