    Multi-Column Listbox :: C#

    Hi.

    I am a C++ and MFC programmer. I have been forced to code a simple C# program at school. Frankly, I feel threaten. Secondly, I find C# confused. Everything is "Win Form." Where the heck are all the code behind the program?

    Anyways, I am desperately in need of help. Here is the basic program.

    Buttons = 2
    Edit boxes = 3
    Listbox = 1

    The idea is to enter information in one the three edit boxes and then click a button to add it to a list box.

    Right now I want to add multicolumns to the listbox.

    Please post if you have experience with C# and can point out all the shortcuts. This is a very simple introductory program.

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    C# isn't that different from C++/MFC. Do you have Visual Studio ? It creates code for you if you select columns. This is the code Visual Studio creates for a simple ListView ( can't have a listbox with multiple columns ) adds two columns and the first line.
    You will notice that the basics are the same:
    createlistview
    add column
    add column
    add item
    set subitem for second column of item

    PHP Code:
    using System;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Collections;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Data;

    namespace 
    WindowsApplication2
    {
        public class 
    Form1 System.Windows.Forms.Form
        
    {
            private 
    System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader m_ColumnHeaderTwo;
            private 
    System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader m_ColumnHeaderOne;
            private 
    System.Windows.Forms.ListView m_ListView;
            private 
    System.ComponentModel.Container components null;

            public 
    Form1()
            {
                
    InitializeComponent();
            }

            
    /// <summary>

    protected override void Disposebool disposing )
            {

                    {

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Oh, and if it's still WinForms with your version, you are still using Beta 1 ! Tell your teacher to get a non-beta Version from MS, the Framework and commandline compiler are free.
