shortcut

I have several listboxes but i want to show only one of them at a time. I used the following code. Though it worked fine but it is very lengthy.If anybody could tell me any shortcut?

If Node.Index = 13 Then
  List1.Visible = False
  List2.Visible = False
  List3.Visible = True
  List4.Visible = False
  List5.Visible = False
 
ElseIf Node.Index = 14 Then
 List1.Visible = False
  List2.Visible = False
  List3.Visible = False
  List4.Visible = True
  List5.Visible = False
 
 Elseif ...... and so on

if i understood you Q,
try this:

list1.visible=false
list2.visible=false
list3.visible=false
list4.visible=false
list5.visible=false

if list1.listindex =1 then
    list3.visible=true
elseif list1.listindex =2 then
    list4.visible=true
elseif....... and so on.
 
or use a case statemenet as follow

list1.visible=false
list2.visible=false
list3.visible=false
list4.visible=false
list5.visible=false

select case list1.listindex
 case 1:
    list3.visible=true
case 2:
    list4.visible=true
case 3 :
..... and so on.
end select


hope you the best

Define your list boxes as a CONTROL ARRAY. Then you'll have:

FOR Ndx = 1 to Number_of_controls
 IF Ndx = Desired_number THEN
    List1(Ndx).Visible = True
 ELSE
    List1(Ndx).Visible = False
 ENDIF
NEXT Ndx
