ListItem Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

A character string array used to access the items in a ComboBox or ListBox control by item ID. Not available at design time; read/write at run time.

Control.ListItem(nRow [, nCol])[ = cChar]

Property Values

Specifies the row from which to retrieve the item. You can use the control.listitemID property.
Specifies, optionally, the column from which to derive the value. If you specify only listitemID column one provides the value.
Represents a value, optionally, to be assigned to the specified Control.listitem.


Use the List property to retrieve items in the order they are displayed; use the ListItem property to retrieve items according to their item ID.

Note   To add items to a combo box or list box, use the AddItem or AddListItem method. To remove items, use the RemovetItem method or the RemoveListItem method. To keep items in alphabetic order, set the control's Sorted property to True (.T.) before adding items to the list.

The ListItem property is also set when the Selected property on a Listbox control is set.
