Make the first line in a Text List active under program control

I’m pretty sure I asked this before, but I don’t believe I ever got an answer. When I first bring up a new Text List (from a new Query) I have to click on a line to make it the active line; none is active by default. It would be really handy to have the first line automatically active so that other places on the form that display data based on the selected line actually have some data to display. Having it always be only the first line at this point is OK; having nothing selected is the problem.
