The name property is the componet name (eg: ListBox1). There is not property "values" in the TlistBox component, I assume you mean "items".

Items is the list of entries in the list box. To add some items you can do this:

listBox1.items.add('Item 1');
listBox1.items.add('Item 2');
listBox1.items.add('Item 3');

Cheers,

Raymond.

hi emiltor,

first:

procedure TForm1.ListBox1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Listbox2.ItemIndex := listbox1.ItemIndex;
end;

second

  There is no value property
  Name is the property where you can name the component

hi emiltor,

the items in listbox contains the property values

you can use this, when the entries in the listbox in the following format

xy=z

with

with listbox1.items.values['xy'] you can retrieve the z

sample

  edit1.text :=  listbox1.items.values['xy'];

YOu can use this..

OnClick()

ListBox2.ItemIndex := ListBox1.ItemIndex;

or if the same string is in a different line then you can use something like this...

ListBox2.ItemIndex := ListBox2.IndexOf(ListBox1.Items.Strings[ListBox1.ItemIndex]);

Hope this helps...

Cheers,
Viktor
