Hola !!

Tengo una página con un formulario, dentro de este tengo un listbox con X
cantidad de elementos; cuando env*o la pagina un proceso asp dentro de esta
misma página debe leer estos elementos para luego almacenarlos en la Base de
Datos.

He intendado con el Request.Form("listbox"), pero no funciona

No se como hacerlo, pero no puedo usar un listbox del lado de servidor.

What do "doesn't work" and "pero no funciona" mean? Do you get an error?
Do you get unexpected results? What is a listbox? Do you mean a <SELECT>
input? Tell us what's happening and show us what it's happening with.

Hi Ray !!

First at all, Im not good writing english and the first message is write in
english and Spanish !!

I have the usual page with 2 listbox to add or remove elements from one to
another !!

Im try to make a security page when you choose the users who has access to
the Web Application, passing them from one listbox to the other !!

When you are done, the you submit the page... and here is my question !!

I need to be able to read the elements from the 2nd listbox (it has the new
users) and then save that info to my database.

I try using the Request.Form("listbox2") sentence and dont retreive the
elements of the listbox !!

I need to know who can I do it !!

Thank you for the fast answer and for your help !!

Listbox is a <SELECT>, correct?

When you submit a form with a <SELECT> element, it only passes the items
that are selected. You can either use some client-side code to mirror the
items in a hidden input, or add some javascript to select all of the items
in the <SELECT> just prior to submitting. Example:

<script type="text/javascript">
function selectAll(o) {
for(var i=0;i<o.length;i++) {
o[i].selected=true;
}
return true;
}
</script>

<form method="post" action="youraction.asp" onsubmit="return
selectAll(listbox2);">
<select name="listbox2" multiple>
''options added by your existing code
</select>
<input type="submit">
</form>
