Deletes the item in position nIndex from the list box.

int DeleteString(
   UINT nIndex 


Specifies the zero-based index of the string to be deleted.

A count of the strings remaining in the list. The return value is LB_ERR if nIndex specifies an index greater than the number of items in the list.

All items following nIndex now move down one position. For example, if a list box contains two items, deleting the first item will cause the remaining item to now be in the first position. nIndex=0 for the item in the first position.

// Delete every other item from the list box.
for (int i = 0; i < m_myListBox.GetCount(); i++)
