I seldom use listbox now with VFP9 as like Cetin says, grid gives more...

By itself, I cannot think of a way to make the current selection remain highlighted. But don't be so downhearted, there is a trick to achieve that, not by toggling Enabled to False but by creating a transparent borderless shape on top of the listbox. Initially make it Visible=.F.. Then when you want to "disable" the listbox, make the transparent-bordeless shape Visible=.T. instead.

The effect would be the same, user cannot click on the listbox but the highlight will remain.
