Hi,

Presumably I set the columns to more than 1 for a multiple column listbox, but how do I get data into the columns and how do I activate the horizontal scroll bar.

Thanks

Chris

This should work, if not give a sign :

Set the TabWidth property in the ListBox property editor.
e.g.  if your listbox is 300 pixels, set the TabWidth to 100 or so.

When you add items to the listbox insert &Tabs" - ^I for example:

ListBox1.Items.Add('Column1'^I'Column2'^I'Column3');

PS. I is capital i !!

Regards, Zif.

Thanks,

I now understand Delphi columns in Listboxes. Coming from an Access perspective, Lisboxes can have true columns like a Grid control and I was expecting similar on reading that multi column was a property of the Delphi Listbox.

Regards

Chris
