Set Focus on other Control after List View Selection Changed

In my application there is a list view that when a selection is changed I would like to set the focus on a specific control. I am using the ItemSelectionChanged event to capture the change. And yes I know that the event fires twice and that is why if validate IsSelected.

After the event is fired, the focus returns to the list view. Very frustrating. I tried Do Events and a list view refresh before setting the focus and that did not work.

Side note: the function SetPayment updates several controls with information. There are no events attached to any of those controls.

    Private Sub lsvPayments_ItemSelectionChanged( _
        ByVal sender As Object, _
        ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItemSelectionChangedEventArgs) _
        Handles lsvPayments.ItemSelectionChanged

        SetPayment()
        If e.IsSelected Then
            txtRefundAmt.Focus()
            If Len(txtRefundAmt.Text) > 0 Then
                txtRefundAmt.SelectAll()
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

What happens if you use the SelectedIndexChanged event instead?

Still the same action. The selection is made but then disappears and focus is reset to the list view.

Thanks for the response.

Can you show the code you tried?

Do you have any code elsewhere which also changes focus of controls?

Here is the code I tried. There is no code that sets the focus of controls anywhere on the form.


    Private Sub lsvPayments_SelectedIndexChanged( _
        ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
        Handles lsvPayments.SelectedIndexChanged
        txtRefundAmt.Focus()
        If Len(txtRefundAmt.Text) > 0 Then
            txtRefundAmt.SelectAll()
        End If
    End Sub

I ended up using the following code. It's not the best solution but it will have to do.

    Private Sub lsvPayments_KeyUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) _
        Handles lsvPayments.KeyUp
        txtRefundAmt.Focus()
        If Len(txtRefundAmt.Text) > 0 Then
            txtRefundAmt.SelectAll()
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub lsvPayments_MouseUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) _
        Handles lsvPayments.MouseUp
        txtRefundAmt.Focus()
        If Len(txtRefundAmt.Text) > 0 Then
            txtRefundAmt.SelectAll()
        End If
    End Sub
