Description

Description:
Selects the item with the given index in the listbox, listnbox, combobox, xcombobox, xlistbox
The following only applies to the Alternative Syntax when used with CT_LISTBOX and CT_LISTNBOX.

To deselect all entries, use -1: _ctrl lbSetCurSel -1; For listbox of style LB_MULTI use lbSetSelected instead.
CT_COMBO does not allow deselecting entries, it will instead select the first one as it is not a combobox usual behaviour.

If you really need to deselect a combobox, see DreadedEntity's note.

Prior to ArmA 1.90 lbSetCurSel -1 had no effect while the listbox was populated. You needed to use lbClear first, then lbSetCurSel -1, then re-populate the listbox.

Keep in mind that running this command will fire the 'onLBSelChanged' event handler.
