ListIndex Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the index number of the selected item in a ComboBox or ListBox control. Not available at design time; read/write at run time.

Control.ListIndex[ = nIndex]

Property Values

The settings for the ListIndex property are:
Setting Description
0 (Default) Indicates no items selected. For a combo box, this means that the user has entered a value not in the list.
1 ... ListCount    The index of the selected item.


The following displays the string of the selected item.

? List(MyList.ListIndex)

You can return the same value by using the control's Value property.

Setting the MultiSelect property of a ListBox to .T. allows more than one item to be selected. In this case, the ListIndex will contain the index of the item that currently has the selection border.
