How can I ensure that when I add an Item to a TListBox and/or a TComboBox (e.g. ListBox1.Items.Add('add this')) that the new string is not already in the list?  I am trying to keep duplicates OUT of these lists/components.

You can do something like this

If ListBox1.Items.IndexOf(MyStr) = -1 Then // MyStr not found
  ListBox1.Items.Add(MyStr);

The same goes for ComboBox..
