List1.Selected(0) = False

Where 0 is the ListIndex.

For x = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
      If lstFileList.Selected(x) = True Then
         lstFileList.Selected(x) = False
      End If
   Next

Open in new window


I have that code in place. But the problem is I also have another piece of code that triggers off upon ItemCheck event
Private Sub lstFileList_ItemCheck(Item As Integer)
    Dim i, j As Integer
    For i = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
        If lstFileList.Selected(i) = True Then
            ReDim Preserve arrSourceFilesToBExported(j)
            arrSourceFilesToBExported(j) = lstFileList.List(i)
            j = j + 1
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Create a form-level or global boolean variable. Something like

Public gbIgnore As Boolean

and then

gbIgnore = True
For x = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
      If lstFileList.Selected(x) = True Then
         lstFileList.Selected(x) = False
      End If
   Next
gbIgnore = False

Open in new window

and
Private Sub lstFileList_ItemCheck(Item As Integer)
    Dim i, j As Integer

    If gbIgnore Then Exit Sub

    For i = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
        If lstFileList.Selected(i) = True Then
            ReDim Preserve arrSourceFilesToBExported(j)
            arrSourceFilesToBExported(j) = lstFileList.List(i)
            j = j + 1
        End If
    Next
End Sub

And this code

gbIgnore = True
For x = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
      If lstFileList.Selected(x) = True Then
         lstFileList.Selected(x) = False
      End If
   Next
gbIgnore = False

Open in new window


could simply be

gbIgnore = True
For x = 0 To lstFileList.ListCount - 1
         lstFileList.Selected(x) = False
   Next
gbIgnore = False
