Add Code and decode to listbox

Newbie alert!
I have a webform listbox with what I am sure is a common requirement. I wish
to store a list of values but display a "translatio n" or decode. An example
would be 1, 2, 3, 4 and One, Two, Three, Four

I created

class ListBoxSpecial
public string Code;
public string Decode;

public override string ToString()
return Decode;

public ListBoxSpecial (string Code, string Decode)
this.Code = Code;
this.Decode = Decode;

I then populate the listbox, ListBox1 on page load. E.g. I loop round doing

ListBox1.Items. Add(new ListBoxSpecial( myCode, MyDecode)

I was hoping the ListBox would display

but when selected I could return "2" or whatever code/decode was
appropriate. However when I try this I get the error
The best overloaded method match for
'System.Web.UI. WebControls.Lis tItemCollection .Add(string)' has some invalid
Argument '1': cannot convert from 'myproj.WebForm 1.ListBoxSpecia l' to

Any help would be gratefully received.

I add several JavaScript events (onchange, onkeypress, etc.) to Controls using the Add method of the Attributes collection. However, if the JavaScript code contains certain characters, such as & or < or several others, it converts them to html, such as &amp; or &lt; which can sometimes cause my scripts not to work. How can I prevent ASP.NET from doing this? Thanks. -- Nathan Sokalski njsokalski@hotmail.com http://www.nathansokalski.com/
