Save listitems to the register


I have a ListView containing 10 items; I want these items to be saved in the register. And if to two (or more items) accidentally has the same name the items should be saved as the same key.

(I use VB6)

VB has a built-in way of getting and saving information using the Registry.

The methods are GetSetting, GetAllSettings, and SaveSetting.

formats are:

   GetSetting(appname, section, key[, default])

   GetAllSettings(appname, section)

   SaveSetting appname, section, key, setting

Hope this helps!


By the way, there are examples of these methods in the VB Help Pages...

I am already aware of the GetSetting, GetAllSettings, and SaveSetting methods. I am not sure if you understood what I wanted. I try to explain again:

I have a ListView with 10 items. When pressing a button all these items should be saved into the registry. When using what you suggested just one item was saved into the registry. What I want is the items to appear like this and if two items accidentally has the same name just one of them should be saved.  

FavPath1            "Listitem1"
FavPath2            "Listitem2"
FavPath3            "Listitem3"
FavPath4            "Listitem4"
FavPath5            "Listitem5"
FavPath6            "Listitem6"
You need to do a SaveSetting for each item... Not just one.
