    here is my code for a listbox. when you click on the form it shows a dotted outline at the top of the listbox. I would like to remove it.

    [reflection.assembly]::loadwithpartialname("System.Windows.Forms") | Out-Null
    [reflection.assembly]::loadwithpartialname("System.Drawing") | Out-Null
    $form = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
    $form.Text = "test"
    $drawing_size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size
    $drawing_size.Width = 350
    $drawing_size.Height = 300
    $form.Size = $drawing_size
    $listbox1 = New-Object
    $System_Drawing_Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size
    $System_Drawing_Size.Width = 301
    $System_Drawing_Size.Height = 212
    $listBox1.Size = $System_Drawing_Size
    $System_Drawing_Point = New-Object System.Drawing.Point
    $System_Drawing_Point.X = 13
    $System_Drawing_Point.Y = 13
    $listBox1.Location = $System_Drawing_Point
    $form.ShowDialog() | Out-Null

    It's doing that because the list box has focus; the dotted line is showing you where your keyboard will start doing stuff if you press space, tab, etc. If your form has other elements, you can give one of those focus instead, but in this small example where the ListBox is your only control, you can just set the list box's TabStop property to False to get a similar result:

    $listbox1.TabStop = $false
