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.

Use ListBox.SetSelected Method to select/unselect items in multiple-selection ListBox.
