    The RetainSelectionBlock property applies to cell selections in the grid modes (Normal and ReadOnly) and also applies to cell focus indicators (Normal and RowMode). This property does not apply to row selections in the list modes (RowMode, SingleSelect, MultiSelect, ExtendedSelect). List boxes always show their row selections.

    sv.RetainSelectionBlock = true;
    Dim sv As FarPoint.Win.Spread.SpreadView = FpSpread1.GetRootWorkbook
    sv.RetainSelectionBlock = True
