Are VB collections always sorted by key?
i.e. if I add items only using data and key (not after:= or before:=) will For Each ... enumerates items in order of keys?
In other words - I need the *sorted* list of items. May I just use collections for that purpose and be sure that it will work... ? If no - what may I use except sorted ListBox?

You can't use collections for that-they contain items in the exact order you added them. You you want sorted items, you can add them to listbox and collection at the same time, and set .ItemData of the list to the index of the same item in the collection, so you can refer to it later
