Tkinter: Selecting one item in each of two listboxes

I have an application that produces two listboxes. I would like to be
able to select one of the items in the first listbox and one of the
items in the second listbox. However, when I make my selection in the
second listbox, the selected item in the first listbox gets deselected.
Is there a way to do this? I tried setting selectmode to MULTIPLE, but
that option only allows me to select multiple items in one of the
listboxes (both of which get deselected when I make a selection in the
second listbox).

I create the listboxes as follows:

listbox1_frame = Frame(root)
listbox1_frame. pack()
listbox1 = Listbox(listbox 1_frame, width = 40, height = 12)
listbox1.pack()

listbox2_frame = Frame(root)
listbox2_frame. pack()
listbox2 = Listbox(listbox 2_frame, width = 40, height = 8)
listbox2.pack()

Hello, Is there a quick way to replace the content of a single item in tkinter's listbox? Currently my solution is to first delete the item, then insert a new item at the same position. I think there may be better way. Zhang Le
