Hi all,

I'm having trouble figuring out how to set a selected item in a list box.  I have the text that I want to find, but the DoFindData is an inherited protected function.  I can also find the index of the row, but the SetItemIndex is also an inherited protected function so I am unable to use either one of these.  Any ideas on how I can choose what row is selected in the TListBox?

Thanks

ListBox.ItemIndex := Listbox.Items.IndexOf( 'This string')

Something like that?

Set the itemindex property

e.g. Listbox1.ItemIndex:= 1
0

if you have "MultiSelect" set to tru though, you will need to set each item as selected manually
eg.
  listbox1.Selected[1] := true;
  listbox1.Selected[2] := true;
