Change the focus of the form to a different control. So set it to

button.Focus();

Open in new window


I believe the listbox won't show selection if it is not selected. You can even set focus to the form or page.

After loading the items in the listbox execute this line of code:
listbox1.selectedindex = -1

Open in new window

Another alternative can be:

Control SelectionMode property of ListBox.

Private Sub Form2_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
	listBox1.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.None
End Sub

Private Sub listBox1_MouseClick(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs)
	listBox1.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.One
End Sub

Open in new window
