Multi Select Listbox control - SO SIMPLE BUT WHERE IS IT!

P: n/a
Hi guys,

I've searched and search... everyone talks about the multiselect
listbox control they have. BUT... how the hell do I implement it in
the first place. Do I just have to turn on a standard reference? Do I
have to download an active X? And whats the name of it in the "More
Controls" list.

Thanks for any help

It's a plain old ListBox. They have a MultiSelect property that defaults to
"None" But which can also be set to "Simple" or "Extended". If you look at
the propery sheet you will find it.

It cannot be easily used to store data in a table though if that is what you
wanted to do. Once set to MultiSelect mode the ListBox always has a value
of Null.

The normal listbox control that appears in the toolbox can be multiselect.
All you need to do is change its Multiselect property.

Of course, you can't use a multiselect listbox as a bound control.
