Determine selected item: cmbo or listbox

Determine selected item: cmbo or listbox

Determine selected item: cmbo or listbox

I'm trying to create an If...then statement.
What I would like to occur is if user selects an item from the list, a label will display a number (ex: if user selects item "Very good", then lblLabel1.Caption = 5).
Somewhere along the way, I am not understanding how to write the code. I am assuming it has something to do with the index #. (if you can't tell, I'm brand new to programming, trying to teach myself)
Anyone got a suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Determine selected item: cmbo or listbox

The listindex property of the listbox and combobox is a long which gives you the index of the selection. It starts a 0 and goes to number of items in list -1. another way to do it is to associate a value in the itemdata property for the newly added item and then retrieve that value.

to add a value to the itemdata use

list.itemdata(list.newindex) = value

to retrive the itemdata property use

value = list.itemdata(list.listindex)

RE: Determine selected item: cmbo or listbox

you can also use
it will return just the text
or x will equal "Very good" in your case.

here is a code example

Private Sub Form_Load()
List1.AddItem "Very Good"
List1.AddItem "Normal"
List1.AddItem "Bad"
End Sub

Private Sub List1_Click()
If List1.Text = "Very Good" Then
' put your code here
End If
End Sub
