I have a list view control which shows all the employee names. The user can select the employee to be edited by clicking an item in the listview control. The info of the employee will be displayed in a group of textboxes where the user can make the necessary changes.

The input will only be validated when the user selected another employee or the save button is clicked. If there is an invalid input, the corresponding control will have focus.
e.g., if the user leaves the name blank, a message will be displayed then the textbox control for the name will have focus.

How do I stop the listview from changing the selecteditem if an invalid input is found?
