Identifying the index with focus in custom listfield

I am trying to work with a custom listfield. I would like to know the index of the row that has focus, both for access from a screen menu and for possible highlight customization.

 

I thought this would be ListField.getSelectedIndex() but it looks like a row is selected only when you click it (or go into selection mode).

 

There doesn't seem to be a straightforward API for this unless I'm missing something?

ListField.getSelectedIndex() returns the row index with focus, -1 otherwise.

Do you have example code to provide?

Your response made me go look at the assumptions in my code again. Looks like user error. Thanks and sorry for taking your time.
