Listbox Selected Row Color

Is it possible to change the color of the “bar” when we select a row in a listbox?

Yes. It’s very easy to find in the documentation.

Okay Tim…I’ll see there.

Something like this in CellBackgroundPaint:

If row = Me.ListIndex Then g.ForeColor = RGB(255, 0, 0) g.FillRect(0, 0, g.Width, g.Height) Return True End If
Depending on the color, you might want to change the text color as well.
In CellTextPaint:

If row = Me.ListIndex Then g.ForeColor = RGB(255, 255, 0) g.DrawString(Me.Cell(row, column), 0, 0) End If

Thanks a lot, Marco!! Great!

That code assumes you don’t have multiple selection enabled for the listbox. Best to check Listbox.Selected(row) to make the code more general.
