How to programatically select an item in a multi-exteded listbox

Posted on 2006-06-27
Last Modified: 2010-04-23
My listbox is fully populated, and based upon certain program conditions, I want to select certain (multiple) items programatically.

I would expect something like this to work:
     LB_Clients.Items(i).selected = True
but it simply gives me an error message

Thanks in advance for your help.
