public class ListBoxItem

The ListBoxItem type exposes the following members.

Public methodListBoxItem(String)Initializes an instance of the ListBoxItem class.
Public methodListBoxItem(String, Int32)Initializes an instance of the ListBoxItem class.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringConverts a ListBoxItem to a String. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Public fieldItemDataStores the ItemData value for an item in a ListBox or ComboBox control in an application that was upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0.
Public fieldItemStringStores the List value for an item in a ListBox or ComboBox control in an application that was upgraded from Visual Basic 6.0.

In Visual Basic 6.0, the ListBox and ComboBox controls use a List property to store list items and an ItemData property to optionally store an Integer associated with each list item. In Visual Basic 2010, the ListBox and ComboBox controls use the Items property to store list items, and the ItemData property is no longer supported.

When a Visual Basic 6.0 application is upgraded to Visual Basic 2010, the upgrade tools create a ListBoxItem class for each item in a ListBox or ComboBox control. The SetItemData and GetItemData functions can then be used to enable any code that references the ItemData property.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
