how can i tile my bitmaps into a listbox, where it will look like a collection of thumbnails and there is a colour cursor surrounding each of the bitmaps?
i also need a button to add and delete from the listbox.
can it be done in a listbox or do i have to use the listview and imagelist control?

Listboxes can NOT be formated in any way to do the things you have mentioned
above. You might think so, but do take a good look at Office.
The font combobox does NOT contain any items. It simply pops up the ListView
control.

This is how you will achieve what you want.
Use the ListView, and place it on a stand alone form.
Pop it up as needed.
