Hi,
I  have a list box using the checkbox style.
Is there a way to determine if a certain item in the list is checked? If not, what good is the checkbox ?

I am using the ItemCheck event when I click on an item to check or uncheck it, but I don't see how to determine if the item is checked or not.

Thanks

Jeff

use the Selected collection:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim intI As Integer

    For intI = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
        If List1.Selected(intI) Then MsgBox List1.List(intI) & " is selected!"
    Next
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    With List1
        .AddItem "item 1"
        .AddItem "item 2"
        .AddItem "item 3"
        .AddItem "item 4"
        .AddItem "item 5"
    End With
End Sub
