List bar query.....or not?

I have got node click events in a TreeView that return data (Text) and place the output (at the moment) in a ListBox...............however.

What I want to do is be able to click or highlight the text in the ListBox, and then select menu actions that will perform events on the text selected. However the complication comes as the text outputted by the node click is not simply flat text it is a reference to a batch of data, which within it has lots of different files, and it's these files I want to manipulate with my menu options. This is pretty much an emulation of some of the functionality of windows explorer.

My question is how do I do this?
Is the ListBox the correct control for this requirement?
If not what is the correct control, and is it a standard VB control or do I have to get it from elsewhere, if so where?
Can I somehoe change the FileList Box to suit my purpose?

Cheers,

Matt

I think you can use the listbox, but if it's the best solution...?

When you copy a node-text to the listbox then make it a 'friendly'-text.
Then in your process sub check the List1.Text property (make sure to have set the style to 2) and do all the necessay actions.
