Using the ListBox control with a database field

I just started learning VB and I am just getting use to the controls.  My question is how do I get the contents of a field to appear in the listbox.  I am using a FoxPro table.

Thanks.

To use a bound list box there are two steps...

1. Insert a data control on the form and set the connect properties, database name and recordsource properties.

2. Insert a reference to the databound ListBox, this is different than the standard list box in the ToolBox, you will need to go to <P>roject menu and select Componen<t>s.... It should appear in the list.

3. On the DBList control, set the rowsource property to the data control you created and then set ListField and BoundColumn properties.

Hope this gets you started...
