I made this list box because I've seen it in so many places that people ask how to do this. Well, I'm just a beginner , and this is what I came up with, its not very complicated code, not long either. ChrisTina requested that the list box show people's names and the ones that had over due library books where shown in red. So here is what I made for her/him [sorry not sure with the name]
I'm going to have you make an exact duplicate of the one that is on my computer that way I know it works, right down to the size and position of the controls.
1>Start a new project, with the form set its properties to these Height = 4320 Keypreview = True Width = 7200 2> Add a text box to the form, it's properties are these Font = MS Sans Serif, 12 pt Left = 120 Height = 375 Top = 210 Width = 3225 3>Add a check box to form, properties are these Name = chklate Caption = Overdue Books Height = 285 Left = 555 Top = 1230 Width = 2385 Visible = False 4>Add a two command buttons, thier properties are First Button Name = butnew Top = 3060 Left = 1080 Height = 315 Width = 1410 Caption = New Second Button Name = butchange Caption = Save Changes Height = 315 Left = 1080 Top = 3465 Width = 1410 Visible = False 5> Add a picture box with the following properties Name = container Height = 3735 Left = 3480 Top = 120 Width = 3540 6>Add a picture box inside of the other one properties are Name = lst AutoSize = True Height = 4005 Left = -15 Top = -15 Width = 3240 Appearence = Flat BackGround Color = White 7>Add a Vertical Scroll Bar inside of first picture box, you should see a little space left for it if you used all of my values, the properties are Name = scr1 Height = 3675 Left = 3195 Top = 0 Width = 285 8>Add a label inside of the second picture box [ the white one] Name = lstitem Autosize = False Caption = Example ListBox Item Font = MS Sans Serif 12pt Height = 22 Index = 0 //VERY IMPORTANT Left = 0 Top = 1
Part Two has the actual code in it, I don't know how long these tutorials can be so I split it up
