Editor Drop-Down Bug...

I wrote an editor for a web control that allows it to list all controls on a
page in a drop down box in the property grid. In the EditValue method, I
have the following (not all the code, but most of it):

' Create the listbox to display the control id's.
listBox = New ListBox()

With listBox
.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Non e
.Sorted = True
End With

' Get the find and replace control.
ctrl = DirectCast(cont ext.Instance, FindButton)

' Add the controls to the listbox.
AddListItems(li stBox, ctrl.Parent.Pag e.Controls)

' Turn off sorting.
listBox.Sorted = False

' Add the "None" item.
listBox.Items.I nsert(0, "None")

' If there is a value, select it.
If CStr(value) = String.Empty
listBox.Selecte dItem = "None"
listBox.Selecte dIndex = listBox.FindStr ing(CStr(value) )
End If

' Display the list as a drop-down.
AddHandler _
listBox.Selecte dIndexChanged, _
AddressOf listBox_Selecte dIndexChanged
mEditorService. DropDownControl (listBox)
RemoveHandler _
listBox.Selecte dIndexChanged, _
AddressOf listBox_Selecte dIndexChanged

If listBox.Selecte dIndex >= 0
If listBox.Selecte dIndex = 0
Return String.Empty
Return CStr(listBox.Se lectedItem)
End If
Return CStr(value)
End If

Now, when I compile and test it on a web page, in design mode, it works
fine. But if I select the property and open the drop-down box, then
(without selecting an item in the box) select another property the drop-down
box closes, but the property with the drop-down box gets reselected in the
property grid instead of the property I just clicked. Wierd bug and I can't
figure out how to stop it.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance, like always ;)
