How would I change the font properties of an item in a list to make it bold. Not all the items in a listbox, but just certain items? Thanks,

I don't think you can do that in the standard listbox, you can create your own listbox using a white picturebox with lables on top, and then simply write the events for the control.
If you neeed more help just ask.

Try using a listview control. Have a look at this control at:

To all,

A listview control would be fine. Anything that will accomplish what I need. How do I do it though?

matthewroberts,

I read the info you posted in the link above, but I still don't see a way of doing it the way I needed. Can you post some code (or someone) of how to bold only one item in a listbox or listview control. Thanks,

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ezmatt,

I will look tomorrow, but I think I scrapped the code I used a while back and no longer have it. I'll look anyway.

ezmatt,

I looked for that code and could not find it in my stash. I believe I did trash it. However if I do locate it I'll be sure to post the info for you. My apologies if I can't,
