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,

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,
